My goal was to stay active, enjoy the "Active Lifestyle" I have constructed over the past six to eight years, and get comfortable maintaining that level of activity in the body that I HAVE, rather than waiting to start enjoying activities when I have the body I'm "supposed to obtain." The part of that shift that was hardest for me was learning to tell the difference between "being kind to myself" vs. "being lazy" or "being complacent." It's still not second-nature, but when I take the time to think through my decision-making process, it's always really easy to decipher.
Sometimes, "just showing up" is a win. And I'm all about rewarding, celebrating, and acknowledging those days and giving props to myself when I Just Show Up.

The trick is knowing what day it is, and pushing myself appropriately.
