Workout Tip: You Did Great!

Yesterday I spent my usual hour or so at the gym, and walked out huffing and puffing. As I walked out of the ladies locker room, there was a woman standing there who said to me, "Great Job. You're really doing great!" To which I replied, "Thank you so much!"

I had no idea who this woman was, or where she came from, but honestly she made my day. I thought to myself, "You know what, I am doing great!" A few steps later I heard her say the same thing to someone else leaving the locker room. My guess is she was a staffer who was assigned the task of encouraging members - Pretty cool job. The whole thing got me thinking that sometimes motivation really comes in such simple forms, like having someone tell you you've done a great job. So enlist a friend, coworker or family member to keep reminding you how well you are doing in your health and fitness endeavors. If you know someone that's been working their butt off (literally and figuratively) at the gym, then let them know they're doing a great job too!

Until then, from the bottom of my heart: You're doing a great job! Keep it up! After all it is positive thinking day!!!
