In the beginning, PRs come all the time.
Every time you put forth effort, you have an opportunity to PR.
Everything is new, exciting, and you frequently feel accomplished.
As the years press on, the PRs become fewer and farther between. It takes more effort to hit a PR because you just aren’t passing milestones like you used to.
I beleive it’s easy to become desensitized to the frequency of PRs. It’s easy to forget the feeling of accomplishment. It’s easy to trivialize that “I just PR’d feeling”.
PRs aren’t just for the gym either. They’re for life.
So .. this thing happened this week.
And let me tell you, there’s nothing like a physical set back to make that PR feeling come right back to you.
Earlier this week I got my first post-pregnancy PR. It felt amazing.
There aren’t many things I’ve felt like I’m doing significantly well since I had Molly, so it was nice to celebrate this little achievement.
& we have to do that. Celebrate the little achievements. Celebrate the baby steps.
It’s okay to pat yourself on the back when you succeed.
To feel good about the little accomplishments.
To know that your effort and time paid off.
Fill your life with little PRs … I promise you’ll feel happier.
I sure do!
