The weather was crazy over here in Ohio-land this weekend. It was in the upper 50’s on Saturday and yesterday, it was 68 degrees!! I am now officially cleaning out my closet and preparing for spring. That’s it. I cannot wait any longer! The weather wasn’t the only crazy thing that happened this weekend … I actually went running (!) AND I ran over 5 miles (!!!) blasting my previous distance (4 miles) out of the water. I’m so proud of myself.
As I was running in the gorgeous windy, sunshiney weather I was reminded about the need to celebrate. I don’t think we celebrate ourselves enough. I know I don’t. I’m talking about celebrating when you accomplish goals whether they’re little or big. Taking a breath and embracing the moment. Appreciating your hard work and acknowledging how far you’ve come.
Let’s take a moment right now and celebrate our accomplishments. There are definitely some amazing milestones worth celebrating.
- Did you resist food temptation? Celebrate!
- Did you workout when you didn’t feel like it? Celebrate!
- Did you just beat a personal fitness record? Celebrate!
- Have you made progress toward your 2013 goals? Celebrate!
- Have you cut out negative influences resulting in a healthier you? Celebrate!
There are so many reasons to celebrate and we pass them by all too often. Today, my challenge to you is to give yourself a pat on the back. Do a crazy little dance. Jump up and down. Sing or shout and celebrate yourself. You deserve it.

P.S. I have an exciting announcement! Very soon (maybe even in the next week!) I will be moving to a self-hosted site. You’ll be able to find me at KateUpdates.com (much easier than my previously long url). This will enable me to offer more helpful resources so I’m really excited about it. I will also be changing the look and feel of my blog so it’s going to be pretty awesome. Just a heads up … more to come!
