To succeed to need to balance contentment and ambition. When you can master this skill the sky is the limit. You will be happy, you will be successful and you will live the life of your dreams.
This I promise you.
Why is this important?
In order to move forward you must first be on solid ground. I love how Casey Kasem said it. You need to value where you are before you go somewhere else.
This is important because in order to win in the end you must have some emotional victories along the way. There victories build on each other and momentum is gained.
Another way to look at it is that if you are never satisfied with what you have done you will never be able to believe what you can do.
So how does this help on your health journey? I will give you an example.
You are trying to lose weight. You have ambitions. You want to lose the weight. You want to be better and you want to feel better. Clearly you have ambitions.
You also need to have contentment. You can can't be content with where you are. You can't be fine with that. BUT you need to have a certain amount of daily contentment in what you have done.
"I walked for 60 minutes today and I ate right." Contentment.
That is an important distinction. When you go to bed at night you have to be content that you are on the right path and what you have done is right.
You also have to be ambitious. You have to look at what you have done and find ways to improve and do it better.
Notice the balance. If you are never happy and satisfied with what you have done the question is this: when will you be?You will never be happy if you don't find contentment along the way.
You always need small victories to keep you going.
I hope that helps you. Be happy with your daily progress. Go to bed at ease knowing that you have done your best.
But get up and fight like hell for your dreams....

As you know we have started registration for the August edition of the 30 Day Clean Eating Challenge. Here is what one of the July participants had to say:
"I absolutely loved the 30 Day Challenge!! Teresa did an amazing job. I loved how organized and well thought out each week was, and I defiantly noticed a huge increase in my energy. (I dropped a few pounds, too!) All though, I would like to say that we eat fairly well at my house, this challenge showed me new ways to incorporate more nutrient dense foods into my daily diet. One of my greatest challenges is coming up with healthy meals and this took all the guess work out of it for me. I haven't taken the time to sit down to find new meals, but with this challenge you did all the work for me. My whole family enjoyed the meals. Now I have many delicious meals to add to my boring routine!" - Kristi
