Weight is the easiest fitness goal to measure. Saying, “I’ve burned off a solid 20 pounds since March,” feels good and inspires others. Disengaging from stressful situations is harder to measure. Plowing through those cortisol circumstances, where I might subconsciously need to overeat/overindulge as a coping mechanism, and instead funneling that negative energy into exercise or rewarding myself with positive activities for doing my best. Maybe there is a way to measure that? At least casually?
