When it comes to setting fitness and health goals look to start building a lifestyle rather than looking for short cuts and quick fixes.
Too many people driven to lose weight after the holidays join in on a detox, 30 day weight loss challenge or starvation diet. They go from zero to 100 mph in two seconds- resolving to drink more water, not touch alcohol ever, zero carbs and sugar, workout every day.the list of extreme goes on……
Good intentions do not necessarily reflect success
Remember THE GOAL IS NOT TO JUST LOSE WEIGHT. It’s to create a sustainable lifestyle that allows you to keep it off and actually live your life.
On your journey of weight loss don't forget to also keep the big picture in mind. To be successful in losing and keeping weight off you must be patient consistent and keep perspective.
Focus on doing things the right way not the "easy" way. Have patience and understand the process will not be painless or perfect. You can't give up at the first sign of struggle. If you miss a workout, it's just one missed workout. You don't need to start over. You don't need to give up. LEARN FROM IT! Adapt. Adjust. Move on. If you slipped up and made some poor diet choices- guess what.... EVERYONE DOES! Just get back on track and KEEP GOING. No need to punish yourself with extra cardio or time in the gym no need to further restrict your calories
Stay focused …..stay the course
BEING PERFECT doesn’t equal results.
DETERMINATION AND PERSISTENCE WINS IN THE LONG RUN.
A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE IS A MARATHON NOT A SPRINT
