Sometimes it all too easy to aim high and think too much about the bigger picture.
Rather than thinking “unless I can lose 3 stone it’s not worth missing out on that take away or glass of wine” or “I missed a week of exercise so another few days won’t matter” or “I’d really like to be like my friend who’s super fit but I just don’t have the time / inclination / energy / dedication”.
Don’t write yourself off if you can’t be perfect. You have to aim to be the best version of you at this point in time. Yes, long term goals are important but they have to be meaningful and realistic. There has to be a time frame. Even if you can’t hit those dizzy heights you can try along the way. It’s not like you aren’t progressing – if you fail to try that’s when you stop moving forwards.
Progress is making better choices about your health, exercise regime and diet on a daily basis. It might seem trivial choosing to have breakfast, walk to work, skip that glass of wine, try harder during a Bodycare workout but in reality, these are the little things that count towards making progress.
Perfection exists in very few people’s world…so few in fact, we haven’t ever met any!
Keep trying, keep progressing.
