This week is an inspirational one. And in keeping with that spirit, here is another article to help with the ‘why’, rather than the ‘how’ when it comes to fitness and reaching your goals.
Sticking to a plan can be tough. Whether it is a plan to get a new career, do better in school, or lose fat and gain muscle. The common factor among all plans is discipline. If you want to realize something you must stay focused even in the tough or slow times. It is easy to stick to something while we are getting the results we want. They key is to persevere through the more trying times.
It is important to remember that simply because you deviated a bit is not a reason to quit or start over. Like in a diet: if you ate a slice of cake or some other junk do not use it as a reason to continue down that path. You do not have to wait until the beginning of the next week to restart your healthy eating, you can do it immediately. Likewise, a bad grade or a rejection from a possible job is no reason to second guess yourself. Get back on your path immediately.
