Bet you didn’t think about it this way the last time you gave up! If you’re hitting a plateau in your weight loss, KEEP GOING. If your mile time gained a few seconds, SO WHAT? Giving up, losing all your progress, and eventually starting over sucks way worse, so don’t even go there.

This idea is SO vital to achieving success in the fitness world. Don’t overwhelm yourself with focusing only on where you want to be in a year. Where do you want to be this week or tomorrow even? Set small goals to start with; instead of saying “I want to workout for an hour every day for the next six months,” say “I want to workout for an hour tonight.” That way, your goals are more easily achievable and you won’t get discouraged. Be realistic and focus on the now.

At the end of the day, whether you made it to the gym or ate a box of donuts instead, remember that you’re only human. Don’t expect perfection. Be happy with your journey and give yourself lots of pats on the back, even on your “off” days. You are doing the best you can and that is worth all the squats in the world.

Whether it’s Pinterest quotes or Eminem on your playlist, channel whatever motivates you and go conquer today. You won’t regret that satisfyingly sore feeling as you crawl into bed tonight, promise.
