Patience with your goals

823e2428ba365c814f19ec05ae558c5aLet’s be completely honest with ourselves for a moment.

We’d all like to reach our goals overnight. Am I right? Yep.

Well, deep down I hope you all know that it’s just not going to happen.

You’re not going to drop 10%body fat in a week.

You’re not going to lose 25lbs in a month (research shows ~2lbs a week is a safe amount to lose).

Sometimes you’re going to sleep in and miss a workout. I do that! Gasp! Even as a trainer I sleep in because you know what?–I am tired sometimes. Life catches up and I may have stayed up too late watching Veronica Mars. It’s okay. I don’t beat myself up over it. 

Sometimes you’re going to eat food that isn’t conducive to reaching your goals (I had banana ice cream the other night that was made with heavy cream and half and half!!!).

Sometimes life happens and we have some minor setbacks. Maybe you got sick and it kept you from eating well or working out for an entire week. I hate when that happens, but just start fresh when you’re feeling better and keep going.
Please, don’t be yourself up over it. Don’t give up.

Tomorrow is a new day. 

And please, be patient with yourself. Setbacks will happen, but you MUST keep going. Reaching for your goals should be hard… maybe even complicated sometimes.

Getting healthy takes time. Getting healthy is worth it. Getting healthy will be the best thing you do for yourself.
Don’t stop working towards your goals.
