More often than not, we’re the ones responsible for our lack of consistency.
This is the case even if life’s circumstances play a role.
We had an awesome meal planned.
We set out our gym clothes for a training sesh.
We cleared our evening so that we could get to bed early.
But then life gets in the way.
We get called into work.
A friend or family member needs help.
Some “thing” comes up that derails our plans.
Or maybe we’ve been nailing our habits for a few months and then go on a vacation or holiday.
And we deviate from our habits.
Then, for weeks or months, we just can’t seem to get back on track.
We’ve “blown it”.
All of our progress is “ruined”.
We “always do this”.
These situations have at least one common denominator.
We throw in the towel after a deviation from our plans.
We let one small step off of the path we’d planned keep us from getting back to our routine.
What’s that all about?
If you missed brushing your teeth one day, would you beat yourself up and stop entirely for weeks on end?
You’d probably just get on with business as usual at the next opportunity.
What if you looked at your movement, eating, stress management, and sleep habits this way?
What if you looked at these habits as things you do for no other reason than that they make your life better?
For no other reason than that they keep you healthy and happy?
If they don’t, you might reconsider your strategy.
You deserve nothing but the best life.
It starts not with what’s on your plate or on the barbell.
It starts with what’s going on between your ears.
It starts with you.
You are so freaking worthy.
You’ve got this.
