If you’re like me, you’re not lacking in the resolution department. You have a laundry list of goals you hope to attain over the next year. You have the BEST of intentions. The problem is… that’s where it stops for some of us. That’s usually where it stops for me.
Part of what stops me in my tracks is striving for perfection. I want the meal prepping I do to be just right—I want to have everything in order so I can get my workouts in. Life usually has other plans.
We can’t let life stop us though, we must push through! We must develop the habit of being consistent. For some, the trouble is starting. Others may do well for a time, fall off the wagon, and never jump back on. The habit of consistency requires starting- and starting again every single day!
Google’s dictionary defines the word consistent as “acting or done in the same way over time”. Here’s one thing we must acknowledge: If we’re not making good decisions about our health and fitness on a consistent basis, the simple fact that we’re not has an adverse effect on our health and fitness. In other words: we’re either consistently making good decisions or we’re consistently making bad decisions.
Are you going to let time change you for good or for worse? Don’t let being a perfectionist stop you in your tracks. You can make a difference… just take it one day at a time!
