One of my favorite quotes is “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” There has never been a more accurate quote, but what happens if you become un-motivated before what ever you are doing becomes a habit?
Sometimes, no a lot of times people become discouraged or frustrated because reaching their goal is taking longer than they had expected. As a result they stop performing the specific actions that are needed to reach their goal and those actions do not become habits, which leads to nothing changing.
Therefore this post serves as a reminder that the health and fitness goals you choose should be part of a bigger picture, HEALTHY LIVING! Everything you are doing is a process, a lifestyle change, not a quick fix.
It is not going to happen over night or over a week, but it will happen if you stick with it, be patient and maintain an attitude (and behavior) that moves you in the right direction!
