“I feel like I’m finally starting to really understand and “own” what it takes to reach my fitness/physique goals.
The most valuable lesson so far is that this really is a marathon. You aren’t going to lose or gain 5 pounds of *fat* in one day, regardless of what the scale says. It is the process of consistently and repeatably doing what you know works.
It is also not all or nothing.
When you screw up a meal, the next meal is an opportunity to make the right choice.
I used to mess up and then write the whole day off and use it as an excuse to just blow my plan. So I’ve learned to give myself a little grace and realize that one meal won’t make or break your diet, but 5, 10, 20 or 100 of them strung together certainly will.
You have been patient and encouraging and at the same time firm. I started in July of 2021 and while I made progress up the end of the year, I think I really hit my stride from Dec onward.
It just took time to figure out what really moves the needle for me and how to consistently and routinely do those things so they become habitual.
I think this quote sums it up as it does with everything in life:
👉🏻 ‘Thoughts Become Words, Words Become Actions, Actions Become Habits, Habits Become Character, Character Becomes Your Destiny’”
