I often find the people with the most excuses gain little in life.

Make a plan to move forward, and keep moving forward. Gain momentum by taking small steps in the right direction.

Lets talk about nutrition. Forget that “Its too hard”…”my kids complain about not having cereal” ….”My partner won’t eat a meal without bread” wha wha wha

Just focus on yourself. Don’t worry about converting everyone else. Start with breakfast; clean it up for 7 days.  While you’re doing that, make sure you hit the gym at least 3x that week. Go to bed early and take your fish oil. These are all small steps but they add up. Start that forward momentum and then keep it rolling.

The same momentum can happen and negatively impact your life. Giving up first thing in the morning by having tea and toast, then a sandwich for lunch because ‘its easy’ and then ordering pizza for dinner because that’s what the kids want.  Skipping the gym, staying up late all this just makes you feel like crap.

There is a simple solution to feel better, gain confidence and getting the life you want. Eating good food, hitting the gym 3 or 4 times a week and adopting healthy habits is a step in the right direction.

So ask yourself, are you taking small steps each day to reach your goals? Or are you sabotaging yourself by taking steps backwards?

If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you always get. Time to make a change.

Time to make your behavior, match your goals.

Thanks to Aldon and Tamara for the use of the scaffold. I am sure everyone appreciates the extra illumination. Hope the “Tough Guy” yesterday wasn’t too tough, I am sure the weather didn’t help though.
