Are you working against yourself? If you are not making regular gains in health and fitness and find yourself in a cycle of setbacks, perhaps you are neglecting the basics of getting 7 to 8 hours sleep; eating healthy and staying away from junk foods; and exercising regularly without overdoing it. Maybe there’s a part of ourselves that says I can cheat like I did when I was younger. Whether we’re young or older, we need to have commitment.
There is another phenomenon– one that doesn’t really believe that change can come. A self-fulfilling prophecy of failure that allows us to go to bed late, overeat or eat junk food, and proclaim, “There you see, I told you I couldn’t do it.” We need to be honest with ourselves and confront this little fitness demon. In other words, we need to take a step back and be open to the possibility that we’re sabotaging our own efforts– as illogical as that may sound.
Above all things point your attitude and fortitude in the right direction and you will reach your destination. Attitude is of primary importance, for without it no regimen, diet, device, or contraption can help us reach our goals. But with the proper attitude, we reach our goals despite our circumstances.
