Take it one day at a time!
Starting a new healthy way of living, a new exercises regime or changing your diet can seem like a lot of work. Sometimes it can seem like too much work. Focusing on all that goes into it or on everything that is going to change can discourage you from achieving your goals. Even two years into my healthy living makeover I have to stop and remember to take it one day at a time. Especially when I buckle down and really try to focus on eating healthy.
Don't give up if you veer off your path either. Accept that you may indulge on a meal when out to dinner with friends, skip the gym for a few days or even fall off track. It's bound to happen here or there especially if you plan on making life long changes. The worst thing to do is throw in the towel and give up. If you do, you waste all the good you have already accomplished and you cheat yourself out of achieving success.
