You have the choice about how you feel when faced with challenges in your workouts, creating time for your meal plan or meal journal and your reaction to the ups and downs you experience while on the journey towards your goals.
Failure (which only really happens when you stop trying) or success is defined by your choices. You need to realize that where you are at in your life, how you deal with stress and how you face challenges is always the outcome of your choices.
At the most basic level your environment and emotional state drives those choices, be aware of who you surround yourself with and the habits that drive your day.
Most of the time struggles in the gym with workouts and food temptations have more to do with emotional resiliency than the workouts or meal plan. So it’s just as important to work on your emotional resiliency.
The 4 aspects of Emotional resiliency you’ll want to focus on are:
- Self esteem
- Mindset and an optimistic attitude
- Living in line with your “why”
You can’t predict the number on the scale or the weeks, months or years it will take to reach your goals. But you can choose put yourself in a supportive environment, and you can choose to feel good about making a positive change to your health and fitness.
