Not long ago, you were energetic and determined to start your healthy lifestyle. Starting with enthusiasm and hope, you watched your food intake diligently, tracked your blood sugar religiously and exercised like it was going out of style. You were confident in your ability to stick with a heart-healthy lifestyle.
Then certain tragedy struck! You ate the piece of birthday cake and blew it. Or worse, you missed one workout which then turned into a whole week away from the gym. After that, your momentum to start over again was gone and your gym bag has not left the closet since.
Every time you misstep on your healthy journey, you have 2 choices: to keep walking backwards, which will surely take you even further away from your goals; or to accept that your lack of perfection as normal and forgivable, and take not one, but two positive steps down the path that brings you closer to the future you want. If you’re reading this, you might have been walking backwards for a while but instead of waiting for the next day, week, month or even a year to overhaul your habits, start TODAY!
