Ever went to the gym and left without working out?
And I’m talking, got dressed, drove the gym, sat in the parking lot trying to talk yourself into going in, finally made it inside, walked around for about two minutes, and then turned right back around and left?
Even as a personal trainer and registered dietitian, I understand the occasional battle of just not feeling like doing the things I need to do, no matter how great they are for me.
There are days I couldn’t care less about eating healthy and don’t want to step foot inside of a gym.
There have been days when I’ve driven to the gym, sleepy, and then sat in the car and took a nap instead of working out. And, yep, woke up and drove away without going inside.
There have even been times when I’ve gone into the gym, started a workout, completed one set, and then turned around and went home, avoiding eye contact with the staff at the front desk as I walked out.
Why am I telling you this?
Because most people will look at me and make assumptions about how “perfect” I must be.
I must be eating salads every night and live for the gym every day.
I must NEVER eat out or enjoy occasional desserts.
And it’s these types of assumptions that make a fit lifestyle seem unattainable to the average person.
Because you’re expecting perfection.
Because you don’t allow yourself opportunities to slip.
Because if you disappoint yourself, you allow it to throw you completely off track.
But success is based on that next decision.
The decision to get right back on track instead of allowing a negative mindset to tell you that you’ll never achieve your goal just because of a slip-up.
And you’re not always going to get it right.
And when you don’t, make sure that the next decision is the one that pushes you closer to your goal instead of further away from it.
