Motivational Thread - Januray 27- February 2
“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.” ― John Wooden
It seems to me that many of us had a rough week last week. This is a new week with new opportunities! I hope today's motivational quote resonates with each of you. It can be difficult when we first start on a weight loss journey (or have been on that journey for some time). We plan our diet and our exercise with determination. The first few weeks, we're focused and ready to take on the world! Then life happens. We didn't have a chance to plan our meals or something in our day caused us to miss our workout. These things sometimes lead us to giving up completely or make us feel like we're failing. This is why I chose the quote today. Even if we miss a workout or we've eaten something that's not conducive to our goal, that's no reason to ditch our plan for the rest of the day. We just pick up where we left off and keep forging forward. Focus on what we can do....what we can do to turn things around and continue on our path.
Wishing us all a great week filled with determination and personal successes!Here's to a great week ahead!
