Embrace both Consistency and Imperfection
It's not what we do once in a while that creates results, it's what we do consistently. If you're consistent, the results will follow. I've found that those who are most successful losing weight are those who embrace consistency and imperfection.
Not everything is going to be perfect when trying to lose weight or putting on muscle, or even starting to workout. And you have to be ok with that to move on and be consistent. If you keep thinking that everything has to be perfect, then you won't ever appreciate the small achievements that you are making. Then sadly what happens is, you give up. So remember it's not about being perfect, it's about being consistent and seeing those smaller achievements that lead to the bigger ones.
Be patient, be positive, be passionate about your goals to push through and embrace both consistency and imperfection. And remember results don't come overnight.
As always, take one day at a time, one meal and one workout. And remember small changes lead to big benefits.
