Why You Try and Fail Time and Again

“A man may fail many times but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.”
John Burroughs

We have found that when people make the decision to lose weight and become fit, they’re usually enthusiastic about their new lifestyle. They begin with a fervor and end the program much too soon because they’ve tried to do too much – too fast.

Going overboard at first may also cause injuries. If you know your muscles aren’t ready for an intensive workout, don’t do it. It will cause more problems than you’ll want to deal with.

Plan for small, incremental fitness changes, such as walking a few minutes per day, a couple of times per week – or swim for fitness so it will be easier on your body. One thing to remember when you begin to plan fitness goals is to be very specific.

Don’t just think “get fit” is going to be enough motivation and information to guide you through the long run. Make small changes and when you’re ready move on. Goals should also be carefully planned.

If you’re worn out in the evening hours from working all day, set a goal to get up earlier in the morning to walk or exercise. If your long term goal is to run in a marathon, you’re going to have to plan carefully so you’re up to the challenge when the time comes.

Short term goals lead to the long term goals you desire, so plan them as carefully as the ones you want to eventually reach. By setting realistic short term goals, you’ll find that if you stay committed and consistent, it won’t seem as difficult or overwhelming as it did at first.
