If you want to see lasting change, you need to make your changes last. Not drinking for a month is great but what happens after January?
Even more dangerous is going all in on a new lifestyle, only to realise it’s unsustainable. Have you ever signed up to a gym or a class to quit 2 months later? You need to be consistently changing the way you live. It’s going to take great discipline to over come your habits and temptations. And, I’m sorry to say, you need to sacrifice your time, energy and excuses in order to make these changes.
Calling all yoyo dieters/gym goers:
Consistency is hard if you go to extremes. If your relatively unfit and have been eating crap for the last few years, don’t expect to transform yourself into an all-day-everyday-#fitnessfreak. Start smaller and build up your discipline over time. Likewise, sacrificing everything at once is going to take enormous amounts of discipline. Your going to ‘fall of the diet wagon’ at some point. Everyone does. Just make sure that you consistently climb back onto the wagon. Even if you are slightly flabbier when you fell off.
2019 is here, let’s go forward and make sure we aren’t setting the same goals in 2020!
