I was conversing with a friend as she teared up so many times and it was heartbreaking. I’m a good listener and I will not say “I know what you mean” even if I do. Why not, because I don’t want to hear it either when I share moments.
What was going on, well she made so many changes to her life to accomplish her fitness goals, and feels as if she wasn’t accomplishing anything so what happened?, she gave up. My only words were ” Don’t stop, it’s time to re-evaluate and tweak it (the goals).
I did this at one time, I was on a roll, eliminating so much from my diet, incorporating other things in, increasing my workouts because I thought, if I pushed harder than normal I’d make it to my goal much quicker.
What happened?, I put stress on my body with eliminating too much, working out like crazy without knowing how my body would respond and I was in a good way “ a ball of mess, an entangled mess”. I was failing all of a sudden and I gave up on me, for a minute. I cried, I was angry and I then begin to think with reason.
I did a slow elimination, and a slow increase in certain areas of my fitness. The slow but consistent change has allowed me to continue to progress and see change.
To you I say don’t make too many changes and most of all don’t give up on you.
