I have to admit, this quote stepped on my toes quite a bit. I started off strong and little by little have gotten back into some bad habits. The good thing is its not to late, the challenge isn't over and my victory isn't either. Maybe you have done the same thing, maybe not. Either way take a minute to reflect and move forward toward the change you want to see. Don't give up, don't quit! Keep pressing through and reminding yourself that the consistency is worth the end goal. Set small daily goals. Don't let the scale tell you your victory, go by how your clothes fit, how you physically feel, skin improvements, etc.
Keep on keeping on and YOU WILL REACH YOUR GOAL!
Health Challenge 2018 has begun. Hope everyone is doing well so far and hasn't fallen into the same trap as this guy below. Mindset, accountability & consistency are half the battle, keep your head in the game and keep pressing through to reach those goals.

Kim - My 3 goals are as follows: 1. MIND - Learn Spanish to have at minimum a basic conversation (albeit slow and probably broken) to the best of my ability (Language is not "my thing". I have a hard enough time with English. I'm a math and science person!) 2. BODY - Get in shape by committing to a strengthening program 3 days per week and no more than 12 grams (3 tsp) of refined sugar per day. 3. HAPPINESS - Allocate 6 hours per week to enjoy whatever makes me happy (can't be work) that is not a requirement to be done.
