TIP: Think long-term.
It's important to remember that we all experience highs and lows in our fitness programs; it's how you deal with them that matters most. "People who accept the fitness process in its entirety, and hang in there during the lows, are the ones who succeed over time," Weitzenberg notes. You may not see appreciable gains every single week, but that's OK.
Try this On your work sheet, write down what your ultimate goals are, rather than the smaller steps you're taking to achieve them, also noting how eating right and exercising will benefit your health and well-being in the long-term. Use the successes you've experienced so far, and the goals you'll eventually achieve, to inspire you and keep you on track.
