It's Not All Roses...

If it were easy everyone would be walking around super lean, taking no medications, and happy as pie. 

If it were easy we wouldn't be in business because everyone would be so self-motivated they would work out on their own, get great results, keep themselves safe, and hold themselves accountable. 

But that's fairyland. 

It just doesn't exist. 

This journey you're on is not all roses.

It's not going to be easy. 

You're going to have some big wins and have some things to celebrate. 

Other days you're going to feel like giving up and throwing in the towel. 

For those who know me well, you know I love analogies. 

I have an analogy for almost anything in life. 

The fitness journey is like a rollercoaster. 

You're going to be scared when you first start. 

It's going to start with a big uphill climb to get the momentum going. 

There's going to be lots of ups and downs.

But in the end, you leave with a smile on your face and ready for more. 

Plus, isn't it the ups and downs of a rollercoaster that makes it fun?

Enjoy the ride. 

Realize you're going to have some good days and some not so good days. 

It's going to be hard, but it's in those moments that you learn what you really need to change, how you're really motivated. 

A month from now we're all going to be motivated. 

It will be a new year. 

New things, new beginnings, and new motivation. 

That's all great, we need to ride the wave and take advantage of that motivation. 

But we also need to realize that these next four weeks leading up to that time are tough for most of us. 

It's easy to go off the plan and to become inconsistent. 

But hey, it's just part of the rollercoaster, right?

Keep pushing.

Finish out 2017 strong. 

Embrace the ride. 

1% Better.

Dedicated to Your Success,
