This Is How It Is...

  • Good intentions aren't as good as a good workout.

  • 
Plan to do well and you might actually do well.


  • If you're not pushing yourself, you're standing still.

  • You could really use a good night’s sleep.

  • Look before you leap… but then leap!

  • We all fall off the wagon… it’s the interval between falls that makes all the difference.

  • 
A little bit of junk food almost invariably leads to a lot of junk food.


  • You don't necessarily have to wait til Monday to shift this thing back
in high gear.

  • 
Six months can change your life.

  • Everything you want out of this life is still within your grasp.

  • Standing on the sidelines sucks.

  • You’re a lot stronger than you give yourself credit.

  • It’s easier to keep the ball rolling than to start the ball rolling.

  • This thing can be simple… if you make it simple.

  • Eating more slowly is the first step towards eating more mindfully.

  • This isn’t forever; it’s just for the rest of your life.

  • You control virtually every aspect of this journey
.

  • You're worth the effort!

  1. Six months really can change your life - I think that's the take away from this list. In six months your life can be different, never to return to this again. Just six months.

  2. I needed to read something like this - thanks :)
    I just came back to reality after a 3 month (a.k.a. 20lbs) hiatus.... And you're right - All I'm doing right now is looking at the next six months of my life - in the big picture - that's nothing, right?

  5. "Six months to change your life" really grabbed me as well, Roxie. That's not a heck of a lot of time in the grand scheme of things. I can do this!

  7. Such a great post. I think a lot of people forget the "You’re a lot stronger than you give yourself credit" one.

  19. Thanks Jack. This is so helpful that I've printed it out. I'm struggling lately (well, more than lately) and maybe if I make some of these a mantra, I'll get back on track...
