When you want to take your health and fitness to the next level, getting motivated is easy. Read an inspirational quote on Facebook. Get a pep talk from your trainer. Listen to upbeat music on your iPod. You’re all pumped up, ready to take on the world. ‘I’ve got this,’ you tell yourself. You’re going to kick those bad habits. Kickstart some good habits. It’s on!
But you and I both know the way the story starts is not necessarily how it ends. Even with the best intentions, we’re back to square one in no time, trying to get ourselves going again.
