Even though the tortoise was naturally much slower than the hare, he kept a steady pace towards the finish line and was able to cross it first.
So the moral of this story was….
Slow and steady wins the race.
To reach your weight loss and or strength training goals, you need to switch from the hare’s mind set to thinking like the tortoise’s.
Are you the type to start diet and strength training plans with an “all or nothing” mentality, watch everything you eat and obsessively workout seven days a week to fall off the wagon and give up hope?
This mentality is very common among the newbies and can become very unhealthy and may end up leading to failure.
If you’re dealing with the “all or nothing” syndrome then I need you to shift your thinking. Human beings are imperfect and no matter how dedicated we are, it is inevitable that we will eventually skip a workout or give in to some sort of temptation like those amazing Christmas cookies that will fill you with guilt and cause you to feel like a failure and want to give up entirely!
So Small world beauties, this 2009 I want you to start thinking like a tortoise and pace yourself. Allow yourself to have a slice of pizza or take a day off every now and again!
Just remember not to stray too far from the path that will lead you to your goals.
let’s start the year winning the race!
