We all have bad days. We ate something unhealthy or we hit the snooze button instead of hitting the gym – it happens and that’s okay. The more important thing to focus on is how you respond to having a bad day. Do you let it spiral out of control and string several bad meals together? Or do you give up on the gym for the week and try again Monday?
Each day (or each meal) is an opportunity to get back on track. Our health requires consistency. In the long run, one bad meal or missing one workout will not impact much. It’s when it happens frequently when we start to see a decline in progress.
Working towards a healthy, sustainable lifestyle requires time and effort. Bad days happen. Instead of feeling guilty, we should acknowledge it for what it is then get back on track.
