Instead of dieting so hard this week, train yourself to make a better choice with come to foods. Instead of benching 250 pounds, make a plan to increase small weights every week and never miss any session. Rather aiming to achieve the one big hit, focus on building habit and progress in a slow pace.

Sometimes no amount of discipline can influence a body. Sometimes discipline is just an excuse to punish ourselves: I will make my muscles ache and my lungs scream for air, because I am not yet a good enough version of myself.
