I love myself, but some days it is more of a negotiating process.
The key difference between success and failure is enjoyment. The fundamental flaw with the approach of both the dieting and medical industries is the focus on willpower/restriction, the mantra “no pain, no gain.”
I want to be the image of health that I’ve presented myself as. The go-getter who hits the gym daily, eats the right things, and gets enough sleep. But my reality is far from that because my illness doesn’t allow for it.
People like to use the excuse “I’m too busy” when it comes to working out. But if you think about it, everyone is busy. We have jobs, school, social lives, laundry, and Netflix to spend our time with.
If you’re into running or biking, test out apps like Strava, MapMyRun by Under Armour, and Nike+ that record your distance and pace.

You need someone to answer to, someone who keeps track of you, and someone who motivates you. You need a plan you won’t be able to duck out of.
