Consistently Consistent = LIFESTYLE

With this FD approach, it can be very very difficult to make a change.  In fact, making a change for the good to turn it into a LIFESTYLE HABIT!  If we keep having that mentality of “oh – I’ll do it tomorrow” or “oh – I’ll eat that extra serving of cake” or whatever your goal/task is you want to accomplish (job-related or personal) – these habits will continue to be CONSISTENTLY IN-CONSISTENT.  We need to set SMART goals – Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely.  Sometimes we just need to take a look at the big picture and ask ourselves “If I do this or put this off for a day or two, will it impact my overall long-term goal?”.  The goal at the moment may not be “ideal but ideal DOESN’T MATTER if you can’t apply it CONSISTENTLY” (per Ms. Sohee Lee).  Make a list of your top 3 priorities for the day/week – if you have more than that, then you actually don’t have priorities at all (I’m guilty of this….something I’ve been trying to work on recently).  We MUST strive to keep a CONSISTENT lifestyle – going to the gym an x-amount of days per week; reading an article/book an x-amount of days per week; taking time out of our day to just sit back and smell the roses.  The point is – CONSISTENCY BUILDS HABITS and then, in turn, MAKES A LIFESTYLE CHANGE.  Remember, we all get derailed at times during many aspects of our life (not just with our nutrition) – just keep on a consistent pattern and it will soon become a habit; once that habit is imbedded in our daily patterns of life then it becomes a LIFESTYLE.  Hope this thought helps with your nutrition, training, or daily life happenings.  Remember to take time off and just take advantage of downtime (me included).  Keep training hard and developing that consistent pattern in your life – whatever your work may be.
