When it comes to achieving goals, many of us get frustrated or discouraged if we don’t stick to our plan perfectly.
But in reality, life can often throw a wrench in our best laid plans. Work, school, family obligations can all get in the way of our best efforts and missteps can occur. But rather than losing focus or even giving up when life gets in the way, look for ways to make better choices than you normally would.
Rather than grabbing a candy bar or chips from a vending machine, look for a low carb protein bar, or pretzels. Better yet pack healthy snacks to carry with you. Protein bars, tuna packets, or nuts make excellent packable snacks for when you’re on the run.
When it comes to your workouts it is best to stay on track, but if you cannot make it to the gym have a plan to ensure you get some physical activity in for the day. Take a walk on your lunch break or do a few exercises while watching TV.
Remember, 10 baby steps are just as effective as 1 giant leap when working toward any goal.
