staying consistent for body makeover results

by monica

"In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.” Tony Robbins

"Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconscious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character." Stephen Covey

Life will always conspire to get in between you and your body makeover goals but it's what you do most often that matters most. How you train and how you eat 80% of the time is what makes all the difference.

The pic above and the video here is what I try to do most of the time but life doesn't always workout like that so I have days when I eat the wrong things or end up only doing some mobility and stretching or a short easy walk instead of a long challenging one.

But I just get back to my routine the next day and try to stay consistent for days until I have another off day which doesn't happen that often for me but used to happen a lot in my early 30's when I used to try to be perfect all the time.

Perfection is not necessary for body makeover results but consistency is key! How are your consistent actions shaping your body your health and your life and what do your consistent actions say about your character?

My meals in pic above in case you are curious are:

1. watermelon cherry chia green superfoods electrolyte shake (ran out of greens and can't get more because we're going out of town) plus 8 oz water and 1/2 cup organic granola cereal w/almond milk (had not eaten cereal in ages and was great having some a few times this week but not making this a habit).

1.5 Also had 2 cups coffee w/ splash almond milk before and after breakfast plus 24 oz water before and after workout

2. grilled chicken and purple cabbage, carrot, celery, quinoa salad w/olive oil, lemon, apple cider vinegar, mustard, honey, sesame seeds dressing (homemade), 8 oz water

3. yogurt and apricot, 8 oz water

4. having same as meal #2 and 24 oz water
