Even if you Falter ... Never Give Up.

Its really tough to stay committed to a healthy lifestyle sometimes. No matter how great our intentions are, or how committed we are, sometimes we falter.  Sometimes it feels like I'm standing at the bottom of a very steep set of stairs and looking up and not being sure whether I'll make it or not.

Sometimes its a day or a meal. Sometimes we miss a workout or two. Perhaps a week or a month. And then we (especially women cause we're just so darned good at it) start beating ourselves up over it. And that's when the downward spiral starts.

I sometimes feel like I'm an expert at faltering. But I never give up. Sometimes it's one thing I ate that makes me feel like crap, sometimes its because I haven't felt well enough to work out. But, with a lot of self talk, I get back on that horse so to speak. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that I just snap out of it. Sometimes I do and just wake up one day and say "enough is enough" and get back to it. Other times it takes a while.

I understand how easy it is to slide back into old habits. I know, I've done it often enough.

But I encouage you, when you falter, to reach out to someone who understands what it's like to go through this stay away from people who will tear you down.

Never hesitate to ask me for help or support. That's one reason why I do this ... To help you .... and you in turn end up helping me, whether you realize it or not.

Here's to health, happiness and a rich, full life!


  1. That is exactly my motto, never give up, no matter what as long as you can get back up then you are on the right track!

  2. This is a great motivation piece!

  3. it's not easy but it's worth to fight for!!! i am right now on a diet, and the last two weeks i had guests so i didn't follow my diet and i feel like a crap so I can't wait tomorrow!!!
