List YOUR reasons/excuses on why YOUR diets and exercise plans have not been well executed in the past. OK that might be too long a list, so give 3 or 4 reasons and for each write a strategy that will keep you on track for 8 weeks. Let's learn from our past behaviors and make this our best Challenge ever!
Lets see. Usually it all comes down to one key thing. I give up on myself. I don't see any results, and start to get frustrated. Then I decide why not take a day off. It won't make any difference. Then it becomes two. Then three. You get the picture.
I also tend to only do "good enough". I don't push myself very often. I know I can't push to my limits all the time, but I need to push farther more often.
So what will keep me on track for these 8 weeks? Well, part of it will be that I don't want to let my team down. Regardless of what the scale says, I can measure my success by simply being able to track some fitness. Or tracking my foods. Whatever I need to do to help the team out.
