Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner. Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Welcome to our team! You have come to the right place to find support for building your fitness plan. You asked about ways to build muscle mass. The following is a link to a SparkPeople site with information about strength training. It provides some guidelines to get you started:
"When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.” Mr. Rogers

Hi everyone! I'm happy to join you all and share our ideas about healthy and happy living. I'm a psychotherapist and life coach who knows that I thrive in a community of mutual support. I'm hoping to persevere in eating nutritious food, increase my exercise, and build up my muscle mass. Any hints on the latter? Have a beautiful day!
