Timing is everything, I really needed to read this article.
I have to cut back on my exercising for a while and was getting bummed out about that.
This is my temporary 'setback' and hopefully soon I will be able to get back to walking again.

Telling It Like It Is
Listen, getting in shape is all about setting goals. Losing weight, building muscle, and ditching those unhealthy eating habits take guts and perseverance you're dealing with some major lifestyle changes here. When you decide what you want, make it specific and concrete. For example, don't just say that you want to "lose weight." Ask yourself some questions. How much weight? And is weight really the most important thing? Or is it more important that you climb your front steps with ease or lower your body-fat ratio? Think hard about what you want, and use your journal to keep track of your goals. Once you've figured out where you want to go, here's how you're going to get there:
Learn how to make decisions you can stick with. Remember, you're not just going on a diet, you're establishing a pattern of health that will increase the quality of your life. Think big, but choose small, attainable goals lose five pounds to start, or fit into pants one size smaller and build on them as you reach each one.
Allow yourself room for setbacks. One setback is only one setback it's not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you. You don't have to give up. Just get back on the bandwagon and keep going.
Walk the line between self-denial and self-indulgence. It's the middle ground between the two that will offer you the best foundation for building your new life. Maintain your discipline by allowing yourself little pleasures every now and again.
Understand that there are no mistakes. The things you used to think of as mistakes are now just learning experiences, so don't waste time beating yourself up. You'll encounter small failures everyone does. But you'll achieve success, too. Just remember, every pound you gain can be lost.
Faith in yourself and your hard work is what will keep you striving for the best. Now, get in the zone and push as hard as you can!
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.
