If you do, you are setting yourself up for failure, for no one is perfect, and you are going to make mistakes and eat something you shouldn't or go that day without exercising. Just remember we are all human and we make mistakes, but it is what we do with those mistakes that determines if we succeed
Take the time to sit down and think about why you did it and what were the extenuating circumstances. Then take the lesson that you learned and add it to your list of goals to tackle and move forward. One second, one moment, one hour at a time....keep that motivation high and you will succeed.
