A quick thought for you while on your way to improved health, fat loss, fitness and just about anything else for that matter.

Stay consistent. Be patient.

Slow and steady wins the race. Don't try and do it all at once. You'll go into overwhelm and quit.

George Ford said: Some self-confronting questions: "Where do I want to be at any
given time?" "How am I going to get there? "What do I have to do to get myself
from where I am to where I want to be?"... "What's the first, small step I can
take to get moving?.

Small steps. Very important.

These help us stay consistent. Start by taking a step, any step in the right direction. Stay the course. Over time you will be amazed at the differences consistency can make.

One important step is strength training. Do it my way or some other safe and productive way but DO IT. Stick to it once a week. Over time, grow to twice if you can.

Little by little you will see changes that motivate you. Then, as this becomes habit, start eating healthier. Avoid refined sugar to start. Just that.

As this becomes habit, decrease smoking or alcohol or some other habit you know to be bad.

One step at a time and keep the steps coming.

Patience is a necessary ingredient of genius. - Benjamin Disraeli
