Consistency is key

You might notice that I go to the gym every day. Most people go to the gym 3 or 4 days a week and some only go once or twice a week. All of these are better than doing nothing. Whatever schedule you do, just make sure to do it consistently.

I don’t go every day because I think I’m better than anyone else. I go every day because I need that level of routine and consistency. I know if I don’t go every day that I will not keep going. This was recently proven to be true. I started going every day for a few days and then I didn’t feel well so I didn’t go (which was fine) but then I didn’t go the next day and the next day and soon I didn’t go for over 2 weeks!

During that 2+ weeks there were probably a total of 4 days that I really shouldn’t have gone in due to illness. Once I kicked myself in the butt and decided to go every day, I got into the swing of things and started holding myself accountable again and it feels great!

You have to figure out what works best for you. I repeat – Do what is best for YOU. Don’t ever compare what you are doing with what someone else is doing. The only person you should be regularly comparing yourself to is you. Are you doing better than you were last week? Last month? Last year? That is all that matters. That should be your focus.

My biggest focus right now is just getting into the gym daily to make it a regular part of my routine. I am obviously doing better this month than last month and that’s what counts!
