1. You can’t rush something you want to last forever
This motivational pin can be applied to many parts of life, but especially where your health and fitness are concerned. If you really want to make a change in your life, whether is is becoming more active, eating healthier, or cutting out bad habits, you can not expect change to happen over night. Change takes time. One healthy meal will not make or break you. One workout will not change your body. It is all about making consistently healthy choices and being patient. You WILL see the results, you need only to stick to your goals and remember that change doesn’t happen over night. So don’t try to rush it.
