Why You Keep Falling Off "The Wagon"

"It's just not for me." Have you told yourself that when it comes to a diet or workout program? I know I have time and time again and after being sick this week and feeling a bit discouraged a lightbulb went off in my head.

I think 80% of the time it's not that the program or diet isn't for you, it's that it becomes hard and you want to stop.

There are times when programs really aren't for you, this is true. You must be honest with yourself though and ask "is this just hard?". If it's just hard, well good. It should be! The body you want will never come from half assing ANY program.

A memory that comes to my mind is when I was going to do the 21 Day Sugar Detox with a friend. I didn't get through one day, and a few days later my friend and I both agreed it just wasn't for us.

The thing is, it would have changed our lives for the better! We couldn't let go of sugar, we needed sugar in our lives so instead of making a change and doing hard work we went for the easy way out.

Next time you want to say "this isn't for me" , remember to ask yourself if it's just hard. You know you can do hard things. You may not always want to, but if you want something you've never had you've got to do something you've never done.
