TUESDAY TIP – WHY CONSISTENCY BEATS PERFECTION
Research proves that consistency beats perfection when it comes to your fitness routine and weight loss goals.
Perfection sets us up for unrealistic expectations that can lead to major disappointment that may ultimately set us back. We can get into this mental state of thinking that if it can’t be perfect, why bother.
Consistency, on the other hand, allows us to take realistic daily steps towards our goals. Whether it’s being consistent with your nutrition goals, or consistently showing up to your PT sessions, consistency always wins.
Consistency isn’t just important with fitness—it’s also just as important when it comes to nutrition. Healthy eating is truly a journey, not a final destination. It’s unrealistic to think about radically changing your diet overnight and then being perfect with every food choice. At the end of the day, it’s about balance, not perfection.
It’s also about consistency.
Challenge yourself to get out of the perfection headspace. Realise that no matter how small of a step you take, showing up and being consistent about reaching your fitness and weight loss goals is doing something positive. Making consistent healthy changes, no matter how small, are never a waste of time. Say goodbye to the idea of perfection and say hello to being realistic and consistent.
