One of my favorite sayings around my fitness approach would be: “It’s better to stay ready than to get ready.”
What does that mean exactly? Instead of throwing all caution to the wind during vacations, holidays or even stressful events that happen in life when it comes to your diet and daily exercise, it’s better to do what you can, when you can, so bouncing back is way easier.
Think about it this way: If you’re on point with your meals and regular gym visits and then you spend the stretch from Thanksgiving to New Years having totally “given up”, fulfilling those New Year’s resolutions and getting that “bikini body” will be a whole lot harder for you, your body and your mind come January 1st.
You know what will make it easier? Doing what you can. Perhaps some weeks you will go to the gym five times while others you may have gone only three and thats perfectly OK!
