Staying on track with your goals, even when motivation wanes, is crucial. Accept that there will be days you’re just not feeling it, and plan for them in advance. Have a strategy that includes a few options to keep you moving forward—this could mean having a lighter workout planned instead of skipping it entirely, or choosing healthier “convenience” meals over fast food. Adopt an “all or something” mindset rather than “all or nothing.” Doing something, no matter how small, keeps the momentum and prevents the guilt or discouragement that often follows doing nothing. Small steps can still lead you toward your goals and help maintain progress.
