It is certainly no secret that I love inspiring quotes. I especially love the ones that make me feel as though a light just went off in my head.
My boyfriend, who is in great shape, said something recently that I don’t think I’ll ever forget. From time to time he runs into people who explain how he has touched their lives, and because he says things like this I’m not surprised.
He said “If you stick to the basics, you never have to go back to the basics.” Isn’t that brilliant? He wasn’t talking about weight loss at the time, but it fits right in with healthy living.
I find myself sticking to the basics, and it works consistently. If I eat at least 5 servings of fruit and veggies today, a couple servings of lean protein, exercise and drink water then I should be good to go. I also make goals for the day rather than overwhelming myself with my ultimate goal.
Is it easy for you to stick to the basics? Or do you find yourself doing it a different way?
What works for you?
