It may take a while to get the results you want. You may jump off a diet or exercise program. You may fail on some of your goals. This is the battle and not the war. And there is no war anyone. There is commitment and having fun! You are taking care of yourself, and connecting your spirit, mind and body.
No matter how it looks, even if how you feel or look does not look like you thought it would at a particular time, or you feel pain or other people do not like how you look, be a stand for yourself and what you want. Be a stand for your health and fitness, and your fitness goals without being attached to the results. This means BE health, fitness and the results while accepting where you are now in a context of this is how it looks when it works.
Be a stand for what the future will be, while you do what you need to do now with an attitude that you have already arrived, and there is nowhere to get anyway.
