What holds you back from accomplishing your goals, or even attempting them? We can always blame schedules, time conflicts, too busy, too tired, but it almost always boils down to fear. Fear of failure. We've all failed at accomplishing a goal at some point. Whether it was getting down to a certain clothing size, running a faster mile, being able to run a mile, or starting to eat healthier. Don't let past failures make you feel defeated.

The best way to make a change to be a better YOU is to commit 100% and then be able to see the results- no matter how slowly they might seem. Changes take time!

Consistency is key in making a change. If you're tackling healthy eating, think long term. No one is perfect, and of course there will be less than healthy moments. Remember- one bad meal isn't going to make you fat, just like one good meal isn't going to make you healthy.  

One big fear of mine during pregnancy was never being able to bounce back. I was convinced at around 8-9 months that my body would NEVER look the same. I may have complained to my husband about this- while eating ice cream on the couch! The truth is, things will change, but it doesn't have to be permanent. Getting your body back after pregnancy is hard, and will take time. But- it can be done.

Do NOT let fear foil your fitness goals!
