Keeping Your Momentum-Learning To Be Patient

Sometimes, I ask of myself too much. I think too far ahead to the finish line, and not to where I am right now. When this happens, I am certainly headed for a fall. So, I read this interesting article about burnout, specifically geared around fitness and burning the candle at both ends too soon. It turns out that people need to give themselves time to process and learn this healthy lifestyle that we all are trying to achieve. Give a read and tell me your thoughts. I think it has some great strategies to success.

Workout Burnout? Avoid the Four Stages

I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

Happy Friday!


  1. Good article, thank you for sharing. I agree, it's all about "baby steps". Not taking it too fast too quickly - one step at a time. :)

  2. Interesting... I'm going to start another 6-week workout challenge on Monday. Wish me luck that injury/illness doesn't scupper my plans like it normally does! lol

  3. This post is made of win! It is a journey and we need to be patient with ourselves and allow ourselves time to become immersed in the process.

    Great article on workout burnout!! Thank you for sharing it with us!


  4. Hey girl...just rejoined your site...I guess I thought I had already done that. Oops..

    It's so hard to focus on the here and now. I'm always planning out the next thing and that steals the joy out of the present.
