We all start somewhere. Even if you’ve been off your regimen, don’t expect to return at the same level of intensity you had when you stopped training. Set yourself up for success with small goals. When it comes to diet, enjoy a cheat day or an occasional cheat meal with reasonable portions. It gives you something to look forward to, a reward for your hard work.

Find reasons to say yes to yourself!
