BUST A MOVE - jillian michaels speaks....

Life Is in the JourneyLife is in the journey, guys, not the destination, so do what you can and take it one day at a time. Go slow; do it right; make it permanent — then help out others who are where you were. I'm so psyched to have a great example of one member doing just that! Read on and get inspired:

"I've found that if I don't set goals and write them down, I lose sight of what I'm working for. Goal setting makes you more accountable to yourself. Short-term goals will boost your confidence, as well as help you achieve your long-term goals.

I always try to remember that when anything is being built — whether it's a house or a better body — it starts with a solid, firm foundation, and that's what I'm trying to create. My short-term goals include working out three times each week, eating a healthy meal once each day, walking an extra five minutes today. My long-term goals are usually stuff like: lose X pounds, or run/walk X miles without stopping.

If I mess up and, say, eat a tub of Ben and Jerry's ice cream (oh, Ben and Jerry are evil people!), I acknowledge that I'm not perfect. I might revise my short-term goals to include: Don't walk down the ice cream aisle at the grocery store. And then I get back on track and move on.
Remember, success starts with a thought that is then turned into words. And the words are turned into action. So go get those goals written down and start achieving your success!"
