Consistency Trumps Perfection Every Time


When it comes to losing weight and working out, it’s not about perfection at all. It’s about being consistent and showing up and giving it your all every single workout. Perfection doesn’t equal progress, so here’s your invitation to drop the idea that the only way to reach your health goals is to be perfect about your fitness or healthy eating routine.

Here’s Why Perfection Isn’t the Answer

Even the word perfection is enough to send most of us into a total anxious and stressed out tailspin. It puts a ton of unnecessary pressure on us in every aspect of life. And, if you’re striving for perfection in your current fitness routine, you may be doing yourself a disservice.

Why? Because chances are if you’re after that perfect workout schedule, or the perfect number of workout days per week, if you happen to have an off day, you may go down a road of serious self-sabotage by beating yourself up.

And not only that, but perfection often holds people back. We get into this mental state of thinking that if it can’t be perfect, why do it—like if we can’t hit the gym for an hour per day, then it’s not worth exercising at all.

But, when it comes down to it, twenty minutes of movement every single day can move mountains when it comes to your health and fitness goals.

Use The Power of a Consistent Fitness Routine to Help You Reach Your Goals

Here are some of our go-to hacks to make sure you are getting your sweat sesh in each day.

  1. Workout first thing in the morning or even on your lunch break if you need to find a time to squeeze it in.
  2. Set out your workout clothes the night before to set yourself up for success.
  3. Write out a consistent fitness routine schedule each week so you know what to expect.
  4. Vary your workouts so that you don’t get bored.
  5. Use the convenience of working out from home, so you eliminate the excuse of needing to get in the car to drive to the gym.
  6. Have a workout buddy so you can help keep each other accountable.


Consistency isn’t just important with fitness—it’s also just as important when it comes to your healthy eating goals. Healthy eating is truly a journey, not a final destination. It’s unrealistic to think about radically changing your diet overnight and then being perfect with every food choice.
