Take this on board first of all: there is nothing wrong with your training program. The problem is really much more about the fact that you are probably giving up on your exercise long before you get to the point where you should start seeing benefits. There are many articles on things you can do to change this, but here we're going to look at one of the most important of all: quitting something else that you are doing regularly and that is taking up your time.
It has almost become inevitable, accepted even, that new years resolutions are destined to fail. There’s never much longevity in them and people are pretty blaze about it when they don’t last. It’s expected really. With ‘goals’ on the other hand, our attitudes are a little bit different. This is why I prefer to set intentions and make goals, not resolutions.
Are you really truly committed to your goal or are you just interested in achieving your dream? In case you didn't know it there is a big difference between the two.
