"When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on." Franklin D. Roosevelt
My sons learned this quote at karate class. When I asked them to explain it they said, "If you get mad you have to tie yourself up and not get mad." Cute.
I'm going to give you a different interpretation. As a lot of us are strength training to lose or maintain weight, it sometimes becomes frustrating because as you know muscle weighs more than fat and until your metabolism kicks in high gear and you start burning more fat you will probably not lose weight and may even gain.
So, when you get to the end of your rope (you feel like quitting because you're short on time, it's just too hard, or you're just plain sick of working so hard and not getting the results you want) tie a knot and hang on. I promise the results of being active and healthy will be worth it. This isn't a temporary fix. This is a lifestyle. If you keep working hard it will be a lifestyle that will benefit you physically, mentally, and emotionally.
I'm so proud of all of you. Keep up the good work,
