No matter what role you play in your day to day life, whether it be a sleep deprived student, a career driven woman, a fitness fanatic, or any combined (go you!), you can always have days where you feel a little unmotivated. Even the woman we admire or aspire to be are not always down for the count as soon as they roll out of bed (ok, maybe Blake Lively). The point is, YOU are not alone, and one word that can help us cope and push us to be the best version of ourselves is CONSISTENCY.
“Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally,
it comes from what you do consistently”
How many times have you or someone you know joined the gym just to go two or three times, then never see the four walls of the gym again? (I’m guilty, too!) Setting small goals for yourself and consistently meeting these goals is what will eventually make going to the gym (or anything in life) a routine! Here are a few women who exemplify CONSISTENCY and saw amazing results because of it.
(1) Khloe Kardashian
"My fitness journey will be a life-long journey. Fitness is not about being better than someone else... It's about being better than you used to be. I'm not where I want to be, and who knows if I ever will be. But I am healthier than ever, and due to my consistent workouts, I am slowly seeing results. Hi baby abs!! I see you!!! I hope to meet your other ab friends soon (yes, I'm talking to my muscles. I've never met most of them before)."

(2) Oprah Winfrey
“The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you’re willing to work, little by little, day by day”
So, my challenge to all you badass Healthy is Hot readers out there is to set a small goal for yourself that will help you excel in the overall goal you would like to achieve. Whether it be visiting the gym more frequently, or putting a little extra work into your school work or career, one thing is for certain… Consistency is KEY. I mean, who wouldn’t trust the wise words of Oprah Winfrey♥
