Some people who have been working out regularly for months or even years are still out of shape because the number of cheat days they have in a week exceeds six.
~In motivating people, YOU've got to engage their minds and their hearts. I motivate people, I hope, by example - and perhaps by excitement, by having productive ideas to make others feel involved~
