“Sometimes you have to dive in head first” – Admiral McRaven

Although I’m sure a lot of people have said this before, to me it is most memorable coming from Admiral William McRaven, Navy SEAL, in his UT commencement speech. With regards to health, fitness, and weight loss, so many people don’t know where to start, so they never do. They spend so much time trying to find the best diet plans and exercises that they never begin to achieve their health goals. To live a healthy life you do need to learn some basic skills such as how to prepare healthy food and keep good form on workouts, but these will be learned over time. If you are just starting out, I believe¬†it is most important to dive head first into the deep end and begin exercising using your current skills. Get your workouts in, and learn as you go. Never procrastinate and keep the momentum up.
