You got the manatee! The manatee represents the maintenance stage of change. Congratulations, you made the commitment to start adding regular movement into your life! Now that you started, you are working to maintain that progress. It is important to know that this maintenance process might last for a few months, for years, or for the rest of your life. You are making adjustments to your original plan when your life/schedule changes. You might not always be able to keep up with an exercise routine or you could get bored with the original activities you planned out. But it’s important to know that these adjustments are part of the process. Know that relapse can happen in this stage and that does not mean you failed - sometimes it is just a part of the journey and that is okay! For the most success, surround yourself with a support system!
