The Blown Tire Mental Image
The weekend is coming up where things can get out of hand so normally I give you my official boot camp plan for the weekend, but I want to try something new. Here is a little mental tool I learned from a famous fitness pro named Rachael Cosgrove. I want you to picture yourself happily driving down the road, letting your mind wander, you fixate on that dreamboat Al Roker as always, then all off the sudden you hit a curb REALLY hard. You get out to inspect your care and you find out you popped a tire. Your next move? You go around to the rest if the car and pop every single tire. Why? Because you screwed up! What? You wouldn't do that? Well let me ask you this, have you ever been doing really good on a nutrition program, have a slip up, and then just go NUTS on a binge? I have, so I know what it's like. Well I already blew it with the pizza on Friday, might as well drink a party ball of Budweiser and eat a dozen donuts. Weren't those things called party balls back in the day? Who knows, the point is to not blow it all based on one slip up! Build some cheats into your plan, practice portion control, eat healthier every day, and stop beating yourself up about food. We all make mistakes, many of you have seen my mullet pictures. I have been forgiven by society for that atrocity, so surely you can forgive yourself for having a little pizza.
