The weekend is here, so things can get out of hand. I normally give you my official Huntsville Adventure Boot Camp plan for the weekend, but I want to try something else. Here is a little mental tool I learned from a famous fitness pro named Rachael Cosgrove. If you can't tell be reading it this is her concept and my words. Didn't want you thinking she is a crazy person.
I want you to picture yourself happily driving down the road, letting your mind wander, fixating on that dream boat Al Roker as always, when all off the sudden you hit a curb REALLY hard. You get out to inspect your car and you find out you popped a tire. Your next move? You go around to the rest of 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 or exercise program, have a slip up, and then just go NUTS on a binge or go completely sedentary?
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, just go for a walk, show up at an exercise class, eat healthier every day, just do something to get you back in the groove.
The main thing is to stop beating yourself up about food. We all make mistakes, many of you have seen my mullet pictures and Antoine Dodson impression . I have been forgiven by society for those atrocities, so surely you can forgive yourself for having a little pizza.
