Very convenient for my new plan, thank you

Very convenient for my new plan, thank you

Picture yourself happily driving down the road, letting your mind wander, and thinking about all the many things going on in your life.

That's when it happens.

Bang! 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 of course!

Why? Because you screwed up!

What? You wouldn't do that? Sounds crazy, but I bet you have done pretty much the same thing.

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, go completely sedentary, and just give up?

"Well I already blew it with the pizza on Friday, might as well drink a party ball of Budweiser and eat a dozen donuts."

 
Also, very convenient for me

Weren't those things called party balls back in the day? Seems about right.

Anyway, the point is to not blow it all based on one slip up!

Build some cheat meals into your plan, practice portion control, just go for a walk, show up at an exercise class, eat a little healthier every day, stop expecting perfection from yourself.

Do one little thing to get you back in the groove.

The main thing is to stop beating yourself up about food. Stop beating yourself up because you missed a week of working out.

Start thinking big picture. A week of "bad" eating and a week off from working out will not defeat you. You will be fine, you just need to get back to work.
