& I can't get up!
You've gone CRAZY TRAIN!
Okay, so you’ve gone off track, SH*T HAPPENS! We are not perfect, as much as we all like to believe. Life happens, family happens, work happens, school happens, etc etc…
Ladies, we’ve all been there, it’s “that time” and you’ve eaten more sweets than there are in Willy Wonka’s factory.
Guys, it’s football season, we get it, wings and beer.
DON’T STRESS! We all fall off track. There is no reason to stay derailed!
One thing we stress here at fitBITE is that YOU are creating a healthier lifestyle, NOT A DIET. By keeping in a diet mind frame, we tend to restrict and deprive ourselves of things we naturally crave sometimes. This can lead to a build up and then POOF, we “blew it”.
How about the good ol’ saying, “I’ll start next week” or “I’ll get back to working out next Monday”. Don’t fall victim to the “I’ll start when…”!
Dust off the workout equipment and the crumbs off your shirt. LET’S GO!
So what happened exactly?
I lost motivation for everything.
Journal or Blog
Keeping track of EVERYTHING you do makes you hold yourself accountable for your actions. When you’re actually seeing what you’re doing, writing it down, it’s right there in front of you to keep you motivated!
Don’t be a negative Nancy, sorry Nancy. Pushed yourself through a tough workout? Ate an extra serving of veggies? Why not make a “gold star” chart. Pat yourself on the back, you deserve that sticker!
COMIT COMIT COMIT! You started going to the gym? Don’t quit, make it a point to keep going, even if it’s an in home workout! Been on point with your healthier eating habits? GOOD, keep going! Without consistency you won’t see the results you desire.
When it doubt, think of something that inspires you. Song, quote, a person, a goal, it can be anything, REMEMBER IT!
But I don’t want to workout.
Ohhhh, the holidays.
How to detox after that holiday meal.
Go-to foods after a binge...
yogurt, bananas, oatmeal, green tea, nuts, beans, eggs, spinach, vinegar, ginger, oranges, flaxseeds, salmon and broccoli
Final thoughts & Defining your goals
Redefine healthy eating: don’t focus on eating less, focus on eating more, wholesome, nutrient dense foods. You want that cookie? Why not plan it in for your day? Remember, 80/20!
Forgive yourself: there is no reason to stress or cry over spilt milk, SH*T happens. Focus on your motivation and what to do to make changes in your plan!
Strive for progress, not perfection: like we mentioned before, no one is perfect. Small changes go a long way and will add up. Keep going!
Learning along the way: this is a learning process, there will be slip-ups. Evaluate what went wrong, how it went wrong and why, then focus on ways to fix it
It’s a marathon, NOT a sprint: slow and steady wins the race, remember? By trying to rush your goals (either by over training or under-eating) you can do more harm than good, causing a potential crash and burn situation.
Be patient and trust the process.
