Ok so here is something I guess I really don’t have an answer for… Sabotaging your goal! Its something I’ve done so many times in my life when it comes to weight loss. You see next week is my 43rd birthday and I really wanted to be in better shape then I am now and I was on my way to getting there. But then I get close and I make excuses… “Well I have lost a lot of weight and I am in really good shape so I can just eat one HoHo this time” Fast forward to a weeks worth of HoHo’s… I’m using HoHo’s as an example I really haven’t had one in a year. But I did just return from London where I must have eaten 4000 calories a day!! UGH Why?? I knew that my birthday was coming and I had wanted to do a photo shoot… Fish and Chips 3 times was not really necessary! I used being on a vacation as an excuse to binge eat bad food. It always happens just before or just after a goal… Like “if I lose 20lbs I’ll have cheesecake as a reward” then poof fat is back cause I end up using excuse everyday. How about life change is my reward… I slipped and went back to something I shouldn’t have… no not poor eating… timeline weight goal setting with bad food as a reward. Setting my birthday as a goal was an old trap, and I fell in!
Well I caught it this time and I will not let it ruin my hard work… I landed at midnight from the UK and at 10am I was in the gym with my trainer and tonight on my flight to Florida and through out the day CLEAN eating! I will still take a pic on my birthday and show you all my progress. But from now on I’m losing weight for life change not for a single day! 43and fat free is for the whole year not just the day I turn 43.
