Imagine this RIDICULOUS scenario >>>>>>
You’re walking along the pavement, chatting away on the phone, happily. You trip and stumble and drop your phone.
When you lift it, you notice there’s a slight scratch on the perfectly functioning screen.
In a fit of anger, you smash your repeatedly off the concrete, smash, smash, smash!!!!!
(Since it was ruined).
Seems LUDICROUS right? You wouldn’t do it!!
Yet >>>> this is what we do when we binge on food or drink.
“Everything’s ruined, I might as well give up and go all out, no holds barred. Eat the fridge!!”
<<Same as smashing your slightly damaged phone>> Hope you can appreciate this.
Now, I’m not saying this analogy is gonna make you think: “You know what Kevin, you’re right! I’m gonna stop this nonsense!!”
I know this stuff in ingrained deep within your psychology – and I know, you know, it doesn’t make sense – but it’s an impulse. It’s just how you think.
But I just want to leave you with some food for thought (excuse the pun).
MESSING UP S*** HAPPENS TO EVERYONE. WE ALL GO OFF THE RAILS AT SOME STAGE.
It’s perfectly normal. You’re a unique, complicated, complex, unpredictable individual. Not a robot. Some s*** you do doesn’t make sense! Brilliant!! It’s what makes the world diverse.
But it’s how you react to these mistakes that separates success from failure.
Here’s a fact:
One poor day, sitting in front the TV popping Malteasers like they were going out of fashion, burping on full fat Coke, Doritos stuck to your dinosaur onesie, is NOT going to throw you too far off course in the grand scheme of things.
((Fat loss is a marathon, not a sprint right))
We’re talking MONTHS for PROPER results! A single day here and there is irrelevant.
**I’m gonna whisper this: It might even be GOOD for you to treat yourself to a blow out**
What WILL throw you off course is a series of consecutive days of poor nutrition.
Like deciding to smash your perfectly fine phone to smithereens.
If you can isolate those bad days, learn to think “ah well, s*** happens, I enjoyed it anyway”, I’m on the ball for the next few days …..
Make your nutrition and exercise as close to perfect as you can make it:
There’s nothing to worry about! Keep that in mind.
Hope that adds value,
