There is nothing worse than losing that momentum and falling off the wagon again. But I bet that deep down everyone knows when they are making a half assed attempt. Sorry but its true. So when you do give in to temptation you decide “oh well – might as well completely stop trying”. WRONG! You dust yourself off and keep going. So what if you gave in and had delicious slice of cake whilst meeting the girls out for coffee. That doesn’t mean that you then have Maccas for dinner and half a block of chocolate during a movie that night. You just pick it up again at the next meal and continue on. Giving up and continuing to indulge throws your body into metabolic mayhem making it harder to get back on track than it was in the first place.
Now don’t go getting all antsy in your panties! I’m still pro encouragement, positivity and all that crap 😉 HOWEVER!! Sometimes in life we all need a bit of tough love. Like the time I lost my apartment keys after a big day at the Randwick races – I started crying like a baby when I’d reached the front door and realised what had happened. I thought I’d ruined every ones night bla bla bla. Cue best friend with a bit of tough love and a brilliant idea to just call a locksmith! Genius! Within an hour we were inside and getting dressed to hit the town!
People are often under the misconception that I am super motivated ALL the time. Um wrong. Im human. I don’t like having to wake up early in the morning to train. Sometimes Id rather eat the lasagne instead of the steak and veggies. When I actually have a spare 30 minutes after putting my boy to bed, fulltime work, part time study, dealing with lawyers and accountants, writing business plans, deciding whether to purchase a gym, making dinner, getting ready for the next day and cleaning up the house I don’t always feel like writing a blog or filming or researching or designing workout programs or tweeting or instagraming before I fall into bed ready to repeat it all the next day. (Even though I seriously love you guys!) But I know that’s not going to help me get to where I want to go. Its part of my plan. And if I don’t do it now I’ll have more that needs doing tomorrow!
