STAYING FOCUSED: Mindset
Sometimes it’s hard to stay focused. Life has a bit of a habit of throwing curve balls that knock you off your plan. When it comes to fat loss, this seems to happen a lot.
For example you start your diet, then you realize there is a birthday party and there will be alcohol, cake, non-nutritious foods present, and you think great I’ve just started my diet!
So what do you do? Let me tell you what you do.
Don’t panic about it.
Yes that’s what I said don’t panic about it. Look there is never a good time to start a diet, things will always come up.
Trying to be good, and resisting is great, if you have amazing will power that’s fantastic and you’re also a very lucky person. For most people however they will struggle.
The best advice I can give you, no, the most realistic advice I can give you is this, when you decide to diet, make a lifestyle change etc…
the 80/20 rule
This means 80% of the time give the body what it needs, water, protein, lots of greens, good carbs, fats. Then 20% of the time have what you want (that does not mean a free for all) 80% of awesomeness will result in a positive outcome.
So next time the curve ball comes, just think:
“my body is full of good nutrition, it’s functioning optimally and I know this because I give it what it needs”
You will find that eating a little of what you want, will not feel so bad and achieving your goals will feel much more achievable.
REMEMBER LOOK AFTER YOUR BODY. IT’S THE GREATEST THING YOU WILL EVER OWN!!!!!
