Lose the "All or Nothing" attitude about working out & eating clean...it sets you up for failure....not success!
One thing I have learned in life is.....it isn't only just BLACK and WHITE, GOOD or BAD, ALL or NOTHING. As a health & fitness professional for over 18 years, I am here to teach you that there IS a MIDDLE GROUND (aka Moderation!) that we must learn to accept, and strive to reach. No one has perfect days or weeks when it comes to weight loss and getting more fit. Everyone slips at times...its life. And life can get in the way of the most determined person. If you have a bad day eating or not working out, remember, every day you get a new chance to do damage control. What a lot of people do, is say "well, i had a bad day...ate too much, drank too much, i failed." So they continue this mind-set for the weekend. Then they say "well, i blew it this weekend" then it extends to a week, after week....believing that if you don't achieve 100% perfection every day, you might as well throw in the towel. This "all or nothing" extreme mind set sets you up for failure. Remember...ITS NOT ABOUT BEING PERFECT, ITS ABOUT MAKING A SLOW LIFESTYLE CHANGE! Just as life has its ups and downs and roller coasters....somewhere, we have to find BALANCE. Its the same with fitness and weight loss. If you have a bad day, weekend or week, get back up, dust yourself off, and FORGET it and MOVE ON!!!!! Every day you get a do over, every MEAL or workout you get a do over. Redemption is there for you everyday! USE IT! Doing this damage control and hitting the "reset" button in your mind is THE KEY TO LIFELONG FITNESS AND WEIGHT MANAGEMENT SUCCESS! CONSISTENCY AND MODERATION WILL ALWAYS WIN OVER THE ALL OR NOTHING ATTITUDE! So set yourself up for SUCCESS!!! One day at at time....and if you have a bad day...that is ALL IT IS!! Get back on the wagon the very next day and keep moving forward!
