Sunday’s are often chilled out days with lots of reflection. - Many reflect on the weeks activity and food intake and think things of time they were “on” or “off their diet. - Unless you are someone who fades or goes the periods of not eating there is no being on or off your diet. - Take home message, don’t give yourself a hard time for the things you eat. Focus on positives and simply strive to make changes that will bring you closer to your goals.
To be successful in a health or weight loss goal, you have to enjoy the process. - Your diet should enrich your life making you healthier AND happier. - If one of those is missing, you will likely run into trouble.
While every health or weight loss goal needs to be flexible. - You also need a degree of focus. - More focus on the quantities and foods going in, and more focus on the amount of movement and energy you are using.
Trigger foods, comfort foods, whatever you want to call them, everyone has one...or a few. - The ones that once you pick them up, they are not going back down until you’ve licked the container clean. - These are the only foods (other than food intolerances) in your diet that should be potentially (in the short term) omitted from your diet. - This is purely to learn (hopefully) to be more in control if you do introduce it back in to your diet.
What is your goal, and more importantly, why do you have that goal? - An effective tool is to reverse engineer back from you goal to find out why you have that goal. - Example: Goal: lose 5kgs Reverse Engineer: why am I in the position that I need to lose 5kg? - If you correct the underlying problem, the goal will be much easier to achieve and sustain.
Eating well, sleeping well, exercising, and drinking water are all important, but just remember, none of us are getting out of here alive. - Make sure there’s room in you life for something tasty, a reason to stay up late once in a while, a reason to skip the odd exercise session, and times where you drink something with bubbles. - Don’t forget to enjoy life!
