Yoooooo! What’s up?
Tim again, and this week I’d like to talk to you about something that comes up with my clients fairly regularly in the early stages of their journey with Body Shape Fitness Camp.
It’s something that can be easily fixed, and shouldn’t be allowed to be detrimental to your results. So basically I saw this meme once, and it really resonated with me.
Now take from it what you will, but my take on it is that during the week when I wake up I have a routine and regime, I wake up at the same time, I run my day in a very structured way. I eat the right foods at the right time, drink plenty of water and everything just fits.
Then the weekend hits you and things go out of the window, you’re here, there and everywhere, eating on the move, you lose track of what you’re taking on board and can easily eat WAAAAY too much food and you don’t even realise that you’ve had that Latte, packed sandwich or chocolate bar.
So all week I have pushed hard, got my body in the right place to get amazing results, and then at my ‘weak end’ I have undone so much of it by letting my guard down. The goal is not to totally restrict yourself, it is important to maintain a level of awareness, so ask yourself the following question ‘Do I need to do it ALL weekend?’ and the answer to that is NO!
I do very well by having a low calorie yoghurt breakfast, if I’m out for lunch with friends or family I try to pick the chicken option from the menu, and then in the evening if I fancy a couple of alcoholic drinks I know I can do that, or maybe have a dessert at an evening meal.
This isn’t a big problem, but if I do all of these things ALL weekend there’s no balance, if I keep on doing this I’ll never keep my body in shape.
So my message is DON’T let the weekend be YOUR weak end, plan a little control and structure into your weekend, have your 10% treats, that’s never going to undo all of your hard work. Just be sure to drink water, and find those easy healthy swaps that won’t ruin your weekend, or the work you did all week before it!
