One of the best things to help me finish off the year strong is this program right here. I did a mistake and I started a program and got lazy. How can you do that? Well its very simple. I picked a program which you probably saw called “BODY BEAST” and I absolutely loved it. There was only one problem, I got lazy with my nutrition. I felt like I knew what I was doing and it wasn’t following the meal plan, in fact it was the opposite I wasn’t eating enough and then after supper I would be hungry and the cravings would kick in and voila, junk food city would open the door and let itself in. Sneaky buggers I say! I also tried to fool myself and believe that the scale was showing my actual weight gain. But I thought to myself, oh that’s because I’m lifting heavier weights and muscle weighs more than fat. Yes it does, but that only works when your eating a proper meal plan and not junk food. lol. So the next step was that my clothes weren’t fitting right either. and that my friends is a dead give away.
I started feeling like a failure, because it was my own doing. My own mind making excuses and playing tricks by saying “It’s Ok, one treat won’t affect it” well one treat lead to many more. I knew I had to snap out of it, so thankfully this came around and it’s bigger brother” 80 Day Obsession” is soon to follow. It certainly couldn’t come at a better time. I was starting to go down a path I really didn’t like, but it’s one of those things that is very difficult to break out of once you start.
I have discovered one thing about myself. I definitely need routine and I need someone to tell me what it is I need to be doing as far as my meal plan and my fitness. Otherwise I end up ” squirrelling” it, which doesn’t not end up well. This program has a meal plan and a very good one indeed, as well as a callender to show me what workouts for what day. The best part is that it’s a training or preparation for the Bigger brother in January. I know what I need to do, and this my friends will definitely be the Golden egg. How fantastic is that. Not all is lost, yes I’ve fallen off the horse, but I have support and help to get back on that horse and win the race!!
I will be doing my meal prepping, I won’t be going crazy while I’m at my daughters for Christmas, and best of all I will get back to my weight I need to be when I felt amazing and energized. Those containers saved me and I’m using them to their best potential. I’ve come this far I’m not giving up now! Besides isn’t it so much better to start the journey before everyone else decides on NEW YEARS EVE, they want to start and then you’ve already beaten it to the punch. Plus you’ll be that much more prepared come January when the big boy is in town, not sluggish and feeling out of breath or bloated. You’ll already be noticing a difference. So if you can take anything from my sharing this story is this; Everyone has times or days that don’t go according to plan, the biggest advice I can give is this: DON’T GIVE UP!! if you fall down get back up, dust yourself off and go for it. If you haven’t started yet, “What are you waiting for?” Your time is now! I waited my whole adult life and I’m so glad I decided enough is enough. New Chapter, New Journey, New Path. Which can be you!
