Coming off a long Holiday weekend can be tough.
If you did a little (or a lot!) of eating and drinking for the last 4-5 days, you may find it a challenge to get back on track.
And not only to get back on track, but then stay on track.
One thing you CAN do to help yourself maintain focus and not get led into making bad food choices is to…
Create an environment where it’s harder or nearly impossible to make bad choices.
I fell onto this years ago when I’d do a nutrition coaching session.
My new client and I would go over the 100 BEST Foods You Can Eat list, and over their individualized grocery list.
I would tell them “The key to this is to go to the store and buy everything you need for the upcoming week, and nothing else”.
“Because if you go to the store and make great choices and also buy things NOT on the list you’re going to eat those too.”
“So don’t buy it!”
That’s the beauty of the “Don’t Buy it” Diet.
If you buy it you’ll eat it, and if you don’t it makes it harder to get to.
This helps you break the habit of going for those bad food choices, when you have more control over your environment.
So the bottom line is if you’ve got junk food in the house you’re going to eat it.
So, if you don’t want to eat it, get it out of your house.
Otherwise accept the fact you’re going to eat it eventually.
That’s how even the best diets go bad.
Bad choices, that were too easy to make.
So help yourself stay on track this week. Go home and clean out the pantry and refrigerator of any junk food you know isn’t moving you to your goals.
(This will be harder when you live with other people but it is possible to section off an area just for you.)
This requires some will power initially but it makes your day a lot easier down the road.
And then only buy healthy foods that are going to help you toward your goals.
Setting yourself up for success, by controlling your environment is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
Now you only have to take action..
It CAN Be done and YOU can do it!
