It’s frustrating when you miss a workout; either due to injury or just a long, stressful, day at work. You tend to want to throw in the towel. I have had a killer workout planned for the following morning, and then been awoken by my sick child who keeps me up all night. This is called LIFE! Luckily, we have one more trick to pull out, making solid nutrition choices. It’s powerful and 80% of reaching our goals anyway.
Sure, it’s easier said then done, but what other choice do we have? Obsess on missing your workout, turning to pity-party foods and feeling even worse the next morning. I’ve been there and trust me it’s not the most effective solution.
The moment you find yourself in a situation that doesn’t allow your regular workout, tighten up the nutrition by lowering your carbs a little and find yourself much calmer, not backsliding at all. It actually happens to me often when I travel and lose my ‘home routine’. I’m sure several of you can relate. Maybe you need to pull out a motivational magazine/picture or a clean eating recipe to help the process. When we are prepared and take the positive approach to things happening that are out of our control, it’s then we can find a bit more balance to achieving true health.
As always thanks for being apart of my journey and letting me be apart of yours!
