Tuesday Tip: Doing something is better than doing nothing ⭐️
One of the keys to losing weight and maintaining it is consistency, and one of the key things that help with consistency is learning not to throw in the towel and say f*ck it every time things don’t go to plan.
Life is full of unexpected obstacles. Just when you think you’ve got things under control something will happen to potentially derail you – it could be small or large obstacles – unexpected illness, stress, unplanned socialising, etc etc. You can either let it defeat you and use it as an excuse to come off the wagon completely , or you can change your mindset and accept that it’s not about being perfect every single day. It’s about doing the best you can in the circumstances – that day.
So maybe you can’t fit in your planned 45 min workout, but could you do ten mins instead? Not going to hit that step goal – could you do a 5 mins walk anyway just to get a few more steps in? Not tracking your calories like you planned – ok well can you focus on making some different choices, fill up half your plate with veggies, cut back on a the dessert or booze; unexpected fish and chips takeaway – go for a lighter option of small chips and a small piece of fish, instead of the large cod, large chips, curry sauce etc that you usually have? Had a rubbish day and ate half a packet of biscuits? Stop stressing and just make sure the next thing you eat is back on track.
Even doing something, no matter how insignificant it may seem, is better than doing nothing! At least then you can look back on the day and say – it didn’t go to plan, but it was a lot better than it could have been.
Happy Tuesday 🤗xx
