I’ve failed miserably this week in completing my “no snacking at night” mission. I made the mistake of weighing myself mid-week to see if my weight had gone down and when it showed a gain of 2 lbs, I spiraled downwards somehow into just giving in and having all the snacks I wanted, because “what good would it do anyway”? I KNOW better – that I should never think this way because it is simply not true. In order to be successful at fat loss /weight loss as well as an increase in muscle size, PATIENCE is needed. A regimen needs to be stuck to for a long period of time, and as soon as you adapt to the “Lose 14 lbs in 4 days” type of mentality, you know you are in trouble. So with this in mind, I’m designing a new menu for next week where I will be more strict and going back to square one and not allowing myself little snacks here and there. For now, I will need an “all or nothing” attitude, although I am approaching that method with caution as well. In the mean time, here is a sentence that really hit home and that I will be thinking of all this week (as well as my newly posted photos of Ava Cowan and Pauline Nordin on my fridge!!)
“We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.” – Jim Rohn
Wishing you a sunny and fit upcoming week!!
