Fast- Get Out!

Today my brain is playing head games with me. As I near the goal line with my last 6.5 pounds to go, food is dominating my thoughts. My focus is being challenged because the scale is doing a little dance again. Forward- back -forward -back. Just a one pound waltz, but that’s enough to get me antsy.


Over the weekend, I wasn’t feeling well and I had to deviate from my nutrition/exercise plan a little in order to soothe my nerves and my stomach. I momentarily wanted to have a pity party & a feast too. While my program does subscribe to the 90/10 rule: 90 percent of the time clean eating with 10 percent deviation allowed -my more immediate desire is to hit my mark sooner than later.  Even so- I was off a bit, but got right back in the game Sunday.


Today, Monday, I’m on focus, I’m constantly redirecting my thoughts from what treats can I sneak, to thinking positive thoughts like…I’m so close.”  Me: “Its only food, I can have a cheat day soon enough, but not now, I want a new size, more energy, summer bikini.”

However – It’s still one of those days.  Im not even hungry- just impatient and frustrated.
SO I’ll just get out of the kitchen fast, occupy my mind with other stuff and gulp water.  Yeah, I think I’ll do lemon water. When I’m back in the kitchen preparing dinner I’ll chop some veggies and do something different; I’ll stir fry veggies with steak strips.  That sounds good.  I’ve been doing a lot of salmon and chicken, but after this mornings Cardio Fix I’m craving steak, it’s on the list, I just have to measure protein with the red container.  No problem.  I’m feeling better already.

Let’s stay the course even when we encounter that mental soft spot.
