For those of you how have been reading for a while, you know I don't have a lot of patience for the touchy feely style of fitness. I don't really get yoga, nor do I believe that gluten is evil. So you can imagine how excited I was when I read the following statement on my BifG Getting Started guide:
Helpful Hint: If there is a day that you don't want or feel like working out, do it anyways. Exercise is not about how you feel that day. It is about a commitment to your long term goals.
I love the no BS approach. Me like. Me respond well.
|Tell her you don't feel like it, she'll understand|
She is attempting to lose weight...which is awesome.....but I can see certain traits that I know will thwart her efforts. Like many of my coworkers, she belongs to the gym next to the office.
|Helping you out there sweets.....|
In addition to skipping out on the daily gym visit, she also falls prey to the office sweets. Now I admit, we all are probably guilty of this but, the biggest fault is that her calorie estimates are waaaay off the mark. I notice that a lot of people lie to themselves when it comes to tracking calories. I try to be uber honest when tracking my food:
For the record, I didn't have chick peas, tomatoes, and an avocado for lunch. I had soup but I entered in the ingredients separately. When 10 almonds and 1/4 cup of almonds is 167 calories.....then dear coworker, these are more than 150 calories:
Listen sweets, when we skip a workout or underestimate the damage we do to our diet, we are the only ones that loose. I say this to you all to remind myself. Even when I don't feel like working out or eating right, I need to remember the BifG saying. It is not about today it is about where I want to be tomorrow.
Are you with me on this one sweets?
