You’re following a workout plan. You workout 5 to 6 days a week.
You also have a meal plan that you follow…close to 80/20. Maybe sometimes 90/10. Maybe sometimes 70/30…
But maybe, you aren’t really following it as closely as you think.
This could be the reason you aren’t seeing any changes.
I realize this video probably comes at a RIDICULOUS time, seeing as how we leave for our honeymoon in 4 days, and I will likely be enjoying food that I love – but not over-enjoying and overeating, never overeating! I am fully prepared to deal with the consequenses that come with an all-inclusive resort, and will be back on track 100% when we get back home! 🙂
Do you really track every.single.thing you eat and drink?
I KNOW that I slack on the weekends. Sometimes I need a mental break from it. And hey – sometimes that’s okay! Our bodies can totally bounce back from a day where we really overindulged.
But the thing is – we can’t be doing it for 2, 3, 4…plus days in a row. That is when we stop seeing changes. And that is when the number on the scale goes up. Eeeek.
I totally get that it’s hard, especially during the holiday season, not to overindulge when we have multiple parties multiple weekends in a row.
Just try to REALLY stick to that 80/20. And ask yourself a couple of questions.
Did I get my workout done today? Did I really have a legit reason if I didn’t?
Am I drinking enough water?
Did I at least eat enough protein and veggies for breakfast and lunch?
Do I really want that cookie? 😉
I DO NOT believe in restriction. But if we say ‘moderation’ – we need to mean it.
We have to hold ourselves accountable if we want to see changes to get more defined muscles or lose weight. Or both!
Like I said in the video, I have maintained by being great during the week, but overindulging on the weekends for a long time. Like, over a year! But I’d like to lean out a little bit more, so I need to make better choices overall. I’ll probably still have adult beverages, but I’m going to chose to eat something healthy while I do, opposed to something that is full of empty calories and won’t actually fill me up.
