6-8 weeks ago, I was stuffing my face full of crap. Anything I wanted to eat, I just gave in to eating. Frozen Yogurt, candy, tons of breads and pastries. Yeah I still was eating good stuff, but the bad stuff hadn’t just trickled back into my life, it flooded in with Biblical proportions.
I knew that I had several things coming up that I wanted to look good for (can you say Hawaii!) but I kept telling myself that I had plenty of time to work on my body and physique and that I’d start eating right…yep, you guessed it…TOMORROW!
I was trapped in the negative momentum of making poor eating choices…
Then a switch in my brain flicked and now I’m trapped on the other side of the pendulum.
For the past month at least I’ve been a clean eating machine. No more frozen yogurt, candy, breads and pastries. I’ve ONLY (literally) been eating good stuff. I haven’t had more than a bite of processed grain products at a time. I’ve been eating my veggies and proteins (not the typical high fatty proteins either, just the good lean ones). I’ve been drinking my recovery shakes after workouts, and hitting the gym and running hard.
I’m firmly entrenched in the positive momentum of making awesome eating choices and I couldn’t be happier. I’m feeling strong (except for my bum shoulder thank you kipping pullups!) and way less bloated. I’m sleeping very well and have tons of energy. Things are great.
But here’s the point. Momentum is momentum; it’s not good or bad. The momentum that keeps you stuck in the rut of making poor food and exercise choices is the same momentum that helps you stay on plan.
YOU GET TO CHOOSE WHICH SIDE OF THE PENDULUM TO GET STUCK ON.
Now go make the right choice!
