How many times has this happened to you? You had your day planned – you were going to eat well at every meal and go to the gym in the latter part of the day for a strength training workout.
But somewhere along the way, things didn’t go as planned. Maybe you chose a dough-nut instead of a homemade smoothie or oatmeal french-toast cake for breakfast. Or maybe someone bought pizza for lunch at the office so you ate that instead of your prepared lunch.
Or maybe something happened last minute and you couldn’t make it to the gym for your workout.
Okay, maybe those exact things didn’t happen, but I know you’ve had days where things just didn’t go as planned. You didn’t eat as well as you wanted to, your workout sucked and you weren’t able to improve your performance, or maybe you had to skip your workout all together. Heck, maybe you didn’t have the motivation to do those things and chose instead to veg out on the couch.
Bottom line – things don’t always go as planned. Sometimes we get off track either by choice, or by circumstance.
