Sometimes we are too quick to abandon out plans,skip workouts,miss walks or bail on our plans because of one slip up. I did this in a bad way after my wife was hurt. I had my wife's family members bringing us food several times a week. Pans of Brownies,scalloped potatoes,Mac'n Cheese,cakes. My BIL works for Frito Lay and we had two boxes of chips,Doritoes,beef jerky and various snacks. Our waiting room family (People who had family members in ICU) ordered pizzas and other fast food. My time was spent between taking care of my boys ,work ( got some time off,but being a new employee, not much) and visiting my wife. I had very little time and it was easy to bail.
In 2012,my best year, I over-indulged a few times,( Birthday parties social gatherings etc,etc) I still managed to lose weight,workout and was still motivated. I did not penalize myself for slipping up and neither should you.
This process is hard, I won't lie and some of you already know this. But it can be done. I like to take time to sit and think about what I am doing weight and workout wise and attack. I will not punish myself .
I will explain my "Fat Ninja" moniker in a blog in the future. If you are in the midst of the snowstorm and the extreme freezing temperatures,please be safe.
