Well, I've had a BAD week - BAD, MY BAD!! But, now I'm all revved up after a whole weekend of a health seminar which included 5 doctors from all over the country, including South America. I just want to share one analogy that stuck me as relevant. I have so much more to share, but I have to digest it all first!
Imagine.....You are in a hurry. You are speeding. You run a red light. WeeOOO, WeeOOO, WeeOOO the siren is behind you. You get a ticket. You take off again. You are still in a hurry. You are still speeding. Are you going to run a red light again and get another ticket? Are you going to get tickets all day long?
Imagine your day...You have a healthy oatmeal breakfast. At break you take just half of a muffin. You top off a healthy lunch with a Snickers bar. Ok. You've blown your four letter word so you might as well have chocolate cake and B-B-Q ribs for dinner and start over tomorrow. (That pre-planned statement sets you up for failure.)
NO!! Before you run that 2nd red light, vow to slow down as much as possible and arrive at your destination safely. The same is true for eating patterns. We always say, "NEVER GIVE UP". Well, I'd like to add, never give up half way through a day! You have to make it to your goal, so correct your eating AS SOON AS YOU MAKE THE FIRST SLIP - DON'T GET ANOTHER TICKET! Your body is the one who will pay for that one!
