100% ON Plan 80% of the time

Friday, March 22, 2013

So, a fellow Sparker said this to me today and it really hit home. Who is really 100% on plan 100% of the time?? No one. Why beat yourself up over a little slip? My goal is to be 100% on plan 80% of the time from here on out.

What does that mean in a week? That I need to be on plan 5.6 days/week (aim for 7, be happy with 6). This means if I lose weight 8/10 weeks, I'm going great!

I'm down to that last 10 pounds (maybe 11-12, we'll see when I get there)... and have been annoyed at being stuck for so long. But I'm moving in the right direction again this week and happy about it. I have been 100% on plan more than 80% this week (off 2 dinners... so that's what? about 90% - that's good!). I've run more than I did the entire month of February, so I'm back on the wagon and happy about it.

Who else can commit to being 100% on plan 80% of the time? Let's give it 10 weeks - from now until the end of May - let's be 100% on 80% of the time! emoticon

    Love it! That's exactly what I need to do. I find that if I go overboard one meal or one day it sets me into a downward spiral. I need to learn that I will not always be perfect and that it doesn't mean I have to give up altogether.

    Sounds like a good philosophy....like a famous Prussian general said, "No plan survives first contact with the enemy"

I'm with you....our overall trend line should be positive...plan for setback, plan to overcome the setbacks too!

    Congratulations!
I do the 90/10 plan...
Flexibility is freedom, it reminds the body that not everything is run on a strict, unforgiving, straight line so your body is more willing to "play" when you give it a little bit of a different spice every now and then, with moderation (Of course).

Keep going, I think you're doing great.
