Moderation, Moderation, Moderation!

Friday, April 26, 2013

I am what many people call a perfectionist. I used to think that meant that I did everything perfectly, but thanks to a kind professor in Bible College, I learned different. It means that I strive for perfection and when I don't achieve it I become stressed out and upset with myself. Over the years I have learned to handle this situation and the answer is always MODERATION!

In the eating realm, I have found that if I make my menu the night before of what I want to eat the next day I do better than if I do it on the actual day. Hence I am more likely to stick with the plan than if I don't.

Does that mean that I don't eat anything not on the menu for that day? No, is simply means that I have a good foundation laid. If I should have to change thing around, I immediately go to my nutrition page and adjust it out. Once I do that I count it as over and move on. This keeps me from going over my daily calorie allowance by more than about 3-5 calories.

I have also started working on my exercises the same way. I know the night before what exercises I plan to do the next day. If I should add a new one then I add it to the tracker right away.

The best way to keep your lifestyle on track is MODERATION!!!
