I plan everything for the week..when I will work out, what I will eat, and more importantly when I will most likely overindulge because of a celebration, a party etc. I exercise extra that day and eat a smaller lunch.
This strategy keeps me from feeling deprived, decreases my chances of getting derailed and allows me to still participate in social events I enjoy.
I almost derailed myself until I turned and told my "PERFECT WOMAN" to take a hike and don't ever come back into my life again!213
