Just so everyone knows I am far from a beast. I love going into beast mode and getting into a groove but those stretches seem far and few between these days. I’ve been struggling to find that span of beast mode since the holidays. I didn’t do bad over the holidays, and those “extras” are gone now but I love my cheat meals which sometimes turn into cheat days as in plural as in they continue far beyond what they are suppose to. Why does the bad stuff have to taste so good? That’s not saying that all the healthy stuff doesn’t taste good, because it does! OMG.. it does and I love eating healthy and clean. I’m not quite sure what the attraction of “bad” food is. I know for me this week it’s pure laziness. I’m tired from working my 9-5:30’er and all that goes along with being a single mom. I chose to do nothing this past weekend, which I definitely needed the down time, but it’s true what they say…. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. So why the Burrito guilt. Well Monday I literally walked in the door and went straight to bed. I was hungry but to tired to care. The kids were out and I just laid there watching Netflix. When I finally decided to get up their left over burrito, chicken quesadilla, and re-fried beans and rice were oh so nicely sitting on the counter. 45 seconds later I was eating a hot oh so delicious meal, without any quilt at that moment. The guilty creeped in the next morning when I was feeling sluggish and dragging myself out of bed to do my workout. That’s the down side to too many cheat meals, you definitely feel it. Once your body is use to you eating all that healthy good stuff it kinda goes into shut down mode when you fill it with the not so good stuff. Once I reached the ab challenge I was really feeling bad because getting my six pack to pop is one of my long time goals and all I could see was burrito instead of abs.. But I move on, I did my work out, try to make better food choices the rest of this week. I did a little food prep last night so I’d have quick healthy choices in the fridge.
So how do I move on from the burrito guilt? Well I am planning my next challenge group. We all are going to be doing the 21 day fix. It’s a 21 day program that teaches portion control, how to eat the right amounts of proteins, fats, veggies, fruits etc and comes with an amazing 30 minute work out. I have been hearing some great results from those who are already doing it. It’s 21 days that’s 3 weeks, I think I see beast mode in my near future. If you’d like to join us let me know.
And in the meantime, I’ll get up everyday and press play, and I’ll make healthy food choices and when I don’t I wont beat myself up, I’ll just move on. Life’s to short to not eat a good burrito every once in awhile!!!
