Course Corrections

I've been making some good progress since the first of the year but this last week I started slacking in the nutrition department. I ate more fast food and junk than I usually do. The day before Valentines all of my coworkers brought a plate of cookies to work to share except for me. I felt so bad about not contributing and didn't want to be a party pooper so I ate a ton of dessert. In the past when I would encounter a scenario like this I would say "why bother" and revert back to my old ways of eating like a drunken sailor. Fortunately since I have a fitness blog that makes me an authority in the industry and I am an example for society. I no longer have the luxury of giving up. Little children look up to me. You should start your own fitness blog if for no other reason that it helps you work harder as you try not to be a hypocrite.

It is normal to have minor lapses so I am not going to stress over it. I have still lost 6 pounds since Christmas so it's not like I've had a major relapse. My point for today is that when you have a setback it is not such a big deal if you can get over it fast and get back on track again. So if you have lapsed into bad habits or are starting to slide on some of your resolutions and goals just make a course correction and start over and get moving in the right direction again. You can do it!
