Dieting Is Like Sailing Over A Very Rough Sea…

I have just finished writing my post for this weeks check-in that will be going up on Insta this evening and I thought I’d continue to write in here about my week.

It’s probably more as a message to myself but I’m sure there’ll be a few people out there that are feeling the same and hopefully it will help.

So I am sat here now thinking that the week I’ve just had, diet wise, was a disaster.

For the last couple of days I’ve not tracked my food and when I don’t the little fat kid inside me raises it’s little head and I eat.

Probably only a thousand maybe 2 over my calorie goal but still over.

But this has only actually been in the last couple of days but it can quickly fill your head with the thoughts that your whole weeks efforts have been wasted right?

My brain had forgotten the 4 days at the start of the week I nailed my calories, the 5 workouts I busted my ass to this week and the 60k+ steps I’ve put in this week whether it was walking back from the gym or walking the dog.

It’s easy to concentrate on the ‘bad’ stuff you’ve done but don’t forget about the good.

We’re all human and sometimes we slip up but by focusing on the bad means that we end up in this spiral of negative thoughts and this is where a lot of people QUIT.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Now I can tell you without any doubt that quitting is the only way you can actually fail at your fitness journey.

You see it’s not a plain sailing.

Often it feels like we’re on a small dingy sailing across a massive ocean through the middle of a hurricane.

Often making it a few metres forward before we’re blown back twice as far.

​​​​​​​​​But as long as you keep rowing your little arms off in the right direction you’ll make it I promise.

So don’t get down about a few little treats you had this weekend.

Or the blowout you had at a meal out.

Don’t let your diet taint those great memories.

Instead learn from it, adapt, create a new strategy and next week let’s hit it again!

I know each and every person reading this can ​​​​​​​​​​achieve their goals. I believe in you.

Your coach,
