|Reward yourself with this.....|
What does this have to do with your fitness? Simple. Stop making food a reward. Make it to the gym 3 days this week? No, calling Pizza Hut is NOT the way to celebrate your success. Yet so many people fall into this trap. What starts out as a cheat meal soon becomes a cheat day and then becomes a cheat weekend and next thing you know you're shocked that your pants still fit exactly the same.
I chose 3 weeks because I can't afford to shop Lulu every 7 days, but you can pick smaller items so that you can reward yourself weekly. Want the new Nicholas Sparks novel? Ugh, first, get some taste, but then, hey! Can't have it til you eat protein with every meal from Monday to Friday. Dying to download Adele's new album? Go to spin class 3 times and it's yours. You're still working towards a happy weekend treat only this one isn't going to leave you bloated and craving even more salt and sugar come Monday.
Try it out and give yourself a weekly fitness Christmas only without the stress and obnoxious relatives!
