We encounter challenges in our lives every day. It varies by difficulty, and we are forced to think by ourselves to solve it.
Most of our problems come from external sources, but sometimes there are also problems that arise from within ourselves.
Hence, it’s important that we know how to handle them properly.
You wake up early, all pumped up! You’ve cooked and prepared your lunch before you leave for work.
You leave the food to rest in the kitchen to cool. Your teenage son gets up. You take a shower.
20 mins later you finish up and head downstairs.
Walk into the kitchen.
Where’s the food???
You look in the fridge, the oven, it’s nowhere. What the hell??
HE ATE IT!
Now in this situation, the common and most expected reaction would be to grunt and let out all sorts of noises & perhaps a few words out of frustration. Of course! Since you didn’t even get to taste any of the fruits of your labor.
Now, for the next steps, you may wallow in self-pity, let everyone in the house know how angry you are, and perhaps even start a fight with your son or…You can just forget about it and accept that shit happens. Address it and move on!
It’s a part of life and there isn’t anything you can do about it. It’s just up to you whether you want to let this problem wreak havoc on your life even more. You simply keep lunch quick by grabbing 2 tins of tuna, a handful of cherry tomatoes, lettuces, and a few almonds, and carry on with your day!
Your sister’s birthday is coming in three days, and your best friend just can’t stop talking about how exciting her wedding’s going to be next week and oh, you have a company outing the day after it as well.
In short, a lot of celebrations are in line for you and you know what it means right? Yes, your diet will be “off” for about two weeks. Nothing bad will happen…right?
That’s what we’d like to tell you, but we all know that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Celebrations are unavoidable and it’s not like we can refuse the delicious food offered to us at these events and this leads to many problems such as bouncing back to our previous unhealthy weights.
Planning ahead of an event also helps a lot. You need to decide for yourself whether you’ll indulge in all of the drinks and food offered. Be on point on all days with your food and your exercise the days that you don’t have celebrations.
The next day just gets up and continue on with your normal and regular eating and exercise plan. No compensations, no restrictions, nothing.
Simple common sense right?
You wake up early on a Monday morning to get ready for work just like any other day. However, this time you’ve decided that you won’t partake in lunch made by the fast-food restaurants around your office.
You go to work excited because starting from today you won’t have to eat any of those fast-food junk anymore as you’ve brought your own food.
Lunchtime arrives, and as you open your bag you realize…you’ve left your lunch at home!
Some perspective: Is this ONE meal in one day in the rest of your life going to derail your progress?
You can honestly do one of two things here. You can either start sulking and throwing a temper tantrum about how terrible and ruined your day now is. This will certainly let you release some steam, but it won’t solve your problem now, will it?
The other and better thing to do now would be accepting it and letting go. Who knows, you might still be able to eat the food you prepared at home by dinner after reheating it and just have a sandwich for lunch.
Every day we get plagued by many different things that take away our physical and mental energy. How we deal with it depends a lot on our emotions and how well we’ve trained ourselves. Most of the time though, we can’t help but fall victim to our own emotions affecting our decisions.
We know just how hard it is for us ladies to make decisions especially when it comes to food and dieting. That is why I’ve created some programs to help you!
Everyone could always use a helping hand and that is why I’m here!
