Oops, I Did it Again!

Like Britney said, “Oops, I did it again“. I bet she didn’t think those lyrics would be headline news every time she made a mistake when she wrote that song. Although we may not all fall as publicly as her – we all fall and we all have to get back up again.

I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up (yet)

We’ve all done it. We gorge ourselves with junk. We cheat on our diet – or completely go off of it all together! We stuff ourselves so full that we walk away from the table completely disgusted with ourselves, only to do it again a few hours later.

Are we mentally retarded? Nope, we are human. We like food and we hate discipline. But sooner or later, there comes the time to say goodbye to poor eating and to start fresh and erase your “sins”.

Get Up!
Ironically, we can go weeks, and even months, spending more time regretting the damage than we do on repairing it. Quit beating yourself up. You did it. It’s over. That’s so 3 seconds ago! It’s time to move on!

Quit fretting about how fat you feel. Quit rehashing your mistakes. Instead, focus on your plan and focus on fixing what you messed up. Honestly, this is a simple fix – you just have to erase the calories.

Here’s the facts: You ate more calories than you burned so you gained weight. Now you just have to burn more calories than you eat to erase it. It’s literally that simple – checks and balances.

Get on Solid Ground
We all trip up. The actual fall (or the embarrassment of falling) and the getting up part is the hardest part. Once you get up, standing is easy – as long as you are on solid ground. Get your footing and plant yourself in a healthy environment.

Quitting regretting and start repairing!
