Complacency is the devil

28 Jun

I’ve decided it’s time to kick it up a notch. I’ve become complacent over the last week or so, knowing I’m so close to my goal, feeling smug and on top of the world and slightly losing sight of the bigger picture.

So, I have to make some promises this week to get myself back into fighter mode. As Xtina would say I am a fighter, fighter! And you can’t stop me!

1. Give 100% in each workout (I’m not one of those people that say the cliched “I’m gonna give 110%!!”. I’ll give my best, yes, but 110% does not exist. Sorry. It’s mathematics.)

2. Stay on top of my meals. This means lots of fresh fruit and veggies, lean protein, low GI carbs and control my portions. This is something I am already doing so this just serves as a reminder to continue to focus on nutrition.

3. Continue to recognise my successes and visualise the coming successes. Yes, what I’ve done so far is great but there’s always room for improvement!

4. Stretch! So important to re-energise and recover tired muscles.

5. No more snacking! I’m a hungry, hungry beast lately and I put that down to all the exercise I do. I only snack healthily (nuts, seeds, yoghurt or mueseli) but it’s time to take stock of what I’m putting in my mouth and cut some calories to maximise fat loss again.

I’m a work in progress. Watch this space.

      Seriously. Sometimes, I’m hungry again and I JUST ate lunch. It’s ridiculous. LOL!
