For me I’m not a big Monday fan. In fact it hits hump day on my tracker. Just to make it a little more unlikable. There is a reason to like Mondays.
- It’s back to routine, I find it easier to stay on track when I’m back to the weekdays. Mind it takes a little planning. But once you put in that but of effort on a Sunday night there is no reason why Mondays food can’t kick ass! Plus if you make good food choices you feel better. It makes every choice after that easier.
- It’s a fresh start! Take one meal at a time. Okay so you got up this morning and had an off plan breakfast. Don’t write off the day, you have 2 meals and 2 snacks that can pull you back to being on plan!
- You can choose to pick up your mood. Think positive. It’s easier jump to the negative over positive. Every time your mind slips into a bad thought, change it, think of something positive. Eventually, this will become automatic, that will mean more positive thoughts!
Make everyday a great day. For me the days I hate are Sunday’s as they are the highest chance of me falling off the wagon.
Notice your habits. I write them down, I notice patterns. When I notice them I can change them. Some times we don’t realise habits we have made. But when we know knowledge is power!
As for me, I had a really good weekend. Unfortunately that makes me scared and aware that when things are going good, I self sabotage. Telling myself, I deserve a treat for being good at the weekend. Not this week. This week my treat is the number on the scales. I have treat bites for each evening to help keep me on plan. I don’t have to use them but I have them as a safety net. I am determined to fight my bad habits and make every week better than the last!
