First off, I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving! Life is a blessing and we have to celebrate and appreciate that. Now it is time to get back on the Wagon as quick as possible. I challenged all of my clients to find their ‘Vice’ Some food that they just can’t get enough of and cut it out for 7 days. I will even put mine out there…Twizzlers… I do not have to ability to set a bag of Twizzlers in front of me and just eat one. That is an example of mine what is yours? We had a Client the other day who said hers is choclate chips. She cut them out for two days and already notices a difference. What is yours? 7 days seems like a short time and your vice may not seem like a big deal. Even if you just have a little bit of this, and you eat healthy and you work out, it slows you down more than you know. I gave an analogy the other day that hopefully brings this to light.
Imagine a traffic jam. And you are sitting there wondering “what in the world happened?” was it an accident? a huge crash? You get up to the choke point and you find out that there was a baby sitting in the road so it stopped traffic. Now imagine that there is a huge 18 wheeler in the road….
Temporarily, these two subjects have the same affect (even though one is bigger and the other smaller). Think about how profound that is? So if you are just having an extra glass of wine per night, or you are eating chips all the time, but you are working hard for results, you are slowing your progress more than you know. So cut it out for 7 days and see what happens.
