When life gets busy

on February 1, 2014

What do you do when life gets busy?  When the buzz of the holiday season finally wears off and it’s back to the “daily grind” so to speak?  Do you find yourself unable to fit in those work outs?  Do you find yourself more tempted by those sugary treats your colleague brought in to the office?

This is when I find it the hardest – the period just after Christmas/New Year/my Birthday.  During that period I always tend to wind down a little.  I’ve been happy with my work outs (I’ve actually increased those!) but my diet suffers a little.  I’ve found excuses to have that “piece of cake” or “cheeky beer”.  Overall my diet is still much better than it was a year ago.  I just need to keep up the consistency.  I know back in my post here I mentioned wanting to give IIFYM a go, and part of me still wants to do this but I need someone to explain it all a bit more to me – anyone out there able to assist?

I am currently coming to the end of Week 3 of the 12 Week Transformation Challenge and I can’t believe how quickly these 3 weeks have passed.  And with things getting busier, this is when preparation is more important than ever!  Already a quarter of the way through, and I’m not seeing the results I was hoping for as yet.  But it’s all a learning curve really…each time I’ve done a similar challenge I’ve come away with lessons learnt and have moved that step forward towards a healthier lifestyle overall.  

Tomorrow I have decided to have a day off working out and use my Sunday to prep for the coming week.  Make sure I know exactly what I am going to eat when and plan my work outs.  If next week is as busy as it was this week at work, I am going to schedule in some work outs both before and after work – that way if I get stuck back at work a couple of days my work outs don’t suffer.

Sometimes I read back over my posts and I can’t believe I’ve become so into my fitness.  I’ve become one of those people I never really understood!  But I LOVE it!  I’ve found something I really enjoy again.  I haven’t been this into something since I was 15 and was really into my karate.  I just need to find a similar passion when it comes to cooking up healthy, yummy meals… haha!

Enjoy your weekend everyone 🙂  Remember – preparation is key!!!!
