What Do You Do on Your Bad Days?

What Do You Do on Your Bad Days?

It's easy to do a great job on the good days.

On the good days, I wake up full of energy for my workout, my healthy eating, my water, and my other tasks of the day (you know, the job and the parenting and the house stuff and all the other little things I do every day.)

Other days, like today, I wake up and don't want to get out of bed. On those days, I'm on auto-pilot, doing whatever is easiest, or whatever I've planned for, without any added complications. On a day like today I'm drooping, and just following the path of least resistance.

It's easy to lose weight on the good days. But it's what you do on the bad days that really matter. Do you pick up a giant calorie bomb muffin for breakfast? Or do you have a healthy breakfast planned and at the ready, so that it's easier than the muffin? Do you get the salad at lunch, or the giant burger? Do you come home and watch TV on the couch, or do you grab your already-packed gym bag and head to the gym for a workout, even if it's a relatively easy, phoning-it-in kind of workout?

Hopefully, if you've done your homework, all the healthy behaviors are already the path of least resistance. The healthy breakfast is made, the salad is your usual order at lunch, the gym bag is already packed. And you go ahead and do those things even on the bad days.

It's the consistency, the behaviors you take on the bad days, that really determine your success.

Added bonus, the healthy behaviors might actually help your mood! I find that when I am drooping, sometimes I just need a snack (yes, eating snacks is a healthy behavior, if they are healthy snacks -- far better than starving for a few hours until dinnertime and then devouring everything in sight.) Sometimes I just need some cold water. And of course, endorphins are a wonderful reward for a workout -- although there are some days I get to the gym and really do "phone in" my workout, more often than not, once I get there, I realize I'm happy to be there and I work out hard.

So for today -- I'll do what I always do. I may not workout for quite as long or quite as hard, I may eat a few more calories, but I'm still within the range of healthy behaviors. And that consistency is worth a lot.
