The Art of Saying “NO”

OK, you’re all set, week one is down, and you’re rocking. You’re working out 4 times/week you got your groceries. Your meal prep game is on point, and you feel good. Then you get the phone call… “Hey don’t forget it’s my birthday tonight and you promised you’re coming.” We are all familiar with these scenarios. If not, here are a few quotes that may sound familiar. “You can drink that, or you can eat that it’s only one.” “One drink is not going to kill you” or the biggest one “C’ mon you’re ruining the fun.”

So let’s have fun with a little math. If you have more than one friend, family member, or work event. IT WILL NEVER BE JUST ONE. Now I’m not saying to bore yourself to death and never have fun but how about you choose when you engage and don’t let anyone else determine that for you. Let’s make it simple when you make your fitness plan, factor in times to “cheat” and if the event doesn’t fall in line then here are a few cool ways to say “NO” that may help.

  1. “NO” (Don’t elaborate. Don’t justify. Don’t discuss.)
  2. “I’m on a cleanse.”
  3. Sorry, that really doesn’t agree with me. I won’t feel good
To Eat or Not to Eat!

To Eat or Not to Eat!

Ok so let’s start by saying, I promise you won’t die if you don’t eat for a few hours. Unless you have a medical condition that requires eating, I promise you won’t die if you don’t eat for 24 hours. We oftentimes eat junk food because there is nothing else around and we hear the proverbial mother screaming that we need to eat!! I am not saying to starve yourself. I’m merely stating if there’s nothing nutritious around then just don’t eat until you can get something healthy.

Example: The last time you ate was the day before, and you had to rush to work, and all that’s available are candy bars and donuts – WAIT TO EAT.

You didn’t get a chance to eat breakfast, it’s lunchtime and the only option at the moment is McDonald’s – WAIT TO EAT.

Now I know that it can be tough and frustrating and mess with your energy. My suggestion for anyone who is able is to first train your body to function by fasting periodically for at least one day or two. Fasting will help you to get a better understanding of your body and your hunger.
