While I was training for my competition…
- I ate at regular intervals,
- no snacking in between and
- I didn’t eat till I was stuffed
- My food was portioned and
- going back for seconds was not an option.
Now post-comp, the world became a giant buffet table. I was allowed to eat as I pleased. Unrestricted. I didn’t gorge, but hey, nothing was off-limits. I ate till I was satisfied and recently noticed that I have picked up the habit of hovering in front of the pantry. Nothing appealing to me I walk away, but the problem is that I was hovering in the first place.
I need to remember my new rules and habits and not let myself forget them! If I let go, it will be a downward spiral and before I know it I will be looking in the mirror asking how I let that happen.
What I learned to tell myself: You worked so hard for those good habits! Post-comp, don’t let go altogether!
I’ll stop those sprouting bad habits in their tracks! Met with my trainer for a new nutrition game plan – here we go!
