Thursday, March 30

I had to spend a couple of days recently working in an office and was exposed to "office life" again. I didn't like it. Sitting at a desk for just a few hours in row made me feel exhausted. And of course, there were donuts. There's always donuts. However, it made me thankful that I have my routines and lifestyle set and don't really have to think about it anymore.

When I was offered a donut my response was, "I don't eat that stuff." It's not that I don't ever eat a donut or that I wouldn't eat a donut, it's just that I don't eat donuts in the middle of the week for no reason after already eating breakfast.

Also, I don't have the mindset that I am missing out on something by not eating the donut. Notice I said I "don't" eat them, not I "can't" eat them.

If you are serious about your nutrition and want to make changes to your body, you need to be prepared to face temptation. You need to have a plan in place BEFORE you are tempted so you know what to do when it happens.

There are so many excuses available to fall off your diet. Is National Donut Day really a thing?

We're starting our nutrition group again and by far, the most important thing you can do is be consistent. That means you have to stop making excuses for the little cheats throughout the week or the big cheats on the weekend.

It's very easy to rationalize these decisions at the time. Your will power has probably been depleted and you just really don't care at the moment. Try to step back and look at the big picture. We tend to make much better decisions when looking at the long term than the short term.

Figure out what you want to accomplish and stick to it. Whether it is your nutrition or your plan to be better at a certain movement by next year's Open. Consistency will make all the difference.
