Post Photoshoot Blues

You’ve been on a holiday right?

Had a great time,

soaking up the sun,

lying on the beach,

sipping cocktails watching the sun going down over the sea

But what happened when you got back?

Major downer right?

You’re on such a high that you get this big low when you come back

Well I’m experiencing something similar

The last 12 weeks had been geared towards one day

Friday, photoshoot day

But now that’s all over

I’m in a major lull

No doubt it happens to you too

Maybe you’ve been working hard to stay fit

Or eating well

And then

BANG

You hit a low

Skip your exercise

have a ‘bad’ day of eating

Go on the piss at the weekend

Feel groggy for a few days

Whatever it is

Happens to us all

But when this happens

You have three main options

1. Be hard on yourself,

Beat yourself up as to how you should be stronger,

tell yourself you should be able to get right back on track

2. Give up on everything

Throw it all out the window

Waste your time looking at what other people are doing on social mejia

Watch more TV

Feel sorry for yourself

Anything but face your thoughts <–scary

Or

3. Switch into a low gear

potter along getting some stuff done

May not seem like big important stuff

But it’s still progress

And that my friend is much more important

Because you’ll feel better soon

And then

BANG

All of a sudden you’re motoring along again

I actually planned for feeling like this

I knew it was gonna come

Had to

So while I’m feeling a bit low

I’m not making myself worse by being too hard on myself

And I’m still training, just not as much as I have been

Eating ok-ish,

Mind you I still haven’t cooked a meal for myself since Wednesday

‘cept for my chocolate porridge this morning

The point is this

How can you stay consistent?

The answer?

I’ll tell you what I do tomorrow

And what I use to keep the SF members consistent

You can become one here btw…
