Here was my reply:
What’s changed for this to happen with you? Anything you can think of?
You’re currently on the best training and nutrition run you’ve been on so just remember how hard you’re working in the gym. Also you shouldn’t find the eating too hard work because you’re eating lovely meals. It’s all about mindset (which I know is tough), we see crappy foods as a treat but 5 mins after eating it we feel like crap ourselves! Surely a treat for the body would be something nutritious and enjoyable like a steak or the healthy desserts you were making.
Is there a lot of bad foods in the house? That’s always a reason people go off course, it’s hard to resist then.
Just take it easy and don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Just do some light workouts (walk/run/treadmill/bodyweight circuit) at a nice intensity and just enjoy it. Mornings are good. And these are easy to fit into the day even if you are working.
Plan your meals and try and have breakfast to stop you oversnacking. Eggs/yoghurt for breakfast, omelette/salad/leftovers for lunch and then dinner mince/steak/chicken/turkey with potato or rice. A couple of days back on this and you’ll be fine. If you want to snack try and go back to the dark choc/bars/nuts. The longer you stay off track the harder it is to get back. You’ve been working your ass off this year and just remember how much better the training and food is making you feel and you’ll be fine my friend!
We’re human so we all have little lapses. There’s no real damage done so you’ll bounce back fine. Decide what you’re going to change for the better tomorrow and then the same the day after. It’s a journey start to finish and you’ve just slipped slightly off the path, follow the above and you’re back on track.
