How do you stay on track at parties and outing when no one else is watching what they eat and you hear you can start over tomorrow or one cheat day won’t hurt?
Ok so this really comes down to you being in charge of your results. One of the best ways to build confidence is by keeping your commitments to yourself--to know that if you tell yourself you’ll do something, you’ll do it. You have your own back. Not tracking social situations becomes problematic when you decide in the rush of it, “oh screw it” and you then go extra overboard because you want to get it all in. If this happens often enough it can totally impact your results. Everyday you cut you are building a calorie deficit and one night of overindulgence can diminish or erase that deficit. We want you to decide with intention beforehand how you’re going to handle a social situation---and then do your best. Nobody is perfect. Even if you come away with “hey, I wasn’t spot on but it wasn’t as balls to the wall as I normally go”--to us that’s a win. You are in charge of your results. If you’re not seeing what you want, it’s time to troubleshoot and like I said earlier--tightening up the weighing and tracking, the untracked meals and the BLT’s is the first place to evaulate.
