This very morning I’ve achieved one of those pain in the arse slip ups!
One of those things which although small, can make you feel like your whole day is disrupted
So I only went and left my laptop charger at the Coalition Performance facility, which is a bit of sod when Im in Birmingham city centre all day and need my laptop
But this got me thinking as these slips happen all the time, and none more so with nutrition
I was only talk to a member last night who’s nutrition was slipperier than a wet kipper…
As they work on a site all day for long hours, are currently living at the in laws before moving to their next house, this has made the ‘normal’ steps to quality nutrition difficult
No doubt you have this too?
No time to prep, no time go to the shops daily, no healthy options at work?
So let me ask you this, as I asked them….
‘If non of that is going to change for the foreseeable, then what CAN you do’
I mean look, let me be honest…
If these things which cause the slips and challenges are not controllable or changeable, if your going to use them as an excuse, then what’s the logical outcome?…
Nothing will change with your nutrition = nothing will change with your body
So with our member in this example we discussed the following solutions:
- Stock pile snacks, don’t just go to the shops and buy for a day in case you can’t get to the shops the next
- Buy not only stuff which can stay cool in the fridge, but things which will keep likes nuts, protein powder/bars and fruit so you have a supply of snacks beyond 24 hours
Take me and Mrs C currently too…
With a boisterous near 3 year old and an 8 week old chunky monkey, many days Mrs C can’t cook
So instead of just us both starving with no solution then hitting the Colonel Sanders drive thru in Solihull…
We get the trays of meat and veg from the supermarket (free delivery) and just whack them in the oven
Do you often have these slips which you think stop you dead in progressing your nutrition?
Or are you just looking at the problem which won’t change, when in fact there is a solution which CAN allow you to nail your nutrition
