Getting back on plan after a little trip up..

IMG_0471

So I’ve had a few people ask – how do you get back on plan after a cheat day or a little trip up? There’s no one answer to this question. I know where I want to be and quite simply I know what I have to do to get there… I’m so determined to get to goal by May and I know the only way this is ever going to happen is if I stay on plan and go to the gym 3 times a week!

Whenever I have a cheat day normally either Saturday or Sunday, I treat the next day as a fresh start. I don’t tend to let the cheats carry on after I’ve had a blow out one day (usually planned). Like the saying is – one bad meal won’t make you fat, just like one good meal won’t make you skinny. I am quite a dedicated person and I have very good self control when it comes to food. This is mostly because I treat myself with night time treats every night!

Everyday I know that in the evening I have my 4-6PP worth of treats so I don’t feel the need to eat badly during the day or have a little ‘treat’ because I deserve it, when in fact I don’t even need it? Or deserve it? Because I have treats every night haha!

My normal daily allowance is 26PP a day which I think is plenty! I have 2PP for skimmed milk a day, 4-6PP for nighttime snacks, usually 3-4PP for breakfast, 5-8PP for lunch and 7-9PP for dinner! So that’s how I like to spread my points! (I don’t like to waste my points earlier in the day if you’ve noticed).

I tend to always know when I’m having a treat day, – this week it will be Mother’s Day as I’m off home this weekend and haven’t seen my parents for 8 weeks! 🙂 so I can’t then plan my workouts and weeklies around that!

The key to succeeding is being organised, and I would say I’m a very organised person! I do have a lot going on in my life right now that being – final year of uni, socialising, going to the gym, working, and planning what I’m doing when I finish uni! Being in my final year at uni, having a 6 weeks full time research project has not given me an excuse to ‘have a little break’ because it has to done and I just have to suck it up! Plus when I get a full time job I’m going to be still eating healthy and working out, so why don’t start now?!

I do know that everyone has other stuff going out and that, but if your organised there’s no reason for you to not finish what you started 🙂

A tip for eating healthy..

I only buy healthy foods! So even if I do want to be naughty I have no temptations in my flat to allow me to do so (unless I purposely go out and buy some – too lazy for that haha!) so if you are struggling when it comes to the healthy eating side, just remove all the temptations!

I really do hope this helps people!

Ciao for now x

    Great post! I also am using the WW system and I just was curious if you typically eat all of your daily points, activity points and weekly allowance points? Keep up the great work!
