BELIEVE in yourself and believe in your work ethic. Work hard to burn those calories right off. Believe that you have the power to do anything you want to. Next, REWARDS are effective because they help you stay motivated as well as challenge you. You should want to work hard in order to receive your reward. And finally ONE...Be #1 (however you define that)...be on top of your game, inspire and be positive...do your best at all times...you define it. And of course, when it comes to eating right and splurging once awhile...One of something that is high calorie/fat is better than more of that something.
Below, I want to give you some examples of innocent treats, their calories, and a good backup plan if you overindulge on them.
*Two (2) Twizzlers Twist (60 calories)- Back-Up Plan> 30 minute stroll through the park
*Dots, 1 ounce (95 calories)- Back-Up Plan> 15 minutes on the treadmill; 5% incline at 4 mph
*Large Handful of Skittles (100 calories)- Back-Up Plan> 10 minutes of vigorous push-ups
*Large Soft Drink (450 calories)- Back-Up Plan> Five mile race walk
*Junior Mints, 5-ounce box (595 calories)- Back -Up Plan> 45 minute stair climber workout
*Milk Duds, King-Size Box (900 calories)- Back-Up Plan> Two Step Aerobics Classes
*Hot Buttered Popcorn (1, 650 calories) Back-Up Plan> 16-mile run at 10 mph
So there is the low-down. Just be aware and be careful with the choices you make at the movies theater. It is good to splurge, it keeps your body happy...just don't overindulge. And if you happen to overindulge, burn those calories off! You would be amazed how they may seem so harmless at that moment, but how they can creep into unwanted weight eventually over time. Stay focused, have fun, and Happy Training!
