On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I share how to rebound after eating bad food during the weekend or holidays.
Plus, I want to talk about my recent mega cheat meal experience.
But first, here’s the deal.
My dog Peyton was supposed to be co-starring with me during this post.
It was supposed to be one of those warm and fuzzy feeling type vibes from both of us.
But I think he had too much alcohol to drink last night, so now he’s been passed out on the couch all day 🤣.
So it looks like I’m going to have to run the show on my own.
Peyton, Peyton, Peyton…smh.
But, the show must go on.
First, I want to give you all a big huge thank you from me, Peyton, and all of Live Lean TV, for tuning in episode after episode.
I’m truly grateful for your loyalty and support throughout the hardest year of my life (in 2012).
And more importantly, for actually taking action on all the tips I share on how to Live Lean, 365 days a year.
By doing this, you’re helping me further my Live Lean transformation 1,000,000 mission.
In particular, I want to share my philosophies on Living Lean while on holidays or after a weekend binge.
I’ll tell you what, if I would have filmed what I did last night, you probably would have been shocked.
My night was comprised of cheat meal, after cheat meal, after cheat meal.
This experience just goes to show that, when it comes to eating food, you don’t have to stick to strict nutrition rules, every single day of your life.
Depriving yourself of the simple pleasures in life is not what Living Lean is about.
Living Lean is about balance, progress, and making healthier choices 80% of the time…not perfection.
That way, when you have celebrations over the weekend or special holidays, you can let loose a little bit.
Last night I had a hamburger, fries, and grey goose and water.
Although it was at a high-class restaurant, it was still a hamburger, fries, and alcohol.
Then to top it off, for dessert I had a Dairy Queen blizzard.
Tonight, I’m also going out for another dinner.
I’ll be enjoying lobster and steak, and it’s going to be awesome.
So the point is, it is possible to have fun over the holidays, while still Living Lean.
Promise me that you will get right back on track the next day.
Don’t be one of those people who beat themselves up after a slip up.
Trust me, if you cheat for a meal, or even a few days, all of the gains you’ve been working towards for the last six months won’t be ruined.
It just doesn’t happen that way.
When I woke up this morning, I still had abs when I looked in the mirror.
If you continuously cheat over and over again, then yes, you are going to eventually lose your abs or add belly fat.
But if you do it one time, it’s not the end of the world.
Just get back to the gym the next day and train a little bit harder.
This rebound workout should kick your butt.
But I love it.
I love the sweat and pain that comes from a hard workout.
Speaking of a great rebound workout program to get you back in shape after falling off the wagon…
I want to say a big thank you to everybody that picked up a copy of my best selling program, Live Lean Afterburn.
A lot of people don’t know this, but creating online content is my full-time job.
I did sign an online network deal for Live Lean TV on YouTube, which helps.
These videos are a small part of my revenue stream coming in.
Every single time you buy a Live Lean program, all that revenue that comes in allows me to provide this content for you.
So I just wanted to express a huge thank you for the success of Live Lean Afterburn.
I also have another follow along video program called Live Lean Meltdown.
If you’ve been following us on our Live Lean TV Facebook Page, you probably saw some pictures from the filming of that program.
Classic example of too many things going on at once.
But if you were one of the many people to pick up my Live Lean Afterburn program, I am so grateful for you.
I’ve been getting a lot of positive responses from people that have it, so I know it’s kicking your butt.
I don’t want to get all sappy, but I don’t know how else to say it.
Thank you and more big things to come!
Talk to you soon.
