Let’s face it.
It’s not like you’re never going to eat pizza again.
And it’s not like I’m never going to eat a single french fry ever again.
Sure, we aim to eat a lot less of that stuff, and certainly less frequently. But sometimes pizza happens. And beer and wine. And salted caramel.
And it usually happens on a weekend, right?
Maybe you plan on taking one innocent little cheat day — or a cheat meal for that matter— and then the next thing you know, that little cheat snowballs into a lost weekend filled with unhealthy choices.
So what do we do after a lost weekend?
For starters, we nip things in the bud come Monday. We get centered and focused, and keep that lost weekend from becoming a lost week… or weeks… or months.
Here’s one of my favorite practices for making healthier habits happen in the real world.
I like to call it Make-Good Monday. And the beauty of this practice is that you can make it happen any day of the week.
