Last week I shared with my Fat Loss Fast Track & Masters Club clients that I had a particularly tough day. Tough days are inevitable, but there’s so much value in improving how we respond to them.
Here’s the post I shared with my clients about that tough day.
One of my clients wrote to me a couple days later that she was relieved to hear that I have bad days. Here’s the thing: bad things happen every single day. But, good things happen every day, too! Every day is a mixed bag.
Your experience of the day comes down to what you focus on!
The more you practice directing your attention to what is right or good, the stronger that pathway becomes.
The more you practice directing your attention to what is wrong or not enough, the stronger that pathway becomes.
The choice is yours and every day serves up tons of opportunities to practice.
No surprise, I had a chance to practice during today’s workout. It was a mixed bag. At the start, I PR’d my power clean. Awesome!!!
At the end, I failed on every.single.rep of the final round of power cleans. I was tired and just didn’t have the gas in my tank. I kept trying, but failed on evvvvvvvery rep.
Mixed bag. I choose to focus on the PR and my awesome effort and attitude. It was a win.

On the food front:
Gotta say, I was super hungry when I got home from my working and running a couple of errands.
Around 10am I had a cobb salad with chicken, avocado, tomatoes, egg and bacon.
At 1pm I had spaghetti squash with meat sauce and a couple handfuls of macadamia nuts.
I took advantage of the chance to eat an early dinner again (love it!) and had steak frites (sweet potato fries) – all from Paleo Power Meals. I’m so determined to make food choices each day that make me feel my absolute best. Today was a great day in that regard!
