Coming off what was probably my worst maintenance week so far this year (my body fat rose from 8.3% to 8.8%), I have focused on really tightening up my diet. As I mentioned in this past Sunday’s weekly progress report, over the past 2 weekends I’ve been pretty lax with my diet (2 or 3 full-blown cheat meals and a few semi-cheat meals). So far this week my diet has been 100% clean, but my cravings for less-than-healthy dinners have been strong.
When I completed my cut almost 24 weeks ago (during which I did not have any cheat meals at all), the desire for junk food wasn’t really there. Every couple of weeks I’d develop a craving for something decadent and allow myself to indulge, but maintaining a clean diet wasn’t at all difficult.
The past couple of weekends, however, saw me indulging far more than usual, and now this week the cravings for junk food have been much stronger than they have been since my cut ended. It’s interesting how that works, isn’t it?
So what I’m doing now is forcing myself to get back to that place where junk food doesn’t sound very appealing. It’s taking some discipline to do that, but once I get through a couple of weeks of 100% clean eating it won’t be hard at all. Habits (good or bad) die hard, so focus on developing good ones! Doing so will make your life much easier.
Speaking of good habits, it’s time for me to satisfy another never-ending craving and get some mountain biking in before work!
