That’s when I snapped.

Fries cooked in tallow twice sold me. That’s not a restaurant experience you get everyday.

We were heading to Worthy Burger.

Flannel, trucker hats, and 37 craft beers reassured me I was in the right place. No frills, just local food. We both order the burger with bacon but no bun, his topped with cheddar, mine with a roasted red pepper, and slid into an open table to wait.

“What an interesting experience,” Clint said. “I’ve never been to a place like this.”

I love little hole-in-the-wall delicacies like Worthy Burger and seek them out at every opportunity. Since my hubby isn’t always with me on my adventures, I was excited he was excited and began fantasizing about all our future food excursions.

Clint jumped to grab our food when our buzzer went off several minutes later. He’s always doing things like this.

“How’s your food?” I asked half-way through the meal.

“Eh, it’s fine.

That’s when I snap.

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing seems to go right?

You wake up late, throw your hair up while brushing your teeth and simultaneously putting on eyeliner with your foot, and run out the door.

Ten minutes down the road you realize that you forgot the bill on the counter that’s due today. And the grocery list. And a file you needed at work. And your freakin’ lunch that you actually prepared last night so you wouldn’t eat all the Christmas cookies at work.

“#%!$”

Can’t a sista’ catch a break?!

Or this is you every day?

 

Over the next two weeks, I’m committed to helping you bring in the BEST 2015 possible. Whether you want to finally lose the weight, feel yummy naked, or amplify your performance at home, work, or in your sport, this will give you the step-by-step process to get there.

Forget the one-size-fits-all diet and exercise plans or the lists and lists of good intentions.

Forget the snazzy “Resolution Reality” headlines designed to sell you on the idea of transformation, but providing underwhelming results instead. Jerry Seinfeld says it best in this video. Click on the image to play it.

“But we’re happy in that moment in between the commercial and the purchase and I think spending your life duping innocent people out of hard-won earnings to buy useless, low quality, misrepresented items and services is an excellent use of your energy.” Fyi, The CLIO Awards are an advertising awards show. Talk about telling the truth. 🙂

Forget the nonsense. Real sustainable results don’t come from buying program after program, the latest supplement, or catching the next motivation train when you feel like it for two days that one week.

 

Your straight-shootin’ BFF will tell you the truth. Improving your body and life takes some forethought and an upfront investment of your energy. Every choice we make throughout the day comes at a price and also cumulatively builds toward certain future circumstances – ones you’re happy with… or not.

 

But here’s what I can promise you. The results you desire will flow out of your work when you make the upfront investment. No more forcing. No more willpower war. No more uphill battle.

 

In fact, we’ll make it EASY to follow-through.

At the end, my gift to you is a PDF Guide print-out to use all year long. Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • 12/18 Thursday: Set Yourself Up for Success. 90% of people fail before they ever begin working towards a new goal because 75% of your results come from this practice.
  • 12/22 Monday: KISS. Reaching goals isn’t complicated. You just need momentum that builds confidence in your own abilities to follow-through.
  • 12/23 Tuesday: The Catalyst Technique. Our goals are verbal codes for deeper unspoken desires. I’ll teach you exactly how to get clear on those unspoken desires to identify your go-to catalyzers. These are different for everyone and will make your program instantly more effective and exciting to you.
  • 12/29 Monday: The O.L.D. Method. Learn how to make follow-through simple and fun by flipping everything you thought you knew about goal-attainment on its head.
  • 12/30 Tuesday: The Results Map. Here’s the fun part of pulling all of our work together into an actionable, step-by-step, unique plan that works. You’ll have your clear plan, your timeline, and your accountability. Done.

 

I was overwhelmed by all of your encouraging responses about my year-end review. You said things like, “Growth… not failure,” and “I’ve let my self-care go the past few months, so thanks for the reminder that we’re all in this together.”

You don’t know what you don’t know. And I know so many of you have tried year after year to lose weight, develop discipline, or find a sense of balance. You don’t have to live like this. So perhaps what I’ve learned from my failures can continue to help you by helping you get unstuck and let go of your struggle for good.

 

Oh, and those crazy days… they throw everything out of whack and for many, off track from forward progress.

I wish I could say after 5 years of marriage that I put my husband’s needs before my own, but it’s not true. He thinks of me first and so do I.

His “eh, it’s fine,” was interpreted as, “I’ll never be able to share my obsession with food with my husband on the level I need. He can’t appreciate food like I do. Why do I even bother when I’ll just be hurt????

Burnt bacon was the truth of the matter. He didn’t want to complain.

*crickets*

Had I put tomorrow’s strategy in place like I normally practice, this episode probably wouldn’t have happened. Nor would those crazy days where nothing goes right and you can’t seem to stop it.

 

But today, I’m curious. What’s your best advice for handling crazy days??? Share your best strategy in the comments below. I can’t wait to read it. 

 

Life tastes better with butter,

P.S. Oh, yeah, forgot to mention the Christmas edition of Foodie Friday this week including my fave healthy hot chocolate recipe and yearly gingerbread cookies. 🙂
