A Winning Weight-Loss Combo
Approach eating and training with the same mind-set
1 You have to be consistent. Just like you can’t only do a long run and expect to finish a race well, you can’t focus on your diet just a few days of the week.
2 One bad run doesn’t ruin your training, and one bad meal (or day of bad eating) doesn’t derail your weight-loss quest. Lace back up and get out there.
3 Get to the starting line by setting small goals, like running for a half-mile beyond your current limit, or choosing a granola bar instead of candy.
4 There are days you don’t want to run and days you want to raid Dunkin’ Donuts. Tell yourself you’ll just go two miles; chances are you’ll pass up the DD.
1. What is your favorite way to burn calories?
2. Do you think comparing your diet to a run will help you stick to your plan?
