For those of you who don’t play golf, a mulligan is a do over. You hit a bad shot and then you get to do it over again. Well here we are coming off a long weekend filled with fun activities that may have included lots of food and alcohol.
You wake up today look in the mirror reflect on your weekend. You say to yourself, I’m going to the gym and hit the weights the little harder, do a little more cardio or skip a meal or to to make up for all this past weekend’s bad behavior.
Do you think it will help? Sorry to inform you, but no. I tell my clients that you need to live the 80/20 rule. Eat cleanly 80% of the time and have some treats 20% of the time. If you go over that limit then there is no make-up. You need to step up and take responsibility for your actions. If you eat you own it!
The lesson is before you eat or drink it. Think about it. Are your actions moving you toward your goals or away from you goals.
