Full Episode Transcript

Hey everybody! Welcome to the four o'clock tasting and the Keto tip. We've got legitimately around four minutes! It's not that I forgot, I did not forget. Our Monday's are a busy day, and it's great. I love it! So it's a busy morning, busy day, we are having to leave the house soon. But before we do, I'm going to actually shake up a caffeine free today, because it's later in the day, it's four o'clock. Caffeine really doesn't affect me, I honestly could have caffeine probably right before bed and I would be just fine. So as you're tuning in, where are you tuning in from? We have to go get volleyball players, go to horse lessons and another volleyball player, all those things. I call myself a mom taxi, and I absolutely love it.

So here's the tip of the day I labeled this as "Will the Doughnut Hurt You Today?"... I've talked about this kind of topic in some other lives, but I just want to give you perspective.
Flavor of the Day: "Strawberry Peach"

Let's say that you get up, you go to the office and you don't even think about it. People then bring in the fanciest doughnuts in the world, and you were like "Yes! Awesome, we're celebrating something"... You grab the doughnut, and you eat it. And then what happens is, so many people beat themselves up in their mind. They get super frustrated, and then they do one of two things... They either throw everything out the window that day and dive full force into saying "Well today's another cheat day, I'll start tomorrow". Or they go about their day and they would say "Nope! It's fine"...

So either they freak out and they give up for that day, or they'll say it's not a big deal and do better the rest of the day.

Now, each person represents a 1% Better or a 1% Worse. Meaning when you make decisions throughout your day, I want you to think about this really quick. I want you to think to yourself

"If I eat a doughnut today, I'm not going to gain twenty pounds tomorrow. I'm not even going to gain five pounds".

Because you won't! Some of you just get so fixated on that scale, and you think that you gained three pounds overnight. But you did the perfect diet the day before. Some say "I've been doing Keto for three weeks, and I've gained three pounds". People's bodies fluctuate and factors could be, with time of the day that you weigh yourself, how much fluid that you have. Even the temperature plays a factor, or if your body's holding on to fluids, like if it's hot, and all of the things. So I want to give you this perspective, if you're making decisions. "The doughnut might not affect me today, I'm not going to gain weight overnight. But if I continuously make not great choices over the course of the next four months or for the rest of the year, I'm going to make a One percent worse"...

Bad choices will accumulate and you will see that over time

I kind of want to give you a visual. So if I eat the doughnut or I don't, it's not a big deal today. Both people will probably wake up tomorrow and be fine. But as you make those decisions, person one is making better decisions every day. Buns off the burgers croutons off the salad. Person one is making a conscious, focused effort to make a better decision.
