There are plenty of negative influences around us. Besides everything on TV and billboards, you see your friends eating a great burger and a beer, you may be having a shit day and feel like saying "fuck it", or perhaps you haven't had a chance to eat all day and you see something quick and unhealthy right in front of you and you really need a boost of energy.
Like the title of the thread says, what do you do to help keep yourself in check during bad moments? I am trying to learn some new techniques, so if you have any good an practical ideas please share. I am not trying to be a body builder or "get abs" - my goals are to simply eat cleaner and get rid of this excess body fat from strength training and enjoying myself too often, without having to go off of the WSFSB program. I was down to a healthy weight a year ago, between a lack of discipline and my bipolar medications I gained about 20 lbs. With that said I boosted my squat about 100 lbs since then.
