Why this time of year makes you fat
December 8th, 2011
Just got off the phone with my personal trainer, and after talking
with him I had a couple of revelations.
The first was that while I had been training pretty hard lately,
I found out that I could have been doing a couple of things
differently and getting even more results.
The second was that with Thanksgiving and the holiday season going
around…I’ve been eating like a pig at a trough!
We both had a good laugh about that one, and he told me a story of
how he used to eat like a horse with a feedbag attached to his
neck, and how this time of year can really try and throw you off if
you’re not careful.
The funny thing about this time of year is that it seems like
everyone is vying for your attention. The retailers have been
pushing stuff on TV since Halloween, people are throwing work
parties that nobody wants to go to, and oh, don’t forget – you’re

enjoy the holidays.

to fat-dom, I saw that the lesson in all of this was that whenever
you’re feeling like you’re getting off course, getting off center,
or just plain not making progress…it’s time to check in and
remember what you’re missing.
What were you doing the last time you were on course. What were
you doing when you were really succeeding.
In my case, it was tracking my training in a log and then getting
psyched to do even more.
It’s the same way with your website, with your marketing, with your
online business. Without tracking, you come undone. Everything
becomes unmanageable. There are more questions than answers.
And that’s no place to be.

Sometimes you need a little reminder though, like I did. And then
it’s easy to get back on the old improvement train, where
everything is always getting a little better every day.
That’s a great place to be.
