After one the Bulletproof Dad sessions last night in the gym
I was chatting to one of my newer recruits.
He had joined Bpd back in November.
And apart from the usual bit of excess over the Christmas,
he’s been flying.
Getting on really well with the training
and fully embracing his new lifestyle,
eating better and taking better care of himself.
But the weekend just gone he was over at theLiverpool game with his mates.
And “went a bit mad on the pints”
You could see it in him,
he was disgusted in himself as he
hadn’t had a heavy session like that in months.
But rather than have a go at him
I had to point out that because he was in a
completely different environment to his usual.
Being on the beer with the lads, he was bound
to make a few bad choices.
As everyone in his environment was doing the same.
But unlike previous times,
the following day (Monday) he was already back to his normal food routine
and was in the gym with me yesterday evening.
So while he had a bad weekend he’s already back on it.
So rather than beat himself up about it,
he just needs to use it as his motivation
for this week to get back to good habits.
And because he has a solid foundation
of god regular habits in both his training and eating well laid down.
It’s easy for him to transition back to his “normal routine”.
Where as if this was back in November before he joined BPD
he’s be at risk of letting the bad weekend spill into the week
as he’s no proper routine nailed down.

PS if you’re someone who struggles to get back into a routine
after a “bad” weekend.
