I’ve mentioned the 90/10 rule in the past, but it’s worth mentioning here again. All my routines and schedules, diet and training planning, can get a bit neurotic. For someone with a family, that’s not always fun. Husbands need to indulge in chocolate and wine taste with their wives.
Dads need to play with their kids, eat ice cream, get popcorn and candy at the movie theater … Be NORMAL! … (at least) 10% of the time. Friday and Saturday nights tend to be the nights that we let our kids break from their weekly routines, so I typically do too!
Beer drinking happens.
Carb eating happens.
Dessert DEFINITELY happens.
Breakfast happens (sometimes)
Even skipping a workout to play at the park happens.
Work your ass off 90% of the time, but when it comes time to live a little, to let loose, do it. And because it isn’t something you do all the time, the normal moments will mean even more to you!
Comment with your own strategies for staying normal while you are on the path to achieving your goals.
