Getting Back On Track

July 21, 2014, 6:25 PM by Brittany Larson

Getting Back On Track
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

We all know it can be easy to get off-track, especially when Friday rolls around.

"It's easy to overindulge on the weekend. Sometimes it's easy to overindulge during the week when you have things to go do picnics and jazzfest it's easy to fall into that," Jeff Nelson said.

We're all guilty of having a few slip-ups here and there.

"I would say it's sparks my blood sugar so I can feel that in my body, and in my head so it's a matter of being very aware," Dar Bekenpas said

"You do feel it. You have that lethargic feeling kind of bloated so you have to stay on task to make sure you're diligent full time," Nelson said.

Jeff Nelson works out with a personal trainer three times a week to help him stay accountable.

"I had a hip replaced and a knee replaced in the past 18 months and if it hadn't been for this place I wouldn't be in the position I am in right now in being to have really good mobility," Nelson said. 

Health experts say emotional eating can also sabotage your weight loss efforts. Some triggers may include relationship conflicts, work stress, or financial pressure. But it's important not to have certain slip-ups ruin your whole week.

"Say you had 200 or 300 extra calories in my opinion that's an indulgence. Having a 1000 extra calories that's abusing yourself, where that can come a negative habit or negative pattern it's going to be harder to overcome the difference," Avera Personal Trainer Chad Gomarko said.

Gomarko also recommends to stay disciplined not just on Monday but throughout the whole week.

"We try to teach develop a positive habit. Focus on your process and continue with that process. Along that path there's always going to be some setbacks but don't let those things limit your potential for success," Gomarko said

Nelson strives to keep a balance of having fun and working out.

"You're always going to have slip ups if you don't have those what's life about and you got to be able to enjoy life as long as you come back and realize this is part of the enjoyment, too," Nelson said.
