You may remember (if you’re over 30) the ‘Millennium Bug’.

The concern that, when the clock ticked over from 31st December 1999 to 1st January 2000, some computers would think it was 1900.

And planes would fall out of the sky.

Didn’t happen of course.

Because we (I say we – I didn’t do anything) had fixed the problem.

It wasn’t that it was never a problem.

It’s just we saw it coming.

And pre-empted it.

So, when it arrived, it wasn’t an issue.

Like we can do with a lot of our problems.

When something gets in the way of our exercise and / or better food choices………..

Chances are it’s not the first time that thing has ever happened.

Sometimes, sure.

Usually it’s the same few things over and over.

Things we can plan and prepare for.

Things we can aim to minimise the impact of.

Or to have a “next best thing” plan in place.

Whatever exercise we can do and the best food choices we can make under the circumstances.

Rather than letting it go straight from “theoretically perfect” to “rubbish” or nothing.

Can’t make our planned workout?

A home workout or some other form of exercise makes more sense than nothing at all.

Can’t eat quite as well (however we define that) as we thought we’d be able to at the start of the day or week?

Then eat as well as we can.

Don’t use it as a justification for going completely the opposite way.

Most of the things that ‘get in the way’ have got in the way before.

We can see them coming and plan around them to a reasonable degree.

Much love,
