Treat Your Diet Like a Baseball Season

We’re kicking into March shortly and all the New Years Resolutions have come and gone with baseball season officially returning next week.

I’m pretty conscientious about my diet, but keeping a strict diet is hard; damn near impossible. I have come to understand that your diet is like a baseball season. You can’t win every game.

Maybe you “win” the first three days of the week. But, come Thursday you go out to eat for a steak dinner and on Friday you decide on dessert.

That’s okay. I’m just trying to have a .750 winning percentage.

You’re winning a game, reliever comes in, gives up 4 runs or a second basemen boots a ball and the floodgates open. It’s baseball- that happens.

Same thing goes for your diet.

I want to have more good meals than bad meals, for sure. If I’m eating a full three meals a day, and let’s say a snack everyday too, so 28 meals a week, then I am okay with 5 or 6 losses. To win a pennant with my body I’ll be in pretty decent shape if I go 22-6.

Remember, It’s not about having one bad meal that’s bad…it’s one meal, the next one, and the next one.

I always have my ace meal that I can count on when I have had a bad meal or two. Omelette in the morning. Salad with some grilled chicken for lunch with no dressing. Right after that we’re back in the win-column.

Treat your diet as you would a baseball season.

  • Hello, my name is Rachel Frye and I want to give this testimony in respect of Dr. Odunga who made me win $2 Million Dollars in the Lottery by matching the 5 numbers for me. I am happy to be out of financial debt and be able to help my family in this seasonal period of fun and cheer. I contacted Dr. Odunga through Whats-App (+2348167159012) when I told him to help me win the Mega Millions and He told me that it would be spiritually checked if I will win the Lottery. When he informed me that I will not be able to win the Jackpot but I will win a huge amount in the lottery I was not completely sad but had great faith in him. I live in Freeland, Saginaw County, Michigan and I would say it was pretty hard to send him the money for the spell before he gave me the winning numbers to play. He sent me the numbers and I played. The next morning after the drawing, I matched the five white balls in the Aug. 4 drawing to win $1 million: 11-30-45-52-56. Thanks to the Megaplier X2, my prize was multiplied to $2 million. Thank You Dr Odunga for this wonderful experience with you. You too can contact Dr. Odunga at his Whats-App +2348167159012 or Email:
