Make sure your willpower has a backup generator!!



(Phrase) ‘wil-pow-er ‘ow-tadj The moment when, after, hours, days, weeks, even months of heroic self-discipline (e.g. dieting, exercising, quitting smoking, not watching Entourage repeats) you crumble. Usage: In the six months before his college reunion, Claude kicked cigarettes, went on the Atkins diet, and lost thirty pounds. At the reunion, surrounded by his old roommates, he suffered a willpower outage. By July, he was smoking again, and had gained back the weight he’d lost…plus 5 pounds.
