I am committed to making permanent adjustments to habitual behaviors. Eating when I'm not hungry. Self-soothing with sweets. Going hog-wild and eating everything in site because I've gone over my calorie recommendation. Turning little mistakes into evidence that I will NEVER be able to eat healthy.
But forever is a long time.
Days only turn into "bad" ones, when I don't learn from them. When I use them as reasons to give up. It didn't take me 7 days to learn these eating habits, and it certainly won't take 7 days to undo them.
I am in this for the long haul. That means not only do I have time to learn from set backs; I also have plenty of time to have set backs and still achieve every one of my fitness goals.
I just have to keep practicing. Keep reminding myself what to do. Keep lovingly forgiving myself when I don't. Keep reading and thinking and inundating myself with the reality of where I'm going. Keep moving forward.
