How Many Redo's Do I Get?

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

So this morning I am up at 5am to walk the dog, shower and leave for work by 5:40am. I am rushing around, as usual, and I didn't have time to make my green juice this morning. It is now 10:00am and I am STARVING. I am looking at my food tracker and here is exactly what goes through my head:

"I already failed yesterday by going over my calories by 400. I am on a roll now and I have that birthday party this weekend, so maybe I should just forget about calorie counting and start my diet on Monday? It is Whopper Wednesday after all..."

Why is this the first thing that I think as soon as there is an obstacle in my way? Oh well, I might as well give up and try again another time. What if I don't get a chance to start over? What if I never reach that day of actually starting? I am doomed to be fat forever if I keep thinking this way. So what am I thinking now?

"I have stumbled but I will not fall. I will have a sensible lunch, a healthy snack, a healthy dinner and enjoy some exercise after work."

There are no more Redo's from now on... only DO's!!!

    Awesome that you have Self Talk. I used to say.
If I wait till day x. I will be that many days FARTHER away from reaching my goal.

Also when you DO mess up....don't throw away the whole day!!!
I never understood people who were like...well I ate something I shouldn't have...I may as well keep eating. You can make up for one indiscresion by walking more or doing something good. However it is harder to make up for an ENTIRE DAY of indulgence.


YOU are in control!!! not the food, not the time restraints make the RIGHT choices!!!
Keep telling yourself you will get there, and YOU WILL GET THERE!!!
We are here for you!!! We beleive in you!!!

    Good for you for catching yourself! YOU are so right that IF not now, when? There will NEVER be a convenient time to start, always an obstacle, always not enough time to get your food together. YOU are RIGHT! I know I always get myself in trouble IF I try to START anything with giant steps instead of baby steps...but if start small, then I often can quickly move into bigger & better steps toward weight loss & good heath.

Hang in there - keep talking to yourself - you're worth it!
