SP coach lesson today was about the negative imapct of the all or nothing attitude vs something attitude. How timely.
Last yr, I was A or N . When i stopped exercising and tracking my foods due to interruptions I did do get back on track, As a result I am re starting SP. Lat yr I lost 12 pds in 4 months. Then there was thanksgiving, then xmas and I gained everyhing back. No big deal but then I did not get back on track. My A or N attitude kicked in.
Since starting SP most recently I had several interruptions. Went to Spain, thanksgiving and Xmas. Also my exercise has limitations d/t injuries. And I am getting older.
So even though I have continued on SP despite my interruptions ( times I do not track) and I have not lost those 10 pds. I am proud of myself.
Why. Because I now have a something attitude. I feel more physically fit despite my limitations. I can only run because of my back. I no longer push myself to exercise. It has become a habit. That actually was my focus and goal. To focus on my physical abilites and not the scale. I do not look at the timeline for loss but instead have told myself it does not matter how long it will take. What matters is the consistency and physical skills.
