all or nothing vs something attitude
Monday, January 07, 2013
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.
