How we hold ourselves back

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I read this article today: Holding myself back tinyurl.com/a8s2elx
It's about self-sabotage. If I'm trying to lose weight and I screw up and over eat, and I think that I'm holding myself back, then there are several points of view in place. There's the the part of me that wants to lose weight, another part that fears change and rebels, a third part that judges the rebel for messing up. In this cast of characters, which one is me? All of them? None of them? The mind has a mind of it's own sometimes, and makes up stories and runs away with them.

So this is what I"m working on. Letting go of stories. Better to just to leave the judgements behind. If I want to lose weight, take action. If I want to overeat, say on a special occasion, do it! Enjoy the moment.

Minutes this week, running total:
Cardio: 170
Strength: 75

    You are right, sometimes we think ourselves right into failure.

    I do the same thing. I have good intentions every day and don't follow through with them.

    You can do it. You will do it. Good luck. Baby steps. One good choice at a time.
