Steps I'm taking to stop sabotaging my efforts

Sunday, February 03, 2013

I'm going to focus on all the positive healthy steps I've taken and eliminate the negative self-talk that holds me hostage. All the times I've eaten a healthy meal, walked a little farther, exercised a little harder, or danced a little more "vs" being so hard on myself and throwing in the towel because I got side tracked once or ate a piece of apple pie instead of an apple.
Too many times I get frustrated for not losing weight, blame my thyroid or my arthritis and my knees or something else, and just say heck with it and eat whatever is available at that moment. Once I cheat then it lays the ground work to continue to binge the rest of the day.

I'm going to give myself permission to slip up without the negativity and post a note everywhere possible to remind me that is is ok to not be perfect.

My thoughts for the day: Way to Spark!

    Thanks for all of your blessings. I do believe attitude is 99% of the battle and there is a lot of truth to the old saying "we are our own worst critics." Just put one foot in front of the other and take one day at a time. Life is great.

    We can all be our own worst enemies. I too must endeavor to curb the tendancy to be negative. I had a good day today and plan to have another tomorrow eating and fitness and water-wise.

    Love your attitude--all or nothing sets up for failure. We all stumble but getting right back up is our victory! Wishing you blessings on your journey! emoticon emoticon emoticon
