All or nothing attitude.

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Sparkcoach assignment is to blog about the last time I had an all or nothing attitude about exercise or eating. I think this subject is huge and it's the difference between success and failure. I haven't had this attitude in over a year.
For example: Today I'm walking my 5.5 miles and I might try out my dance dvd. It's on my schedule but I'm not sure if I can motivate myself to try it. Not going to ruin my day.
As for eating, I'm too afraid that if I ever fall off the wagon and have a "bad" day of overeating I might not get back on and gain my weight back. I don't want to do that. My rule of not eating after six at night prevents me from overeating.
Non scale measure of progress: Yesterday I stopped at the gap to try on a green sweater/jacket I've been wanting to wear for St.Pat's. They only had a M and an XL left. The M fits great!!! Pics to follow! emoticon

    Yes, I guess you're right about the eating thing but my all or nothing is now to maintain instead of lose.

    Sounds like you've still got a hint of the All or Nothing in your eating habits. If you overeat one day, it's not the end of the world! Keep doing what you're doing, but don't worry: if you do end up going over one day, tomorrow -- as Scarlett says -- is another day.
