Day 11 of the Summer Challenge
Thursday, July 11, 2013
You know, sometimes it takes a while for a thought or realization to "click"...I had one of those moments yesterday.
You know, like one of those "connect the dots" moments.
Like "If I eat this...I will end up looking/feeling like that"....or "If I continue to do, or not do such and such ...the result will be such and such."
When there is a disconnect with what you are doing and the results you want to get....it is a problem. I guess we are really good at fooling ourselves. Yes - there are health factors that come into play, but I am talking about when you have a CHOICE!
DO YOU CHOOOOOSE the best for yourself? Or do you fool yourself into thinking that "just this once won't matter"?
Problem is....at the end of the day...the "just this once" instances add up.
I have said this before and I will say it again, unless you have your MINDset in the right place, it's hard to stick to EXTERNAL RULES. They work for a while ( like a 30 Day challenge) ...but the goal is to make them internal.
I have discussed this before.
Can you think of an instance when you "connected the dots"...or faced up to the truth about your nutrition and health choices?
Can you identify a habit that you need to pick apart to get to the root of the reason why you do them? Will you make a choice, do you keep the habit ( and forfeit your goal...) or do you happily give up the habit to be the person you really want to be without doubt and guilt?
Let me know,
AND MAY DAY 11 be one of GOOD CHOICES because we are worth it and we are not defined by our mistakes. It's not about perfection, it is about progress!
