All or nothing attitude
Friday, October 18, 2013
Today's Community Task is to blog about last time I fell victim to an all or nothing attitude. Well, it was just this past Wednesday. I work just one day a week. I take my lunch but this week I chose to go out to lunch at Sizzler with a friend. Seemed like a good choice but then I got tempted by some of the extras available on the soup and salad bar like the clam chowder and a little piece of cake and a spoonful or two of pudding. Pretty soon I felt as though I had blown it and snacked late into the evening after I got home. I did better the next couple of days although the temptation to snack in the evening was stronger than it is when I do a better job of sticking to the plan I make for the day. I went to a party last night and strayed from plan by enjoying a small glass of wine and some of the snacks provided. This morning I ate a light breakfast. I am not very hungry this morning. I have plans for a long walk later on and for some meditation time. I appreciated today's message from Coach Nicole about making the best choices you can with what's in front of you at the moment. That helps me to be in a better place to forgive myself when I perceive that I have strayed and to not stray as far thus not falling into that all or nothing attitude.
