One thing can change your whole attitude

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Why is it the minute that something doesn't go as you want it to it changes the whole pace of the day? My weight went down, I exercised but when I get upset the first thing I want to do is sabotage the whole thing. Who do I think I'm hurting by doing this? Only myself. I need to put it thru my head for the million and one times that this is for me. I only hurt myself and no one else by eating wrong or not exercising, or putting the pounds back on. I have come to far.. I must continue to move forward with my healthy new habits. I must not let one bad thing over shadow all the good that I've achieved..Thanks for reading... emoticon

    I think sometimes we are willing to doubt even concrete results or even feel like maybe we don't deserve our success. It can be a terrible cycle, and there are few people who have not fallen prey to that very thing. Maybe it would help to reframe - rather than thinking sabotage and hurting only yourself, maybe there are better words to describe it? I think to a certain extent, if you berate yourself for these sorts of slips and dips, you could potentially escalate the very behaviors you are trying to stop. Study the deviation, learn from it, and then FORGET IT. One day does not a life change make, nor does one milkshake make you fat, or one workout make you healthy. It's a journey, and it has been my observation that only the Romans refused to make turns as they made their roads, going over and through mountains and valleys. It wasn't stubbornness, but rather lack of knowledge about how to engineer a corner. You have the ability to see and accept the corners on the road you have to build - use it.

    Keep up the good work.
