Sabotage and Getting back on the to speak

Friday, April 05, 2013

I've been thinking about sabotage and how we are so quick to sabotage ourselves. I give excuses as to why I didn't exercise, what I ate, Why I ate, etc. It's easy to do. I came up with cards that listed ALL my excuses and then what I called "excuse busters" and put the reality and truth of it. For example.

Excuse: I'm too tired to exercise.
Excuse Buster: If you wait until you have more energy, you'll never do it. Exercise will help give more energy.

But I have been also thinking about others in life who may intentionally OR unintentionally sabotage you. Someone I love dearly is very overweight and any time I try to eat healthy they are pushing bad food on me. I find thinking these things through really helps with the weight loss journey because ALOT of it is mental.

On that same side of it, I have viewed weightloss as a long term investment. It will take many months, maybe years to get where I want to be. But if I keep taking steps forward, I will get there and you will too. We will have ups and downs, but get back up and keep going. Stop beating yourself up.

    Well said! You are so right! Maybe your good eating and exercising habit will rub-off on the overweight saboteur - wouldn't that be a hoot?!? Keep on doing the hard work and it will pay off.
