I’ll start on Monday. Have you ever said I’ll start on Monday or I start right after my birthday, the summers over, the wedding or vacation? If I could go back and shake myself out of that thought pattern I would. Did you know every time I uttered those words I start as soon as ____. I gave my self-permission to be out of control until the event. In hind sight, I was really allowing myself to balloon up in preparation of start over. This was always a complete disaster for me. What I would tell myself now is be mindful every day. Enjoy yourself at the event and continue on your health journey. I would call it the live your life and be happy plan. Living with a maintenance mindset. Think about this a lot as I am planning my Vacation.
In the end, it's easier to stay on track before and during, than to get back on track on Monday. Spend the time and mental energy on how to stay on track during all those events. There will always be events. 1425 days ago
