Dealing With Stress And Disappointment
Saturday, November 18, 2017
We've had some picky, demanding and rude potential buyers looking at our house. (Even though I've been cleaning twice a week and we've done tons of favors to accommodate buyers!) This creates stress. Couple that with my sore back and knee and it could be a major disaster. I'm disappointed in the fact that the combination of stressors has lead me to revert to my former eating habits. My eating pattern, this past week, has not measured up to the goals I've set for myself.
So.......What do I do?
Do I throw in the towel and give myself permission to go on a month long eating frenzy? NO!
Do I beat myself up over it? NO!
Do I hide because I'm ashamed? Tempting but NO!
Do I lament my poor eating lapse and live in the past? NO!
Do I indulge in a pity party or self loathing? A struggle but NO!
Do I have to start over? NO!
Do I pull myself up buy my bootstraps and get back on my plan? YES!
Do I make a huge effort to love myself as I am? YES, YES, YES!
Do I forgive myself for the lapse in judgment and move forward? YES, YES, YES!
I can do this! I am worth the effort it takes to get and stay healthy!
Thanks for reading my self pep talk! I feel much better and am actually motivated to stay on track (at least for today)!
Little steps at a time add up to big changes!
