allowing yourself to fail
Wednesday, January 24, 2018
fail?? Did we hear that right? to be successful at losing and keeping weight off you need to allow yourself to fail?
Yes, I read it right and yes, it is necessary to learn how to fail and keep moving on. For any life goal you want to succeed at
Another important reason for journaling, to track what you did and observe what worked and what didn't. we are keeping track of the positive to keep doing it and the negative to learn from it!
Does this mean you should set goals for failure? no and you should not lose the progress you made because you failed at one task or goal. So many times, we allow a failure to drag us out of every good habit we have made. Example: Oh, I ate a donut today because we found a new shop and just had to have one! the next day, you say oh well I had a donut, might as well have some fries and cola today! NO! we don't have to do that. We can have the donut and still proceed on.
Positive solutions or changes:
Have a donut. adjust your snacks and meals the rest of the day.
Have a donut. next day you keep to your planned eating and forget about the donut you had yesterday because you logged it and forgot about it.
Today, let's make a pledge to accept failure as part of our goals. Let's look for ways to make those failures work in our daily life and become a snowflake in a blizzard instead of the blizzard we can't see through.
