A weekly message to strengthen your CORE and develop your resolve.
July 10, 2013
I know what to eat, I just don’t do it! How many times have you said that or heard someone else say it?
The key to change is not in the science of nutrition and exercise; it’s in our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about food, eating and health. To make lasting changes we have to work from the inside out and learn what really drives our eating. It’s what happens between the bites that determines when, where, what, and how much we eat in the future.
This week I want to look at one of our biggest sabotaging between the bites thought patterns… the ever popular all or none thinking. You may recognize it as the voice that says, “If I can’t lose all my weight this month, I won’t do anything”, or “If I can’t workout for an hour everyday, I just won’t work out at all”, or “I already had a bite of this, so I might as well eat it all”. Sound familiar? All or none thinking has it’s roots in perfectionism and is a set up to fail before we even begin!
What are some of your favorite all or none thought patterns? Watch carefully this week and when you recognize them, switch to a more realistic way of thinking that will allow you to accomplish your goals!
Food for Thought…
All or Nothing thinking says, “You either do this perfectly, or you don’t even bother.” It’s one of the biggest blocks to making positive changes in your life. It’s one of the biggest blocks to making your life work at all.
