I admit, there’s more days than I’d like to admit where I feel like I failed at my ‘healthy eating’. (I try not to call it a diet.) I’m still susceptible to eating JUNK when I’m stressed or if I get too hungry and haven’t planned well.
I know I”m not alone. I get emails and messages about it all the time. It’s tempting to give up after having a rough go at mealtime for a few days…or weeks. But I have to remind myself – and I’m reminding you, that a few bad meals or a few bad days or weeks…does not mean you should give up. It does NOT negate all the hard work you’ve been through. Actually the same goes for missing workouts. Maybe you worked out religiously for 2 weeks but then you just sort of lost interest and haven’t done anymore for 2 weeks. You haven’t failed! Those 2 weeks you did complete are still with you. Just get back to it and be kind to yourself. The most important thing is to get your mind back in the game and just START again.
I created the poster below based on what I tell myself and what I try to pass along to you guys. Feel free to share on Pinterest, Facebook, or wherever you’d like. I think we all need to be reminded of it now and again.
Have you ever given up on a fitness program or a diet because you felt like you’d failed after having some bad days/weeks?
