|Argh, I slipped!|
And sometimes we need to have that binge, that blow out weekend where we say 'to hell with it, I'm in this mood and I need this and this'. That's fine. In fact, that's only human. The trick is to recognise it and stop the slip becoming a slide.
|Get thee behind me Sugar monster!|
Yesterday I intended on going to the gym but found the programme I had written for myself was doable on the equipment I have at home. So a full 1hr 30 min session with long stretch was done and the gym room cleaned ready for my first clients next week. I also gave myself a stern talking to and reminded myself that although this weekend had been over indulgent, it was just one weekend out of 52 and that I obviously needed to cave to emotional eating. March proved to be a tough old month with Easter weekend as my only real weekend off, and even then it wasn't a true weekend off as the business kicks off next week so much was done to move towards the launch.
|It really is ok to start over!|
So yesterday my emotional eating trigger got a bollocking, and today I feel far more positive and back to my usual happy self. I've had my slip, got a little bruised from the fall, and picked myself up, dusted myself off and looking towards a bright shiny new week....my last one in the full time grind (that might also explain the week starting out in a very positive fashion ;) )
So slip, don't slide, give yourself a break for having the slip, mark it down to one of those days and then get back on then healthy wagon as quickly as you can. You will soon notice the slips become far less frequent andthe slide non-existant.
Have a great week all and as always, be kind to yourself
