Question: Why is it that we KNOW what to do, but we struggle with actually DOING it??
Answer: It’s because of CRAP VOICES getting in our way. We have inner “mean girls” who work to sabotage our efforts. They push us off track with our eating & exercise intentions.
The Sabotaging VOICES
(I bet these sound familiar…)
>>The Negotiator says: “This one time won’t matter. It’s just a little. You’ve had a bad day, you need this. You can make it up tomorrow.”
>>The Pessimist says: “Why suffer, this isn’t gonna work. You’ll never get to where you want, it’s hopeless so might as well stop trying.”
>>The Perfectionist says: “You screwed up & undid all of your efforts, nothing good you do matters now. Forget it, just start all over tomorrow/Monday/etc.”
So…WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT THESE?
Much of the common advice is to talk back & argue with these voices. BUT here’s a better idea next time you hear one of these VOICES:
Don’t waste your time and energy going back & forth with these “mean girl” VOICES.
Instead tell them:
“Zip it, I’m the BOSS.
And I won’t be sabotaged.”
PRACTICE this regularly and you will feel MORE empowered & LESS frustrated with your healthy eating & exercise habits.
This is the success mindset you need to reach your wellness goals LIKE. A. BOSS. xoxo
