Short, short post this morning. I’m having intermittent “server issues”, and I don’t know how long I’ll have access to my account.
So many times we of the weight loss persuasion see weekends as danger zones for over-eating or otherwise going off our plans. I’m challenging myself (and YOU) to spend more time imagining ourselves being successful, than we do fretting about our missteps. As the saying goes, What you see is what you get. If our view of ourselves includes the words weak or undisciplined, we set ourselves up to fulfill that view. (IMO, of course.) If, however, we see ourselves as fully capable of making good decisions (whether that’s to avoid eating a certain food or deciding that it’s worth a splurge), then we’re far, far more likely to follow that path. Or at least stay close enough that we can see it.
I’m taking a few minutes this morning to imagine the events of the upcoming weekend and visualize myself as the strong-willed (some would say stubborn), fully capable person I am, and how those qualities will serve me well. I hope you’ll join me in spending even a teensy bit of time considering your own strengths and how they will help you through the days ahead.
Have an awesome weekend!
