After a less-than-stellar-but-entirely-as-expected holiday weekend, I’m ready to get back into Normal Cammy Rhythm. Thus, I have selected the above as my mantra o’ the week. I’m entirely open to sharing it, if you’re so inclined.
It’s sometimes easy after a holiday to feel that we strayed too far away from our intentions. For some, those feelings of failure fuel a slide into outright surrender–never mind that we had likely experienced many successes before that point in time. (I did, in almost all my previous attempts at losing weight.)
A much better idea (and ever so much more enjoyable) in times of struggle is to take a few moments to focus on the positive changes we’ve made and to use those successes to regain or strengthen our faith in ourselves and in our abilities to achieve our goals.
And yes, it’s perfectly acceptable to borrow a success from one life category until you have some built up. I do it all the time.
I do believe we can do this, don’t you?
