Why do you make promises to yourself and then let self-sabotage, fear, and/or procrastination steal your dreams?
What is it that slyly sneaks in and changes your mind?
Why do you sometimes feel helpless and hopeless?
I have been struggling with this the last few days. I had been very good about being able to control my eating.
But the last few days has had me breaking a lot of my dieting rules.
For instance…It is NOT ok to eat a quarter bag of chocolate chips in one sitting. It is NOT ok to share a bag of donuts with my granddaughter.
Well, if there is any good new at least the scale stayed the same…oh, but talk about water retention! Ughh!
Slipping back into my old habits can be easy if I don’t frequently remind myself that I Create My Life Today. That I am in control. That I promise myself to reach my goals.
I need to remind myself to repeat this to myself throughout the day…NOT just when the sugar monster is doing its dance.
Repetition and Reminding are how the Inner Critic changes.
Have something that you can keep in front of you that reminds you of your promise to yourself.
Peace & Love,
P.S. I am learning how to make mugs, shirts, jewelry, etc… I recently made this mug that reminds me of my promises to myself. https://www.gearbubble.com/ipromisemetm
