This is a short message to anyone who is having issues with slipping back in to bad eating habits, myself included.
Sometimes things that are going on around us and things that we have no control over can have a definite effect on what we choose to eat.
There are so many contributing factors to why we can’t seem to let certain foods go or why we slip back into our old ways when we know better.
I had some relatives visit me this weekend and when we went for dinner, I pretty much ate like they ate. My uncle loves to eat and I try to hang with him, but I just can’t.
I knew better, but, I slipped anyway. It doesn’t help when you have your relatives saying you need to eat, stop depriving yourself, and here’s the big one, you need to add a little weight.
The funny thing is that I think I do need to add some weight, but not too much. I know that all I have to do is increase my food intake.
I am not beating myself up for it. I will not stop playing in the game, instead, I will get back in the game and keep playing.
I may have to take timeout to regroup to get back on track, but I am in it to win it, and I will not quit.
Take Time-Out to Regroup
If you are off your game, don’t stop playing and don’t let a few set-backs break you. Instead devise your game plan and get back in the game. You may have to play the game a little differently, but no matter what, you must keep playing.
You may ask, “How do I regroup?” Here are some ways you can regroup and get back in the game:
- Pray for guidance and direction.
- Gradually get back in the game and don’t do things so fast. Take your time.
- Revisit those books and documentaries that inspired and helped you make changes.
- Realize that you are you and that you can’t do everything that everybody else does. You must play your game the way that is best for you.
- Regroup and start again when you are ready.
