I get it. Maybe if you could just be perfect all the time, you’d see results, right?
NO. YOU’RE HUMAN. STOP TELLING YOURSELF NOT TO BE.
You’re not self-sabotaging on the weekends and holidays because you’re a failure.
You’re self-sabotaging because you need some fun.
As a fellow type-A perfectionist and goal-oriented female, you can trust me when I say this: the harsh deadlines and goals you set for your business, career, and team do not apply to your body and health.
Your body and brain and cannot be manipulated like your Google calendar: perfectly color-coordinated, time-blocked, managed to a T.
Your needs are far more complex than that.
The key to stop self-sabotaging your weight loss journey is to make the journey a lot more fun and less picture-perfect.
If you had some FUN during the week, you wouldn’t feel the need to totally let loose as soon as you get a break from the systems and rules you’ve put in place for yourself.
You overdo it on the weekends because adults need fun too.
So before you let the food guilt creep in and tell yourself whatever mean thing you usually tell yourself after letting loose on the weekends, think about this: what if you STOPPED being so hard on yourself and had a little more fun?
As adults, we tend to stop doing activities we enjoy and food becomes our only source of fun. This is LAME, but true.
