It’s been a little over 1 week since I last wrote. It’s also been 3 weeks into New Year’s Resolution season and I am beginning to see the typical crumble and cracking of those once exciting commitments to change. It’s normal. It’s the human condition. I think what’s hard for me to witness as Nutritionist/Fitness Expert and all-around Professional Motivator is the disappointment. Not my disappointment. I’m speaking of the cycle of change and the normal phase of stumbling and frustration that happens as we set goals and attempt to achieve them. We experience barriers. That’s when I witness people’s disappointment. Again, normal. It’s how we react to the disappointment that determines whether or not we stick with our commitment to change. We can either get stuck in it or we can whine about it for a little bit and then let it go and try again. I vote for reaction #2. Allow yourself 1 Whine per day. Then, stop whining and keep trying.
Try with those really small steps every single day. Trust me, they do lead to change.
