Do you self sabotage, even when it’s going well? If so, you’re not alone.
Things are going along great, you’ve lost weight, your clothes are loose, and you might even need to go shopping. People stop you and say, “something’s different about you,” but they don’t know what, but you do!
Then you start to slip. You skip exercise more often. You give in at dinner to the pleas of “have a life” from friends who think you look fine.
Or maybe for you it’s different.
You are doing everything right. You eat what you are supposed to and you exercise, but you’re still not seeing any change. The scale is not budging and you feel like every day is struggle. Everyone around you seems to do this easily, but not you. So you say, “forget it.” You are miserable trying, and happier when you are not putting in so much effort.
Self-Sabotage Happens to All of Us
There are five reasons we sabotage ourselves and I share them and the solutions in Episode Two. If you’re ready to take that leap into learning how to customize the right answers for you, then watch this episode. You’ll also get a special promo code you can use to jump in with both feet to my online course. The secret is, there isn’t a secret. The answers are there if you let them unfold.
In this episode I show you how to pull together:
- what you eat
- how you move
- how you sleep
- how you deal with stress
- how you rest
- which hormones might be off
…into a whole-you program that’s less of a struggle, and will help you to get your body happy again. Your body, mind, and soul all have to be on the same page. When that happens, your body wants to be at its best weight. It’s easier, more efficient, and even your body wants the path of least resistance.
On the Hook
We spend a lot of time believing we don’t want to be on the hook. Truthfully, the only way things get done is because we have deadlines, appointments, and due dates. In other words, we’re on the hook. We get things done when there’s not another option.
Sometimes without a reason to show up, we lie to ourselves. We say we’re going to exercise more, eat better, quit sugar… but when we aren’t compelled to, our old-habit-gravity over-powers us. We can too easily defer to our comfort zones and before you know it, self sabotage has occurred.
You will get all the details of overcoming self-sabotaging behaviors by watching this episode. After you watch, consider ways you have been sabotaging yourself and your progress.
