The following is is an excerpt from a fitness blogger, she’s talking about slipping when trying to eat clean and break a sugar habit/addiction. But whether it’s a slip back into old eating habits, relationships or comfort zones, the principle remains the same —dust yourself off and forge ahead. Training is a lifestyle and we train for life.
All is not lost if you have a slip. Keep moving forward. Go back to your original notes about why you’re doing this, and how badly you feel after that sugar binge.
Don’t bullshit yourself with navel-gazing, self-pitying stuff like, “Oh, now it doesn’t matter because I’ve already screwed up, I’m such a failure, I might as well just lie here and die, blah blah blah.”
