OCC Day 6 – The Strength of Reeling It Back In

Happy Saturday!

How is everyone?

Today, I thought maybe we could strengthen ourselves mentally a bit. It’s one thing to start something and to keep it going. That takes a lot work and a lot of dedication! No doubt a great triumph. But I swear to you it is harder to get back into the groove once you have dropped the ball.

I know it is for me anyway. For example, I planned on doing two weeks of low carb eating followed by two weeks of moderate carb eating. Up until now, I have been doing pretty much the same things day in and day out and it really hasn’t been that difficult to stick to. But then when I tried to switch things up in my diet this week, my brain starts freaking out like I’m screwing up the system haha.

So this post doesn’t have to be for the change you made for this challenge. It could be for anything in your life right now that has kind of fallen by the wayside. Today let’s reel it back in. I think it takes great mental strength to do this and you ladies are brilliant.

Love you all,

      1. I think one of the reasons is fold. A- something about what you were doing was good so you want to do it again. B- something about the same thing made you stop. So when you try and go back to the same thing you always change something. You think you know better or have experience now so you’re going to tweet it. 9 times out of 10 the tweeks make it not the same and your stop again. Marking a circle. So yes I do believe it’s esier to start something new. I hope that made sense.

  1. I have been really good about going to the gym, 4-5 times per week but I need to reel in my eating habits. I agree it’s hard to get back into a groove once you drop the ball. I have been getting into some emotional eating lately because my son will be going to Korea on Feb 20th for a year to teach English. I know it will be a great experience for him but I will miss him terribly (thank goodness for Skype and other messaging apps). I still find myself turning to food to medicate but I have noticed that it’s not as bad as it used to be. I know I will be sad and low initially until I get used to him not being here and I have some good friends who will be there for support.

    1. Oh Christine, Ryan is still little but I can only sympathize in that I am SO sad when I think about Ryan growing up and leaving. I love watching him grow but I still feel this sadness with each milestone. I will pray for comfort for you. As for the emotional eating, it’s a struggle until we start to feel better emotionally but something that has helped with the actual behavior is surprisingly fasting. Make not work for everyone but it kind of breaks the cycle after a time of out of control eating. It feels like a system reboot or something.
