Fight the Fright

After stalling over the last month, the inner mind conversation started to sound a little bit frantic.

“I am not on track. I’m losing steam. I don’t care as much as I used to.

What? Are you kidding me? You can’t afford to slow up now you’re nowhere near your goals?

You’re right.  I need to make up for lost time.  I should do the  [redacted] DIET™ and workout three times a day”

But that’s not how I have lost over 35 lbs so far.  And it’s the type of thinking I’m trying to avoid— because it’s short-sighted, unhealthy—pretty much a bad idea.

So far this week I’m going back to the fundamentals:

  • early morning workout to set the day right and boost metabolism
  • stay under my calorie budget
  • drink water like I’m in the desert

Keeping it simple.

  1. Very smart! I see so many people go overboard–rocketing back and forth between doing nothing and everything.

  2. Hi Chris! Read my post up right now on my blog. It is all about not getting highly emotional about weight. The emotions play mind games that cause many people to shut down and quit. Channel Nate Silver in your mind. Would Nate follow emotional instinct, or would he use cold-hearted highly calculated facts to be successful? He would definitely use the calculated way. Do your basic formula exactly as you made above, consistently for a really long time (ideally forever), and you’ll see success.

  4. Yes! You came close to all-or-nothing thinking and then stomped it out! Slow and steady wins the race, but we all want speedy. You are inspiring me to enter the race.
