In my last session with Dr. G, I was explaining to her how I wanted to be at the finish line now. I don’t have time or patience for this “process” to work out. 😉 She smirked at me & told me, “That’s not how it works.”
Dammit, Dr. G. Why not? 😉
She also said:
You’re making a lot of positive changes in your life. I know you want to be better now but studies have shown a slower process is more likely to be permanent. And we want this to be permanent. Just stay consistent & you’ll see the changes.
Huh… okay, she’s right…
I don’t need to set up these crazy goals. I just need to keep moving forward. I’ve got good traction. I’ve got great momentum going. I don’t need to kill it but setting myself up for failure.
Dr. G told me to scale back my goals. I need to take things slower. So, in following her advice, that’s what I’m gonna do. She said it’s the little daily changes that’ll build up into something wonderful.
All I have to do is be consistent. Keep drinking a lot of water. Keep taking my vitamins & meds. Keep going to the gym. Keep making good food choices (or start making better choices – let’s be honest, SC). Keep giving yourself permission to rest. Keep laughing & loving others. Keep eliminating drama-mamas & their stress.
Just. Keep. Going.
