coming back after you've fallen off with real food
in this post we'll give you our best advice for getting back on track after falling off, whether it was one event or an extended period of time.
what does falling off mean?
when we say "fallen off" this implies that you are off right now and want to get back on! so whether it's been 1 meal, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, or longer, if you're off you're off! and you need to get back on. we want to help.
some of our values are very relevant to falling off and coming back. for a refresher on our values, watch or listen to this post / podcast.
sit down and think for a moment - when did this first happen? what was the situation that led to the cascade of events that got you here? where was it? when did it happen? is this something that may happen in the future that you can somewhat predict and plan for?
honesty with ourselves is one of the keys to progress. we must stop rationalizing, get real and be honest about where we are, how we feel, where we fell off, and what we need to do to get better.
it's difficult when we are in the funk, in the fog, feeling off, to have positive conversations. but this is exactly what we must do. this is where the deep work comes. it's easy to be positive and happy when everything is going our way and we're feeling great. we need to carry that with us into the darker moments.
anytime we want to do anything we have to see it first. it's the way we work. to be successful with getting back on it, we have to see ourselves doing it, and feeling how good it feels to be back on it. this plants the seed to do the right thing at the right time. just like visualizing a perfect squat helps facilitate doing a perfect squat when we actually do it, visualizing yourself doing the right thing, and imagining how it feels, facilitates it. once we see it and feel it enough, we've planted the seed for it, and it is inevitable that we will do move in the direction of doing what we continue to see on a regular basis.
