I think this is the biggest obstacle to meeting health goals – compliance with your program. What do you do when you go back to old habits – and sabotage your health goals? I struggled with this personally for a long, long time and found my own solutions. However, I am always trying to learn more about what others do to overcome long-term patterns of self-sabotage. Thanks!
To overcome self-sabotage, how about shrinking the problem, and acquiring a new skill instead? Write down your goals; maybe it’s fat loss, and perhaps you’ve written down 1. Eat less 2. Move more 3. Eat clean 4. Stop eating sugar.
These are all principles, so now cross them off your list. Replace all 4 of these principles with an action. You could say, perhaps: Walk for 30 minutes every morning. Replacing your “principle” with an action not only relinquishes guilt, but gives you a game plan.You can stop patterns of self-sabotage, all you need is action!
