Note to Self…

11 Comments 1324 views

GO TO BED! If you want to workout tomorrow morning you are gonna have to stop working and hit the hay. You’ve been burning the candle at both ends for far to long. Some of those ideas you have are just gonna have to wait.

Oh! and you didn’t ruin anything by eating the kettle corn tonight. Why are you falling prey to that old all or nothing mentality again? SNAP OUT OF IT!

And oh again! You forgot you to pat yourself on the back last night for feeding your family a healthy dinner. Good job! :)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I also have that all or nothing attitude. Sometimes you really just have to turn off the midnight oil, brush your teeth and lay down.

    All or nothing can sabatoge us. The key is patience, consitency & knowing the journey is a lifestyle change & a change we can live with for life. Hope you got some much needed sleep.

    I’m totally struggling with that all-or-nothing mentality right now. Great note!

    I know all about that kind of all or nothing thinking and it kept me in a cycle of yo – yo dieting for way too many years.

    Now my mindset is that I am living a healthy lifestyle. It isn’t something that I can go off of. Every day I get to make choices about what I eat and how much I eat. Some days those choices are healthier than other days but at the end of the week it all balances out. Knowing that nothing is off limits seems to make a lot of stuff have less appeal then when it was the forbidden fruit.

    The all or nothing is a LIFE destroyer! So is not getting enough sleep. You’re right. Stop it.

    Hey, Roni! I am not struggling with the “all or nothing” attitude, and it’s because of some very good advice I got one time (several times, actually) from —YOU! You planted the idea in my head, and it has grown into a beautiful tree, to which I go often and pick the fruit of “no big deal, every day is just one day of my life, the average will work itself out, maybe eating what I ate today was some release that I needed, and now I can move on.”

    You ate it. Let it go, just like your body will. Don’t let your mind get involved… you are awesome, and you are raising a child who knows what good food is! That is something very special, indeed.

    Reminds me of Moonshine “Snap Out of IT!!!”

    You got it girl, I am struggling with this too, we will prevail !

    um I mean Moonstruck!

    Roni, I always have trouble shutting down at night. It seems to be the time when I am feeling most creative and have ideas that I want to capture.

    It definitely effects my productivity in the morning and I have definitely skipped some workouts due to staying up too late working.
