My Beck card for today:
"EVERY TIME I eat something I'm not supposed to, I strengthen my giving-in habit. EVERY TME I don't give in, I strengthen my resistance habit."
The capitals are hers, not mine.
I've noticed that when I practice my resistance muscle, it actually gets easier and easier to do so. It's like a "streak". I also notice that once I "give in", it's easier to keep giving in. That's like a negative streak!
This is a mystery to me, but I guess it's the law of physics that says "A body in motion tends to stay in motion. A body at rest tends to stay at rest."
So I guess EVERY TIME really matters. Not because specific calorie count so much, but because of the chain of events it inevitably kicks off.
