Resistance Habit

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

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.

    We like to fool ourselves and think, "this doesn't matter" but yes it does. It matters and it really matters. Maybe that would stop us in our tracks if we say to ourselves, "This really, really matters and I need to think about what I'm doing right now."

    That is sooooooooooo true!! The thing is not giving in... The worst part is that often I don't realize I'm "giving in " until it's done... and then the "dance" starts... But, good news,... I've been exercising the resistance muscle for a few days now! Thanks for that reminder TG!
