All or Nothing Thinking

I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving and were surrounded with friends, family, loved ones and, of course, yummy food. I am sure we all indulged a bit but I hope none of you are feeling guilty about the food choices you made. If you overate, just remember that tomorrow is a new day. One meal or snack is not going to do you in. It is the diet mentality of “I blew it so I might as well quit trying”. You’ll never get anywhere with all or nothing thinking because none of us will ever be “perfect” (whatever that is!). Be kind to yourself, have realistic expectations, and realize that being healthy comes one day at a time.

How do you get back on track?
