Today I have really been focusing on my decision making. I am stopping before making habit decisions to ask myself if this is a strengthening postition or weakening. Instead of grabbing the candy I asked if this was strengthening my goal for health or weakening. Definitely weakening! I went for yogurt instead. I really didn’t want to exercise this morning, but ask myself about which choice was strengthening. I did my yoga and pilates and felt so much better afterwards.
I really wanted to go out to dinner tonight instead of cooking, but asking the question and knowing I am on a spending fast I took a pizza out of the freezer instead.
By this evening I had forgotten to ask myself and ended up on the couch eating cookies. Hmm.
I think I will continue asking myself this question tomorrow as well.
