I love Dorris…

Storm Dorris

I’m sitting here writing this email while storm Dorris is blowing a hooly outside.
Our powers gone out.
If I was the kind of person who went into melt down over somthing like this?
I’d be contemplating which one of the children I’d have to eat first in case we run out of food!
Thankfully we’re not there, yet!
But the eldest has the most meat on the bones though!
Anyway, I’m sure the power will be back on in no time.
But like the odd power cut, I’m often amazed how people go into meltdown.
It’s the same with their training, weight loss or health.
Doing well.
Doing the work.
Creating good habits.
Then…BOOM!
One meal out.
A night out with friends.
They self destruct rather than carry on as normal the next day.
I was working with a group a while ago.
One of the participants seemed to take pride how they’d fallen off the wagon.
Bragging about how much booze and fags they get through.
Like it was some badge of honour!
“I’m going to start fresh 1st March.”
Same person said something similar about 1st January!
If you have a rough couple of days…so what?
Just carry as you were before!
It’s no excuse for self sabotage.
Have a great evening.
