Was Your Holiday Binge Worth it?
January 2020 is coming to a close, and many people still in “holiday” mode, meaning they haven’t stopped overeating foods, haven’t stopped eating junk food, still drinking alcohol, and many people are either not making it to the gym or not doing much if they are in the gym. Bad habits are hard to break, once you start, it may not be easy to quit. Best advice is never to do anything that is dangerous and addicting. We know better 😉, or at least some of us do 😊
Was your holiday binge worth it? If you have wasted months of “progress” and “gains” away for the sake of “enjoying” the holiday season, well, not only is this not a good use of time, getting in and out of shape, yo-yo dieting, and what I also call yo-yo fitness, is a dangerous practice indeed that is linked to many of the most serious health ailments. Investing hundreds and thousands of hours getting in great health only to “have fun” destroying your health during the holidays is cause for deep concern. No one that lives authentically and loves themselves would engage in such behavior.
Watching so many people that have let themselves go during the holiday season, and many that haven’t stopped the bad behaviors, I see sadness, I see frustration, disappointment, and I see broken people that seem to have lost control of themselves, and are relapsing to past old habits of letting things in their life that only makes them worse.
Knowing the difference between “pleasure” and “happiness” , what is “good” and “bad” for you, what you “allow” and “don’t” allow in your life, and what makes you “worse” and what makes you “better”, is a great personal insurance to living your best self. Do nothing to make yourself worse, do everything to make yourself better.
‘Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.’ (George Santayana-1905)
If something has made you “bad” in the past, it will certainly make you bad again in the future if you allow it. Learn from experience. Don’t let history repeat itself when it comes to making yourself worse. You are what you allow. Garbage in, garbage out.
Say NO to anything that makes you worse. 100% out of your life forever.
