"If what you are doing isn't giving you the results you expect..."

I'm blogging about it here because *I* can use this reminder in so many ways. I am more than a little bit guilty of being stubborn and thick-headed. I take it personally when things don't work out when, instead, I should look at what else might be a better approach. A prime example: Feeling like a failure if I cannot perform my idea of a full workout. C'mon now, what's wrong with 10-20 minute segments a few times a day, Trish? Maybe try a shortened workout in the morning and take an extra long walk on the way home? Sheesh, it's not THAT complicated!

"How long would you be willing to try something new before deciding you need to re-evaluate your situation?"

Change IS good, but it seems sooner might be even better!

    I've been feeling the same way lately. It's hard to rethink something you thought was just fine.

    "Feeling like a failure if I cannot perform my idea of a full workout." I soooo hear this! I think I used to be more of a perfectionist about these things than I am now, but I do tend to feel like I didn't do it "right" when I don't burn enough calories or something.

    The good part is, recognizing something is the first step to overcoming it!
