[New Year, New You] Day 3: Rollercoasters, Bandwagons and Other Myths of Existence

We’re back for another dose of what you need most–encouragement and straight talk on what it takes to make it to the other side of overwhelm and frustration when you’re setting out to make your goals and objective stick for the new year. Today is Day 3 of our New Year, New You Challenge and I’m so excited and thankful to be receiving feedback and comments from many of you already! Thank you for taking the time to share yourself and your experiences with me. I LOOOOVE it when you put comments in the blog, or send me an email! Thank you!!

Yesterday we talked about the importance of facing big obstacles with small steps, and being able to acknowledge the journey. Today we’re going to take that conversation just a little bit further and discuss a common idea in the area of self-help, and certainly food, diet and nutrition, that trips people up and wastes enormous amounts of time, attention and energy! The idea of falling off the “bandwagon” or “slipping backward” is often used to express regret or frustration with where we’re at (or where we’re not at), but it has no bearing in fact and actually is more harm than good. To deny that one is moving forward, learning more, trying harder is unkind to yourself and just cosmically impossible in this universe.

There are some really important ideas to understand about why it sometimes feels like you’re moving backward in this podcast, and some great tips and suggestions for keeping things in perspective and making your results happen even faster. I want to start by sharing with you what I believe is probably THE most unproductive, time-wasting and energy-sucking thing you do.

And you probably don’t even realize you’re doing it! You probably think it’s “normal.”You can read about it here on the blog.

Thanks for being here!

    Wow, so true. The disappointments and the failures of the present are magnified because of the disappointments and failures of the past. So it makes sense to stay present, but it’s not always easy to do so. And I love your tag line — you are as alive as you are willing to communicate. 🙂
