No Room for the “All or Nothing” Mentality

Hello and happy Monday, everyone! Today starts Week 3 of getting back on track in July. Week 2 had a lot more curve balls than Week 1, but I still did really great overall! My goal is to lose weight while living life and that’s exactly what was done this past week.

I lost two pounds in Week 2, bringing my total to 6 pounds in July! I didn’t track every meal in Week 2, and I didn’t reach my water goals every day, but I did my best at keeping an eye on moderation and drinking as much water as I could. 

Most importantly, I didn’t give up when things didn’t go exactly as planned. Instead, I readjusted and continued on!

Going into this week, I am reminding myself of the 80/20 rule. There is no room for an “all or nothing” mentality when it comes to losing weight sustainably. I will try my best to eat within moderation and my nutritional goals 80% of the time. Grace will cover all the rest, followed by my perseverance to continue on despite the “success” of each day.

Make it a great week, everyone!

  1. The 80-20 rule is a huge one! All or nothing definitely doesn’t work for me!!!!
