That is a powerful question and one that can be used in a lot of situations.
Let's paint a picture.
You’ve had a bad day. Work sucked, and the kids are driving you mad. You finally get them to bed and decide that alcohol and snacks are what is required. Sound familiar?
So, you could indeed have the drinks and the snacks, and there is nothing wrong with that. But you need to make peace with the fact that doing so will move you further away from the goal that you have set yourself.
Ask yourself; “Am I happy with that fact?”
If the answer is yes, then carry on - enjoy the food or drink and don’t feel guilty or bad for doing so.
If the answer is no, then you have a couple of choices;
Don’t partake in the snack or drink (very boring, and not advised - unless doing so will cause huge problems with your progress).
Partake in the activity - enjoy it for what it is, and manipulate your calories over the next few days to reign in the over-consumption. Removing a breakfast, or a couple of snacks, on the days before or after, will solve the issue.
Your journey needs to use methods that you can stick to longterm.
Removing yourself from social situations and not having the things you want is a sure-fire way of you getting fed up with your journey and giving up. I want you to learn sustainable methods that will serve you for the rest of your life, giving you the power to control your emotions and feelings around your food.
