Do you set strict goals for yourself and become upset when they are not met, including in regard to your food choices and meal plans?
The truth is, when the reality of a holiday, vacation, or intuitive eating experience fails to match the pictures you had in your head or falls short of your ideal; it can lead to a letdown.
Being ambitious and setting goals is great. And having expectations isn’t bad, but harboring disappointment about how things turn out can lead you to want to throw in the towel and start living with a “whatever” attitude, which will never pave the way to your dream life.
Newsflash, the struggle is real, and you’re not alone. We talk a lot about this topic in the SociEATy.
So how can you learn to manage your expectations so you are not wholly derailed when things don’t turn out the way you plan?
In this episode, I’m sharing the honest and unfiltered truth of two recent experiences where I had high expectations, but the reality left me feeling let down and the breakthrough conversation that helped me change my mindset.
Listen in as I walk you through how to avoid getting sucked into the suck when you veer from your intuitive eating plan.
I share some of the strategies I use with SociEATy members to help them set intuitive eating goals, get results, and manage expectations when setbacks, such as bingeing, occur. (The reality is we’re human, and they can. That’s normal). Plus, how you can get support when they do.
Truth bomb, goals are integral to achieving what we want in life! So let’s dive into learning how to control our emotions when things do not go as planned to achieve more success with intuitive eating and in ALL aspects of our lives.
