I’m trying to use food as we talked about on OE call but I’m not sure I’m doing it correctly or digging deep enough.
Not great – I went to lunch yesterday. We did a buffet. I decided to eat/overeat and then carried it on the rest of the day. My thought for the day was I’m starting fresh tomorrow, getting back on my protocol and I want it out of my system.
C – Food
T – eat what you want so you can start fresh tomorrow
F – out of control
A – Two trips to the buffet
R – overate
My new story – yes I overate Buffets are not good settings for me. However I did notice the thoughts I was having during the lunch and I saw how they drove my actions and results.
C – food
T – I’ll take more time to notice my thoughts so I can course correct
F – empowered- more in control
A – allow urges, sit with them
R- unanswered urges/stay on protocol
How else would I work with all or nothing mentality?
