Do you constantly diet, feel super motivated and suddenly — out of nowhere — comes a craving? You give in to it and your resolve is gone. “I cheated” say those voices in your head, feel like a failure – so what the heck? I might as well eat more and worry about it later.”
If you value yourself — and authentic health and happiness — than starving, bingeing, and over-exercising certainly seems to go against those values.
What are values?
Values are the core aspect of who we are as people. We drive our kids to soccer and attend all their baseball games because family is a core value. We spend hours cramming for an exam because we know deep in our hearts that we value education and want to attend a good college. We get out of bed to earn a living because we value being a productive member of society. Our actions are all driven by the values we hold near and dear.
