So you’ve missed four days of working out or you ate the entire bag of chips because you were starving. After mishaps like these many people instantly get down on themselves, but that's a bad idea.
Feeling sorry for yourself or even being slightly depressed because you feel like you’ve failed can lead to more overeating and the repetition of other bad habits!
Miss a workout? Forget about it! Just make sure to go the next day. In fact, hopefully you have implemented some motivational boosters along the way and installed a support group to make sure you get back up on that horse.
Don’t feel sorry for yourself, pick yourself back up and take action; that’s where the real growth (mental and physical) happens!
