Wednesday Sabotage: I’m going to just give in and eat [this unplanned food] because I don’t want to think about dieting right now.
Response: There’s no such thing as not thinking about it, just delaying thinking about it. If I choose to ‘not think about it’ now and eat off my plan, I’ll definitely think about it later when I’m regretting it. If I choose to think about it now and put in the effort to resist, I get to feel really proud of myself later. But either way I’m going to think about it.
