October 24, 2012 – Wednesday Sabotage

Sabotaging Thought: It’s okay to eat this because I’m working out later and will burn it off.

Response: I can’t rely on “burning it off later” as an effective way to reduce calories because not only is it possible I’ll end up skipping my workout, but likely I also overestimate the number of calories I burn while exercising, anyway. If I want to lose weight and keep it off, I can’t use the prospect of future exercise as a reasonable excuse to eat something.
