I’m sure everyone who has ever taken a moment to think about it knows that embedded habits are hard to break. So, why would you think that after a few months of perfect eating habits those old nasty ones are gone forever? Even with the experience of what it feels like to fit in your skinny jeans, sleep well and having more energy than you know what to do with, you forget and serve up a sugary snack! Why?! Our habits take over in times of mindless-ness or stress.
Ever have this happen to you? Everything is going great in the show pen. You are in control, your horse is reading the cow and it feels like you are making a run at the pay window…then comes a bad cow. Yikes! Things are going fast…no time to think…STRESS! Here come those old bad habits that you have been working so hard to get past and you’re right back to leaning and gripping. (Oh, just me huh?) Yup, those old bad habits are just waiting for a stressful situation to rear up to think that they were invited back. Good news!! As you learn strong healthy habits, they can come back just as easily. Without giving much thought, you walk right past the foods that are bad for you to look over what’s available to fuel up in a hurry! Just like practicing for show day, time and a little positive focus teaches you strong habits to move you toward the desired outcome. You’ll be working tough cows with confidence and junk food is back in the past!
