Is anyone else a bit like me? Have an all or nothing attitude. I wish I wasn’t like this I really do, but for some reason there is a part of me that thinks ‘if I’m going to be good, I’m going to be really good – unbreakable in fact’ which in theory works well, except on the flip side if I’m bad…I’m really bad.
For the last couple of months I’ve been running – almost daily around four miles, which I would consider is pretty good really. Not everyday, because, well to be frank I’m not a machine, but I run on average around 18 miles a week. This is all well and good until something happens that prevents me from running said mileage – be it a cold, work commitments or our very active social life, but whatever it is, if for whatever reason I stop running, that’s it – game over. I eat and drink whatever I want and coupled with the lack of exercise just means I pile on the pounds and piling on the pounds means what? I get down.
I really wish I wasn’t like this, but I wonder …is anyone else an ‘all or nothing’ person?
