Teach after surgery, radiation and ongoing chemotherapy? I realized I could ONLY do what was important to help my students learn. 4 years later, I still ask, "Is this cookie important to my health?" "Is sitting in the recliner important to my goals?"
Sometimes the answer is yes, sometimes no.
The point is, I now actually decide before I just DO IT. I now eat lots of F & V. My 45 minute fitness streak gets longer daily!
Is it important? The choice is mine. What choices are you making?
To REALLY make this strategy work, you have to know what is deep-down important to you. For me, it's my health so the SP Nutrition Tracker is super helpful.
Make your Deep-Down Important list and create your visualization poster. Evaluate what you do based on that poster.

I am always hungry because I am used to overeating. When I was doing Jenny Craig my consultant asked what would happen if I was hungry. She reminded me that I am not starving to death, and I will still be able to eat my next snack or meal. Being hungry won't kill me, or even cause any long term problems. It's okay if I'm hungry sometimes, meeting my goal is more important!
