We all do.

It’s an inevitable part of getting to your goals.

The key is not to let your failure-induced negative thoughts about yourself define who you are.

Ideally, you want to acknowledge what’s going on. And then move forward without dwelling on the negativity for longer than necessary.

In Good Inside, Dr Becky Kennedy has a mantra when parenting moments have us feeling disappointed or mad in our reactions:

“I am not my latest behaviour. I am not my latest behaviour.”

It’s a fitting mantra for when struggling with health and fitness-related behaviours too.


ps. “failure” is probably a harsh word to use here. But it did make for a captivating headline.
