That is all :smile:
"All or Nothing"?
Does anyone else struggle to get out of an "all or nothing" mindset when it comes to staying on track? I've been on MFP for over a year, but it has been very much of a yo-yo. I've heard someone equate this habit of, "Well I already did XXX so I might as well XXX" to smashing your phone on the ground and stomping on it just…
Week of Temptation
So here's the deal: All of next week I'm going to be on set for a commercial shoot. In the past, here is how they go: EARLY morning call-times (meaning no morning run). Free breakfast (usually burritos or something egg/bacon-y). Free morning snacks. Free ELABORATE lunches. Free afternoon snacks (available fruit, but then…

It's really a problem. I'm not even talking about the occasional drive-thru, I've gotten to the point where…
