Since your self-sabotaging thinking may be “hiding out” at an unconscious or semi-conscious level, it can be tricky to ID. So here’s a client-tested technique for exposing your “hidden” SSBs to the light of day.
As a Personal Trainer/Master coach I have seen it all before and when you find yourself about to do some eating that you know in your heart isn’t healthy do these three things:
1. Ask yourself: How am I “justifying” this unhealthy behavior? What am I saying to myself that makes it “OK” to do what I know I should not be doing?”
2. If that doesn’t quite do it, then ask yourself: “What would a person have to think in order to behavethis way?”
3. If you’re still stuck, imagine that you’re watching somebody else about to do some eating they know is unhealthy, and ask yourself: “What would a person have to think in order to act that way?”
Here are another seven popular examples. Do any of these sound familiar?
