A Common Barrier: Commitment Issues

Changing my eating habits is overwhelming. I'm scared to commit because I'm afraid to fail. How do I get over this feeling?

I truly love this question, and the truth is so many people feel this way.

Let's talk about it.

There is this pressure that gets put on making health changes that it needs to be an all or nothing situation, but the truth of the matter is... it's better if it's NOT all or nothing.

Yes, that's what I said.

Setting yourself up for long-term success means making manageable changes. Changes that you know you can stick to long term.

If you jump in with an all or nothing mindset, it can be easy to want to quit or feel like a failure if you enjoy a meal that isn't on your plan.

Instead of looking at making changes to your health as an all or nothing situation, let's break it down into manageable steps.

Start with one change at a time. Once you feel like you get the hang of that change, add one more in. Here are a few ideas:

Go for a walk, 15 minutes a day.

Hit a daily water goal

Add in a vegetable to one meal a day.

Drink one less pop (or soda) a day.

Reduce fast food to one meal a week.

Plan & prep your meals for a week of breakfast OR lunch. Remember, one step at a time.

Swap out a vending machine snack with a piece of fruit.

By making small changes over time, this will add up to long-term results. Sure, you can go all in and try and make these changes at once... but it's easy to get overwhelmed and want to give up. If you still feel overwhelmed or don't know where to start, email me at and let's come up with a plan.
