You have heard of the "all or nothing" mentality, but what about "negative lumping" 

It is a similar concept that I do see with a lot of my clients

It is when they dismiss their efforts because they do not hit their target/goal

For example

Someone eats really well all week, but they mess up over the weekend (this happens a lot)

So they dismiss the ENTIRE week, even when their weekday eating was FAR BETTER than usual


The person that decides to train 5 x  a week for a month - but they only average 4 x and they are bummed at 

their "failure" when in fact they did 8 more workout that usual!

Being able to recognise the progress in the "near misses" is vital.

This also couple nicely with the "optimal failure rate"

If we set a target behavior and hit it 100% of the time (zero failure) the bar was set too low and we will likely become bored.

If we only hit the behavior target 50% of the time we can become very discouraged. We set the bar too high.

The optimal failure rate is 15%, in this (very short) podcast, I do the calculation for you


My 21 Day Signature Weight Loss Program starts on Feb 11 - Mar 2

I only run this program once (maybe twice) per year

In 21 days you will understand weight loss and you will understand why you may have struggled in the past
