When you think of “negotiations”, you probably think of a business deal or a labor dispute. When you think of “The Negotiator”, you probably think of the 1998 Samuel Jackson movie by that name. When it comes to sticking to our health and fitness goals, the real negotiator is often times the person looking back at us in the mirror. Yikes! Inspired by an article written by Nicole Booz, Catherine and Donald take you through the basics of self-negotiation, how to recognize when you’re doing it, and how to begin to call yourself on it. Recognizing your patterns is the first step in lasting behavior change. Plus, Donald is the Crystal Light of men, Catherine gives it a good Hoovering, and sometimes not giving a gift is the greatest gift of all.
