I think there was or is a card game by that name but I've never played it and I don't even know the rules. It's one of those words that the more you say it the stranger it sounds. Sometimes I feel like it should be the title to my personal them song.
I started analyzing the word and realized that there might be a way to turn a setback into a positive thing. What if when I experience a setback I take a moment to set (sit) back and reflect on my goals, my plan for reaching them and what actually causes my setbacks.
What happened yesterday? Setback. Not a major one, it was afterall only one day. But I know myself and one day turns into two or three and then my bad days out"weigh" the good. I think I was just having too much fun to care. I definitely let myself get too hungry. There was a serious lack of grab and go healthy snacks at home to take the edge off.
What can I do today to prevent another setback? Go home and cut up those veggies to snack on, pick up some snacks to put in my desk at work so I don't leave the office hungry.

    My husband's family introduced me to the card game Setback. And you know what the interesting thing is about being "set back" in the game? It often happens when you least expect it. Furthermore, there is always an opportunity to regain your ground. Being set back isn't permanent, except when you give up.

    Hang in there!

    True. Got to plan ahead for those snack attacks but make sure there is a little protein with it so it stabilizes your blood sugar. Otherwise, you'll have that gnawing feeling again in no time.
