Every healthy choice is an affirmation of my goals. I am not certain I have ever put this in words but it is a concept that is frequently thought. When eating I think of how the food will fuel my activities and nurture my body. When I workout I feel grateful to have strength, flexibility and stamina to move with ease.
When I began this journey I often thought of Richard Bach's quote
"Argue for your limitations and sure enough, they're yours." This helped banish excuses and squelch negative thoughts
