"Fall down seven times, get up eight."
"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment."
"The present is what slips past us while we're pondering the past and worrying about the future"
"Donít lie to yourself about your exercise and food choices. If you eat some empty calories, thatís totally fine, but donít convince yourself that you didnít have that much or that you are undoing it at the gym. Own your decisions and donít feel ashamed."
