I have no control over the numbers on the scale. I only control how much physical activity I get and what I choose to ingest.
My progress will be measured by how active I am that day and my food choices. I will not berate myself if my body needs to rest. I will give my body what it needs that day.
I will praise and celebrate my accomplishments a lot and just acknowledge my shortcomings...because I'm not superhuman and I don't need to be perfect.
I will not be unkind to myself. If I wouldn't say it to my best friends, niece or nephews (or in your case, kids), then I am not allowed to say it to myself. It is hypocritical to have a different standard for yourself than others.
I will learn to love myself unconditionally.
I will learn to live passionately and with as much love for myself as I have for others.
I will remember that what makes me a goddess is my passion, heart, and soul, not my physical attributes.
