Positive thinking is more than half the battle when it comes to weight loss. I've learned that and have applied it to my life over the past month. Instead of beating myself up over perceived failures. I recognize the failures, but I put more energy into praising myself for positive accomplishments. For example, I'm feeling proud of myself today because I have been consistently working out for the last few weeks 3-4 times a week. My goal was to exercise for 30 minutes a day, 3 times a week. But, on average, I've been exercising 3-4 times a week, 45 minutes day. This is such an accomplishment for me because I'd been very inconsistent over the past few months. So for me to consistently workout for the past months, with all the holidays and activities, I'm feeling really good about myself. Now, the old me would have spent more time and energy fussing at myself for not working out 5 times a week for one hour a day. But that old me is gone and I'm learning to speak positive things into my life.
To speak more positive things into my life:
I have accomplished creating the habit of working out consistently over the past month. For this month, I will begin writing down everything that I put in my mouth. I know that once I start watching what I eat and continue my habit of exercising every week, the pounds will begin to come off. I fully expect to have lost 2-3 pounds in 4 weeks. I thank God in advance for this and I will begin celebrating now for my accomplishments. :-)
Until next time . . . . . .
