Today is day 52 of my on track streak!
It is also Jillian Michael's birthday. Whether you love her or hate her, she is an inspiration to many people! So happy birthday, Jillian!
"It happens - you miss a few workouts and you feel like you've fallen off the weight-loss wagon.
It's tempting to mentally slap yourself around, right? (Or head for the fridge.)
Before you start, I want to remind you of something: Being hard on yourself is the Old You.
The New You knows how to deal with setbacks and get back on the wagon.
And after all, there are no mistakes, just learning experiences. Weight loss is a process - it takes time.
You will encounter small failures - everyone does - but every pound you gain can be lost.
And if you miss a workout, it's not the end of the world!
Get to the gym the next day and continue to focus on your short-term goals.
Just because you made bad choices today doesn't mean you can't start over tomorrow.
New day? New beginning. And don't you forget it!"
"When you put positive energy and productive effort into the world it will come back to you. Occasionally in ways you might not immediately understand and on a time frame you didn’t expect. Look. Listen. Learn. Stay open. Your destiny is awaiting you.”
“Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks. We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects. One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
― Jillian Michaels
“Having the right to happiness means having the right to earn it, not having it given to you without effort and action on your part.”
“Do you realize that there is nothing in our genes that tells us when to die? There are genetic codes that tell us how to grow, how to breathe, and how to sleep, but NOTHING that tells us to die. So why do we? Because we literally rust and decay our bodies from the inside out with poor food and lifestyle choices.”
“The past does not define, you the present does.”
