I am taking a moment to pause & recognize where I am on the road to feeling healthy & fit after a few months back on SP. Sadly, I haven't kept the few pounds I worked so hard to take off. I've gotten sucked into an adrenaline high at work with lots going on & have neglected to take care of myself. On top of that, I have been in L.A. over the last few days with sexy young 20 something yearl olds & feeling old & fat which is not where I want to be.
I downloaded a great app on my iPhone called GPS FOR THE SOUL & get daily reminders to take a break & great articles to keep me motivated & regain the confidence in my ability to lose the weight, despite some setbacks.
My homework assignments from this article:
1. Look the part.
Pick up a fashion item that makes me feel good - I'm going to look for a new wool coat in a pale pink to feel feminine again
2. Fake it!
I will walk tall, shoulders back, posture erect, head held high. I believe that I am a confident person and will carry as if I am!
3. Edit Internal Dialogue
I will practice saying positive things to myself..."I can do this!"
4. Set small goals -- and achieve them!
I will lose 5 pounds in the next 4 weeks as a birthday present to myself
5. Be happy... and grateful
I am taking time to acknoweldge that I am grateful for the love in my life, my family, my kids, my BFF & work that's invigorating.
I have traveled to the West Coast 3 times over the last 3 months & will be back again next month. I will get back to eating healthy, meditating, exercising & drinking water.
