Rest Days are, well, Restful!

It is positive thinking to reserve a rest day for your body, mind, and spirit to recoup and heal. Sometimes if you push too hard, there is muscle damage, and you need to allow healing. 1 day a week, I stretch, and may or may not do light cardio, but I give myself a much needed break. It works!

Life is just change!

When I am overstressed or overwhelmed with life's little (and HUGE) curveballs, I remind myself that, "It's just Life. Life is Change." That simple mantra reminds me that change is normal, nothing to be afraid of, and I reframe "stressors" into "adventures"!

Toxic "Friends" - Let Them Go, Give Yourself Permission--It Is OKAY, I Promise!

Letting go of toxic "friends" is just as important as surrounding yourself with positive people. All it takes is that one person that will delight in the back handed compliment or saying cutting or disparaging things. It is OKAY to distance yourself, in fact, you NEED to keep the negativity away.

Put reminders up

I put a list of the advantages of losing weight all over the place. On the mirror in the bathroom, on the fridge, in my datebook and over the visor in the car. I make sure to stop at least once a day and read the whole list.
