Fill Your Life With The Light of Positivity

You can change the path of your life from dark to light or from negative to positive. Every time you focus on the positive you are bringing more light into your life & you know that light removes all darkness. Gratitude, love, kind thoughts, words & actions bring light and eliminate darkness.

Take one day at a time

Old way: Fall off the bandwagon when having a "bad" day with food and immediately stop my healthy eating program.
New way: Get up. Brush the dust off my pants and get right back on track again.
"Bad" days are no longer "bad." Just a detour down the road to healthy living.

The 80-20 Rule

Accept that you're human and that we are all imperfect. As long as you keep to your healthy eating and fitness regime 80 percent of the time, you can forgive yourself the 20 percent of time you lapse.

STAY FOCUSED

I have learned not to give up and beat myself down when I get off track. I realize I'm human and I'm not perfect. I try to pin point what made me go off track. I look for triggers. Once I recognize them, I strive to correct them. I try to keep all negativity out of my life. emoticon

Take a holiday

Every once in a while, a holiday can't hurt!
Easter, Christmas, Birthdays to name a few. Don't be the sourpuss "I'm on a diet - I can't eat that."
Eat healthy, enjoy the company, watch the portions, and don't stress over it. It is a holiday, not everyday.

Listening to Music

I feel more in control when I listen to good inspirational music. It makes me feel better about myself. I also do a better walk with my iPod, with my choice of music. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Stress Relief!

Feeling stressed. Petting a kitten and listening to it purrr at your is incredibly relaxing. Come home from work and pickup your kitten and pet it behind the ears and you'll feel the stress disintegrating as you listen to the purrrrrrrr-ing.

Approach the scale with no expectations

No matter what the scale says, it doesn't change how you feel or how you look. In fact, it means very little in the grand scheme of things. Expect nothing and any loss will be a pleasant surprise and cause for celebration.
