Surround Yourself with Positive and Caring People and Attitudes

This is something I force myself to work on every day, especially when the scales or the mirrors tell me to quit or give up. I do a silly dance in my kitchen or say something funny, and my spirits are lifted to new heights so I can focus on healthy choices no matter what the situation.

self talk - comes in all shapes and sizes!

I can talk myself out of anything even if its a really good thing. So recently I tried the reverse phsychology on ME. So when I would think about stopping in at the store on my way home to pick up some ice cream or chips.....I started to reason it out - too much money, waste of money, really bad...

Promise to Self

I promise to accept myself for who I am. I promise to do the best I can for myself. I promise to give myself the time needed to be healthy in every single area of my life. I promise to give myself a break. I promise to remind myself that I am human, I am not perfect and no one else is either.

Exercise your mind.

I can tend to be down on myself when things don't go right. When that happens I just try and encourage others so that I can help someone else.

Smile

When I'm feeling happy or sad, I try to smile, tell a joke or make eye contact with another person. The more I smile the better I feel!

Just Do It!!!!!

My motto is: "Just Do It." By this I mean if there is something you just hate doing, do it and get it done and you will feel much better and happier that you stuck it out and got it done.

Dress for your body!

My husband has been saying my legs look thinner; I disagree. Yesterday, I wore these tight, structurally supportive yoga pants to Body Pump class and couldn't believe how skinny my lower body looked! I guess you really have to find clothes that work for you to show off your progress!

day by day

Each day is a new day. A day to eat right, to exercise and to find the positives in life even when there can be so many things that get you down.
It all comes down to this.
