Write a letter to yourself a week from now, anticipating how you might perform (or perceive your performance) during that week. Encourage yourself and call yourself out on your excuses - write whatever you believe is needed for where you are - and read that same letter in seven days. During those days keep that letter in mind. Try to 'earn' the feeling of encouragement you wrote down for yourself, or maybe even prove wrong the doubts you wrote down by doing something opposite everyday! (Repeat!)
We are told to live in the moment all the time, but sometimes that's nearly impossible for me! This summer I discovered that if I eat and exercise thinking of *tomorrow* instead of today things are much easier. For example, "I really don't feel like working out now... but I know tomorrow my knees won't be as limber if I don't work out, and I want my knees to feel good for that walk I planned tomorrow evening with Sue." This strategy has helped me lose 30 lbs this summer, so I hope it helps! :)
