Point, Counterpoint! Argue yourself to a new, healthy life.

When I feed myself excuses: I don't want to exercise today. I'm too tired, for example... I immediately counter with the opposite argument: Yes, I'm tired, but so what? Exercise will give me energy and stamina. Or if I'm eyeballing a piece of cake I think...It will taste delicious, but oh, the sugar and calories! Is the guilt worth it? Fresh fruit isn't as tasty, but it will help make you healthy. (Please see accompanying note.)
So make a case for yourself. Fight for your health, you're worth it!

POWER IN NUMBERS!!

I recently went on my FB and sent out a message looking for people to exercise with for five days a week after my work-out buddy and i developed conflicting schedules. To my surprise so many people were looking for the same thing. I find myself wanting to do even more so now I am exercising at home on my bike watching an hour long t.v. show first thing in the morning before I leave with a friend to where ever. Its great I'm able to be more motivated and its creating a lil club of our own!!

Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Mood

We can't control most of the things that happen to us. We can't control other people. But we can control ourselves. If you find yourself thinking a certain way that makes you feel unhealthy or negative, then take a step back and change your thought.

Junk food...not in my house

If you see it you will eat it! Don't take junk home! If you HAVE to have it eat it at work and share with co-workers. If you bring home a pack of cookies you will prob eat all of them. Leave the junk at the door.
