No Flogging!

This Sparked Me!

I had to change my mindset for times I would "slip". No more beating myself up... now, it's "A new opportunity to be successful!" How lucky am I that I can start again? I don't wait for the next day to start fresh... I do it with the next MEAL! Soon the little successes snowball to big success!

I post my favorite postiive quote in several places around my house..."It's hard to beat a person that never gives up." Babe Ruth
I remind the person in the mirror that she is special and deserves a hug!

    I was thinking about this this AM. Saturday I had a hard food day. Sunday I was beating myself up at the gym. I had to stop and think...I go to the gym to be well, to feel good, to get healthy. Putting a negative "flogging" spin was definitely NOT the way to go. The gym needs to be a positive thing. "Flogging" was souring it for me. emoticon

I have zero exercise since Monday.
I don't think you can count zzzzzzzzzzzz's or can you?
