Before I got to bed every night I give myself a pep talk. I congratulate myself for my days work and then I talk to myself about the work that I am going to do tomorrow. I remind myself that I am worth all of my effort and today is the day to prove it to myself.
This little pillow talk technique usually has me in the right frame of mind to get up and work out in the morning.
I lost 2.6 lbs today at weigh-in. Last week - my first week back on my program - I stayed the same; I was mad as h#$#3 to say the least . So, I thought this week I would have a 'big' loss....I was disappointed when I saw 'only' 2.6 lbs...but after a talk with myself, a talk with a good friend... a loss is a loss is a loss...it's better than gaining any day of the week!
Talking to myself as a winner helps me banish the negative voice and keeps me pumped. I call it ChampionSpeak because I know that those Olympic athletes probably talk to themselves the same way and I want to get a gold medal too.
Sounds like, "You can do this!", "Nothing is going to stop you!", "Keep going, keep going", Persistence pays off.", "Consistency, not perfection will get you to your goals.", "I am doing this.", "Quitting is not an option," "I WILL NOT quit!"
