Thinkin positive!! Allowin yourself to not think of what you can not eat allow yourself to think of what ya can eat and enjoy to eat.
I don't ever think of the downside of food. I don't ever think of the emptiness I have in my belly.
I think of what I can enjoy the flavor of to eat...what I can make myself feel full with but not consumin' way to much of to do this.
Think of not eat'n a lone even if you are sittin alone do it in public.
If you tell yourself it is day by day it will feel like it. But if you tell your self it is a beautiful day and my food smells good...the day won't matter it is just one out of 365 in the year.
To keep myself motivated and enjoying my workouts, I watch my favorite shows or listen to my favorite music ONLY when I workout so that I enjoy my runs and associate positive things with running on my treadmill. I think back to the positive things about working out when I feel too tired to run.
This keeps me motivated to get on the treadmill and stay on while I get to enjoy my shows and playlists. After each workout I think about how much I enjoyed running while watching a show and that I feel great for completing a great run! The positive thinking keeps me going back day after day.
It's okay to step back once in awhile and just enjoy the moment. Even in tough situations - it's important to smile and laugh here and there. Don't restrict yourself from doing things you love because they're "not important" or because you think you'll be criticized for doing them. Let yourself enjoy life even if you're not at the best place you could be. You only live once - make the best of it.
