The other day I heard a quote from the scholar Yasir Fazaga. It was so vivid that it has stuck in my mind and I keep repeating it each day to remind myself. here it is: "Watch your thoughts, they become your words. Watch your words, they become your actions. Watch your actions, they become your habit." I can relate to this quote in many ways, but for weight loss, I think it helps me if I stop thinking about indulging in the wrong foods any chance I get. So far it has been working!
I find changing a few words changes your world. Like I try not to say workout but play time, fun time, time getting move, and social time(walking with a friend). I think of working with the PTball and strength training as performing and circus training. 334
Use the TOOL!~Read the Articles!----This one=KNOW Your Menu Watch Words
Maybe reading isn't your forte,but KNOWING the information IN them SHOULD BE! I found a GREAT article called KNOW YOUR MENU WATCH WORDS-Throw the Flag at Unhealthy Cooking by Zach Van Hart,Staff Writer [I guess for SP!].Basically ,he lists RED FLAG words that are a GUIDE for HOW FOODS ARE PREPARED
and what to watch out for. An example--AVOID FOODS that are listed on the MENU as cheesy,crunchy,crispy,covered,country-style~because most likely they have ADDED FAT! [Most of them I already knew!] He also lists GREEN FLAG words on menus ~baked,broiled, grilled,light. It was MOST HELPFUL to learn!
