When fighting or training heavily you can get a great rush from adrenaline. Learning to control that burst, and level it out over the length of your training while increasing your intensity can really drive your body. Some people feel nervous, as their body begins burning more energy and breathing rapidly, control your faster breathing, and feel the charge within you. Use that with a focused and disciplined mind and you can achieve amazing results.
Appreciate your heightened senses Breath deeply, fully and quickly Try to hit new personal bests for power or strength Learning to control the rush will improve your endurance, panicking will burn you out faster Feel the excitement, but keep on track, focused power is better than wild flailing.

We all want that perfect figure, but beating ourself up is no help. Try to lighten up a little. I take my new lifestyle very seriously but if I have something I shouldn't I just try to overcome it, move on and try to make better choices the next time.
The idea is learn from our mistakes and learn to make healthy choices we can live with not to feel deprived and hungry.
I used to procrastinate on EVERYTHING. But I learned in college, that the rush from the original assignment was just as adrenaline pumping as the last-minute adrenaline rush - So if something needs to get done - I hang on to that initial rush and do it before the rush runs out! Now, if it's something mundane I can't do right away, I write it down on a short list and add something exciting to it, like "buy toothpaste AND get a new magazine." It's a little Pavlovian but it works! 224
I have had such big success with my weight loss from choosing not to eat after dinner. The reward comes the next morning when the scale is usually lower or the same as the day before, but not higher!!
I've learned to skip the bedtime snack and go to bed hungry...and I've learned that the slightly hungry feeling I have at bedtime is so much better and more comfortable than the full, crummy I feeling I get if I eat something before going to bed!
