Focus on What you Should Eat, Not What You Shouldn't
Celebrate healthy food, don't lament the bad stuff.
Making healthy eating a lifestyle means learning to love your new way of eating. It helps to focus on what you should eat, not what you shouldn't. Do think about how you will get more veggies and fruits. Do think about how you can add protein. Don't think "If only I could have an extra value meal."
when i am on the treadmill, i pop on some motivating music and imagine that i am running away from the old me and my bad habits. sometimes it even works when i am in a bad mood, i am running away from my bad mood and i seem to be able to run farther, faster!!
