This has been a focusing phrase for me for several months now. I used to let fear make my decisions, and now when I feel fear about something new, I choose to take on that new challenge! It's really changed my life.

I treat my body and my mind as team mates. My mind makes the decisions and my body carries them out. At the end of the day, if I have made bad decisions (not exercising, eating poorly, etc) I mentally apologize to my body for not taking care of it properly and not giving it what it needs. If I have made healthy decisions, I praise myself for being strong. Sounds strange, but it keeps me accountable for my actions.
Some of the reasons I try and stay trim, exercise and eat healthy is because of fear. Fear of not having a good quality of life. Fear of having to take pills. Fear of becoming a diabetic. Fear of a stroke or heart attack.33
