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.

Anytime you mess up on your healthy lifestyle journey, simply put it behind you! Everyone makes detours in life - you are no exception. Instead of beating yourself up about it and making yourself feel bad, talk to yourself in a positive fashion instead. Make yourself feel better the same way that you would encourage your best friend. Remember, YOU are your own best friend!! 22030
