I used to leave the gym tired, worn out and feeling like a failure because I was out of shape (I would always quit going after those thoughts started coming). I changed the voice in my head so it now says "I am healthier than I was yesterday!" For me this creates a feeling of a mini goal that I have accomplished and it always makes me feel great and motivates me to work out tomorrow to get even healthier! There are no small victories when it comes to your health!

I dont have a set day for having a treat, I wait until my weight hasnt budged a bit in more than a few days and I know I need a treat day. Not only do I see the weight i was struggling to shift disapear plus some within the few days after a treat day but treat days also make me feel yuck and remind me why I eat healthy every other day. Im averaging 1 treat day out of 10-14 healthy days. It feels good to finally know what my body wants/needs :-)
DAY 1:you will feel great. DAY 2:PAIN DAY 3:it'll feel better 2moro. DAY 4:hump day DAY 5:get mad at the pain! that's right! be in disbelief that you are this out of shape and fix it! DAY 6:your body has a chump moment; rock it mentally! DAY 7:BEAT THAT GYM LIKE IT OWES YOU!
This is for all my various friends who are having a hard time getting in starting up their workout routine. Remember this: its going to hurt. How much it's gonna hurt is up to you. You can rest on day 2 and let that pain grown or work thru it!
