Changing Assumptions

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

I've been feeling completely off lately and kind of down about the fact that I've been on spark for awhile and can't get this weight loss thing down.

It's that word "can't" that keeps coming up that I need to change. I was reading an article on how our subconscious assumptions can fight with our daily goals. So if we've decided in the back of our minds that we "can't" do something and that it's just not going to work out, it turns into a self-fulfilling prophecy..so here are my subconscious assumptions that I need to toss into the garbage can -

"There's no way I can workout consistently every day for the rest of my life so this isn't going to work."

"Aagh..I can't be on a deprivation diet for the rest of my life so this just isn't going to work."

"I'm not one of the skinny people - I've always been big-boned so really genetically this isn't going to work."

emoticon All such cr$$$$$p!..and not true.

So I'm tossing out these assumptions out and replacing them with:

" It IS Possible for ME..."

" I Can live a healthy lifestyle consistently for the rest of my life."

"I am fully and genetically capable of being lean and fit. emoticon All I need to do is to put in the work to get there and visualize myself as a healthy, lean fit person every single day."

    emoticon You threw out the assumptions! Now to replace them every day with the new ones. I post all the motivational sayings I come across in notebooks that I have - I'm on the second one now. I go back and read them and share them with people when I am not feeling the best about myself. It helps me.
