Picture yourself when you were five.... In Fact dig out a photo of little you at that time... and ... tape it to your mirror...

How would you treat her... Love Her... Treat Her... Feed Her... ???

How would you nurture her if you were the mother of little you...

I bet you would protect her Fiercely...

while giving her space to Spread her Itty-Bitty Wings...

She'd gets naps... Healthy Food... Imagination Time... and Adventures into the wild...

If playground bullies hurt her feelings... you hug her tears away....
and giver her perspective...

When Tantrums or Meltdowns... turned her into a poltergeist...
You Demand a Loving Time... out in the naughty chair...

From this Day Forward... I want you to Extend that same compassion to your Adult Self...

It's not a Diet... But a Life Style... that you have to plan...

It's not for Him... it's for Yourself... Keep that in the plan...

It's not for just one day... two... or three... four... But Everyday...

It's not to feel really good in a dress... oh noooo... Nope...

but to feel good in your own skin...

It's not for the Beach... but for your Mind...

It's not for Competition... Ease that from your Mind...

But it's for the You that you Created... By your own Self...

You need to become a Better Version of You...

Every... Single... Day... Then Repeat... and Repeat...

Don't Forget to Keep Going... Going... Going...

*Goooooo* Gooooooo* Go... Go... Go... Go*

My last thought before I start working out is...
"Why am I doing this"....

My first thought when I finish a workout....
"When can I do it again"...

I thought about stopping...
Then I workout harder...

Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can GOOOoooO....
Remember everything you have faced... all the battles you have won....
All the Fears you have overcome...

A Single Thread of Hope is Still Very POWERFUl....

I don't have to work out...
I Get to Work out...

#1. Being Active one... two... three times.. won't help you lose weight... It takes 12 weeks to see the Results...
emoticon

#2. 100 Calories Pack Snacks... or even Rice Krispy Treats... Single Packaged...
emoticon
#3. Don't Weigh Often... Go by the way your clothes fit... or Tape Measure...
emoticon

#3. Diet Soda has artificial Sweeteners... that Harms the Body...
emoticon

#4. Craving Foods... Remember that it will always be there... It's alright if you don't have whatever your craving... You won't miss it... It will always be at the store... and if it's not at the store next time... or it's not at the restaurant your craving.. it won't be a Total Lost... Everything will be Fine...
emoticon = emoticon

#5. Prepacking Meals Ahead of Time... Cook Chicken Breasts ahead of time... for easy access later on during the week... or sort out healthy snacks to remind you of your smaller portions....

Accept the days when Working out seem impossible...
Embrace the days when working out seems effortless...

I don't have to workout...
I get to work out...

Fruit & Veggies
Cardio & Weights
Water & Tea
Yoga & Sleep
Motivation & Perseverance....

They all goo well with each other....
