When I'm exercising and I feel like I'm about to quit, my mantra becomes Philippians 4:13 "I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me." I say it over and over and like a miracle, I get through it!

Make Up Your Mind

There was a wise man who once said,"You will be as happy as you make up your mind to be". It is hard some days to make up your mind in that direction but fake it until you make it. It pays off in every facet of your life.

pick yourself up after a bad day

Just One Thing...

Choose just one thing to start with, write a food journal or start drinking water or counting your steps per day. Get good at it. Build from there. It helps me stay positive when I can do something well and get better at it all the time
