3 Affirmations for 1 Negative

When stinkin' thinkin' kicks in and I'm beating myself up, I mentally scream "STOP" and for each negative, replace it with three positive affirmations about myself.

Beating Yourself Up Is Not Cardio

You're only human. Sometimes, you'll miss workouts and eat too much. It happens. When it does, don't waste even more energy beating yourself up over it. Accept it as a break from your program and then get right back to making healthier choices.

NO GUILT!!!

I believe it's important to be honest with yourself about positive and negative choices. However, I've discovered that I am my own worst critic and that I can kill my motivation faster than any outside force ever could. I taught myself to be as kind to me as I am to others and not beat myself up.

Have a goal

I am getting ready to go on a cruise. My goal is to fit into a beautiful sexy gown. Each day I am tempted, I think of me wearing the dress, and this helps me to avoid making a mistake. emoticon

Retrain your brain

To finally be able to lose weight, I had to retrain my brain to stop making stupid excuses. I had to teach my brain how to think thoughts that told me I can do this.

Record your good choices

Every time that I make a good choice NOT to eat or drink something, I make a list on the "notes" page of the nutrition tracking page. At the end of the day I feel much better about any slip-ups that I have had if I can see the "slip-ups" that I prevented.

Positive Affirmation Cards...

A friend introduced me to Louise Hay. I bought her "You can heal yourself" kit with positive affirmation cards. I use those and some I made myself. I read them 10 times a day to do a "set" of positive affirmations - just like any exercise!

Gratitude

Practicing gratitude is one of the most important habits we can form. When the dark clouds of worry, despair, anger, depression and helplessness hang over our heads, being able to express gratitude for something or someone will boost our attitudes. It will enhance a good mood too!!

Want it...Do it...Own it

I believe you have to want it...then go after it and do what you are capable of doing but not over push yourself...then if you do good or bad...own it...you make the success and if one thing gets you down don't stop...just keep going.
