How do you achieve and maintain a positive outlook?
We went to the Olive Garden. I was good except for a sliver of the cake. I know they use salt & I always go up when I go there but I will drink, drink & drink today.
Try and ALWAYS look on the Bright Side of things, be positive
Two words...Reinvent yourself!
I use this as my motivation/pep talk, I'm worth it!
Everyone has to be content with themselves.
I am fortunate enough to have an entire room that is my "workout room". The walls are plastered with motivational quotes, collages, photos, and race bibs. When I go in there to do my ST and yoga I see all that I can and want to be.
Each day and smile to yourself, and tell yourself something you like about yourself. Just stand there and keep smiling for a little while, absorbing what is staring back at you. Eventually, with time, it sinks in and you will feel better about yourself.
Every night before bed, no matter what my husband and I take turns saying five things that we are grateful for about one another. It's nice to just focus on the two of us for a moment and it helps to remind us how much we love each other. Besides, who doesn't love a compliment?
I force myself to find something good in every single situation. I always point on the bright side to everything. Even when things are rough I make a point to be positive & happy. Even if you have to fake it the more you do it the more optimistic you become.
Like yourself now, not 10 pounds from now. You'll be more apt to forgive the mistakes and go on. This creates less stress in your life so that you're able to deal with the task at hand - GETTING HEALTHY!
Not stopping my usual work, exercise etc, just don't have to cut the grass as a lot of you don't also . Since really not much rain it is dead, I looked at the garden, bushes and flower's and I am going to have to start watering. Last night we had rain and promised 5 more days of it. Then I'll cut.
