How do you achieve and maintain a positive outlook?
Now my sparkfriends if it were a secret I would'nt be posting it ...lol
the only way to stay uncluttered in your mind is to stay uncluttered in your home
I like to check out random strangers on Spark, to see their progress. When I find someone who has a similar goal, weight, or motivation as mine, then I'll friend request them and tell them what a great motivator they are! Not only does it make feel good, but I'm sure it does the same for them!
Negative thoughts are not who you are - your true nature is all good! So if a negative thought comes, say to yourself, "These thoughts are not mine & they do not belong to me. I am all good & I only have good thoughts for myself & others." Now you are speaking the truth! - The Secret
Others expect us to never make a mistake or have a bad day when we're on our weight loss / fitness journeys. And we tend to allow a single bad day as a trigger to give up. But we're human - we have bad days, and we're allowed days to "celebrate".
When my weight loss seems to plateau (a regular occurence) I remind myself that the lean muscle mass I am building through exercise weighs more than fat...so as my body tones & shapes, my muscles grow. Then...the muscles burn more calories & I start to loose pounds, once again.
I called the bakery late for a carrot cake, when they delivered it. I gave the guy a nice tip..he said I made his week! We took a cab and I gave the cabbie a nice tip as well..I won't always be able to give money..but to see the expressions of happiness was wonderful. I want to give one act a week!
hope everyone has a lovely Easter Sunday with family.
I love to write and anybody who knows me knows I keep many journals. One I keep is called a Humour Journal, another a Blessings Journal and a Happy Journal. They sound similar but are different. When I am feeling down I pick up one of these and flip through my entries and it picks my mood up.
Don't worry about the who, what , where, when or why you do an excersize or the way YOU eat. No one else is going to do the work for you, so don't worry about looking or acting "weird". Nothing can hold you back but you!
