Remember that staying positive can be the best help for you on this journey to better health. Playing "the glad game" is one way that I stay positive. When I find myself getting down or depressed, I remind myself of all the things that I am GLAD about. I count my blessings & write out a gratitude list. When I am positive & upbeat I am more inclined to exercise and eat right instead of getting into the emotional eating.
EVERY morning, I incorporate the help from my 'Maker". After a little time with Him, I am "positive, focused and "pumped". It's not for everybody (too bad), but maybe you should try it, you never know until you do. Anyway, it works for me.
My body has been so tuned to waking up at 5:45, i now don't need and alarm clock. Routine is the best thing for mind and body. It seems to thrive on 'regularity', but, I "change gears" ever so often, so my body/mind team doesn't get 'lazy'.
One of my "other" goals is a daily "uplift me" goal. As I am driving to work, I either give me lots of positive self-talk, I roleplay something for work with a positive outcome or I sing positive songs. By the time I get to work, I am geared up for a positive day!
