It’s easy to get down on yourself if you fall off the healthy eating/exercise routine. Playing the “mess up” over and over again in your mind only increases your chances of continuing to make the same mistakes. The next time you get a little off track, start writing down where you think the mistake started. Were you frustrated, sad, tired…why did you miss your workout, or why did you eat what you were not supposed to? Don’t play that over again in your head…just acknowledge it and move on.
The best way to be successful is to start encouraging yourself and start talking about what you do RIGHT. You had a good workout? Congratulate yourself on it. Replay the victories in your health and fitness journey, not the mistakes. When no one else encourages you, you better encourage yourself. Do not rely on outside support but on your own inner strength. Until you develop this characteristic, you will keep making the same mistakes over and over again.
Remember that what you think is what you will become!!
