02/04/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

Your point of view about body image is so important to your peace of mind and happiness. I believe that it is ultimately integrated into your success with a weight loss and workout plan as well.Negative self-talk zaps your energy and lowers your self-esteem which can affect your success in all areas of your life.

Giving others compliments, will assure, typically, that you brighten someone else’s day, and feel good about yourself.Being kind to yourself and your progress, gives yourself leeway for temporary setbacks or plateau’s, without destroying the whole process.

Asking you to be kind to yourself, may go against a lifelong pattern, but today is the day to break that pattern.

If your goal is weight loss, pounding away for hours on cardio day after day, may not be as effective as integrating a Pilates or yoga or zumba class into your plan. A workout form that pleases your mind may have more far-reaching results.

Seeing the positive results from clean eating and muscle based training can be addictive. Quick weight loss (that people with large amounts of weight to lose see more easily at first) and the development of muscle tone, is a rush. You want more, faster! The plateau that may come when you’ve been working on your goals for a while, or those last 5-10 lbs, can be disheartening. Don’t give up!

Recognize the benefits to your body and mind in the work you’ve done…for you. You’re embracing that you deserve good health and mental happiness. TAKE IT!
