Do rainy days get you in a rut??
Is the glass always half full or half empty??
Well the answers to these questions can and will affect your health, well being and yes even affect your weight loss efforts!!
I'm not talking about being oblivious to your current situations, I'm just talking about putting a positive spin on things.
Think that good things can come from any shitty situation, learn from it and expect the best!
Here are a few things to look out for:
The self limiting beliefs
You've either heard or said some of these phrases like, "I suck at everything I try" or "That workout is too hard for me" or "I'll never lose weight" or "My can't gain any muscle not matter what I try!"
When you talk like this you are creating a self fulfilling prophecy, you've admitted defeat before you even gave yourself a chance to find a solution.
Think happy thoughts and be cool!
Whatever your goal is understand that your just starting out and you will reach your goal in time.
Don't forget to give yourself a pat on the back for every little milestone you hit. Whether it's doing 5 minutes of walking each day or just saying no to an extra serving of food, get yourself props!
Jumping to conclusions
When your in a uncomfortable situation your mind creates all types of scenarios that may not even exist. Ever thought that people were going to stare at you when you went to the gym for the first time or when you tried on a dress that you looked horrible? Or how about "He (or she) won't be attracted to me because I don't look like _____ (add anyones name that you think is attractive).
No one will stare at you, maybe it's the jeans that were ugly not you and if that asshole doesn't like you the way you are he (or she) is a super douch and you don't em anyway.
Do things to make your self feel good, respect and love who you are and everyone else has no choice but to do the same.
Just understand you may not be able to control each and every situation your in life but the one thing you need to and can have control over are your thoughts and those thoughts bring to life your actions.
If you don't gain control over the way you think and feel about yourself it's gonna be all down hill.
