I’ve discovered a new way to journal. I still write out my thoughts, but now, I turn to my voice recorder on my phone when I need to have a good talk with myself.
It might sound weird, but when you chat with yourself out loud, with purpose, AND you record yourself on a voice app, it can be life changing.
The visual reminder of my tracker, which I see multiple times a day, is not only a reminder and motivation/encouragement, but as the year progresses, it becomes a sense of accomplishment.
A lot of people think exercise has to be really hard or a challenge, and although getting your heart rate up and building muscle requires work and is beneficial to your body, getting moving doesn’t have to be like that.
My rising resting heart rate is like an alarm that alerts me to the poor environment I'm providing for my heart.
It takes practice, but when you turn your negative self-talk into powerful, uplifting thoughts, you can turn those low feelings around.
Tracking your food and analyzing the results are steps you can take to ensure you're moving towards a healthier lifestyle that will naturally encourage your body to drop the extra pounds.
At this point in my weight-loss journey, I can see that I’ve been struggling for a few weeks, and I need to do something to reset my taste buds.
You must find a way to believe in yourself and harness your inner power, so you can traverse your way through the challenges of living a healthy lifestyle and come out as the person you want to become: healthy, at peace and free of the struggle.
Each day that I'm successful with a habit, I fill in a square on my tracker, which I keep posted in the kitchen where I can see it every day. My tracker shows 6 months at a time.
