We don't always follow a straight, smooth line when we work towards our health goals. It's ok when it curves here and there and presents bumps and obstacles. One thing for sure; I will not give up on my goal to be healthy and at a weight that is right for my body.
Have you ever done a health reset? It's a great way to kickstart your journey into a healthy lifestyle, and you might also become more aware of how you rely on certain foods or alcohol to relax, soothe or even numb yourself.
For me, my health is my number one focus; the weight loss is an indicator I'm eating right for my body at this time. The weight loss IS a motivator for sure, but it is not my main focus...it is mainly a sign I'm moving towards optimal health.
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.
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.
Changing how I eat is a process. It will take time, and I will never be perfect.
If I have difficulty staying on track, I might do a juice fast or even a water fast (I've done both before) to help me reset my taste buds.
Your LifeLens is the lens through which you think about your life and approach life. It is one of the most important and most underrated parts of who you are.
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.
