Thoughts and me

Friday, September 02, 2011

As I said before, your mind is the most important tool you have. Period.

Regardless of what you want to accomplish, your mind, and more specifically your thoughts, are your best frenemy.

Frenemy? Hell, yes, you can motivate yourself with your thoughts or you can discourage yourself with them.

Usually it does not matter what everybody else says, if you think of yourself as any negative or positive attributes... that is what is going to become of you.

So what is a smart girl to do? Create NICE, SOOTHING, ENCOURAGING thoughts to help yourself along the way. Again it does not matter what you are trying to accomplish: weight loss, relationships, jobs, business adventures; you name it...

You need to believe that you will succeed and you will.

So, I wish SP would have a way to track your foods without really having to see how many calories you are consuming right off the bat. I have learnt that the more I check the amount of calories in anything I eat, the more obsessed I become and the easier I can fall off track.

So I am going to make sure I write down everything I eat and maybe entered them all at the END of the day, instead of the beginning, so I can eat my normal, healthy fare and not over-obsess about how many calories I have left for the day in order to lose weight.

The more I do this, the more I notice that a relaxed day is a successful day, waaaaaaaaaaaaay in the low range of my calorie allotment.

Exercise is a good amount most days, so I should be fine.

I really do want to be relaxed, on my way to success and not a crazy, stressed out, obsessed calorie counting person as before...

Thinking of it... maybe that was my mistake...

"Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become character.
Watch your character for it becomes your destiny".
