Fit Tip: Get Positive

Monday Morning Fit Tip:


Positive thoughts are empowering. The statements on the left are positive reasons of why you might workout.  But why should YOU focus on the positive? Well, a negative attitude can set processes in motion that make losing weight difficult, if not impossible. Berating yourself every time you eat the wrong foods, constantly focusing on what you cannot eat and approaching your exercise regimen with dread are all ways that negative thought patterns can sabotage your fitness efforts.

When you hold a negative image of yourself, you rob yourself of much-needed energy. When feeling powerless, depressed or unmotivated, it’s easy to skip your daily workout or eat a bag of potato chips to feel better. However, tuning into how you feel, acknowledging those feelings and transforming those thoughts into something more positive can actually help you to achieve your fitness goals faster.  Check out this video from Dove about your self-image…

Now ask yourself this question:


Use the answer of why YOU workout to stay motivated during a challenging session or to help drag yourself out of bed for a morning run.  You are beautiful and you are worth it!
