7/30/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Friday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 31. July 2013 07:26

Your point of view about body image is so important to your peace of mind and happiness.  Giving others compliments, will assure, typically, that you brighten someone else’s day, and sometimes, get a compliment back.

If your goal is weight loss, pounding away for hours, may not be as effective as integrating a Pilates or yoga or zumba class into your plan.  A workout form that pleases your mind may have more far-reaching results.

Seeing the positive results from clean eating and muscle based training can be addictive.  Quick weight loss (that people with large amounts of weight to lose see more easily at first) and the development of muscle tone, is a rush.  You want more, faster!  The plateau that may come when you’ve been working on your goals for a while, or those last 5-10 lbs, can be disheartening.  Don’t give up!

Recognize the benefits to your body and mind in the work you’ve done…for you.  You’re embracing that you deserve good health and mental happiness.  TAKE IT!
