Here's my Friday 56 entry:
Lose the negative self-talk. I'm referring to that little voice in your head that passes judgment on your every move. Whenever you catch yourself thinking, "I'll never get this report done" or "My house is a filthy wreck," stop yourself and redirect your thinking. Instead, replay the thought with a positive spin: "I will do my absolute best to meet this deadline" and "I love this house for all its wonderful memories." Forcing these thoughts might feel silly, but I promise you: It will help you feel more in control of your life, and it will build your self-respect and self-confidence. And, as we now know, that is integral to achieving your health and weight-loss goals!
