Your Words Are Important

A friend of mine and I are both going through similar effects from fitness competing. We both are struggling to lose weight due to hormone issues among other things. It's very stressful and depressing and we would talk to each other about it because other people don't understand and expect that we just must be over eating or something. Lately, we have been talking a lot about changing our words and our thinking.
If you read the bible then you may recall Proverbs 18:21, that talks about life and death are in the power of tongue. It's crazy how speaking positively about situations you are dealing with can change your outlook and subsequently change your outcome. I am not perfect and I still struggle each day, but I am constantly trying to remind myself that being sad or upset about something does nothing to help the situation.

How You Can Start:

1. Write down your positive affirmations. (Write down positive things that you want to accomplish or characteristics you want to obtain as if they have already happened) Place them in areas you will see each day, so that you can constantly remind yourself of what you are speaking upon your life.

2. When you wake up, think of 2-3 things you are thankful. It doesn't how big or small they are. When you focus on all you have to be thankful of, it leaves less room for your negativity.

3. Set mini goals. Sometimes we set these big huge goals that will take a year to accomplish and then get frustrated because it seems if we aren't reaching them. Set mini goals (maybe every week), accomplishing these goals will keep you motivated and you will feel happy to have accomplished something you set out to do.

4. Stay consistent. The more you do things they become normal for you. Practice being positive and it'll become a habit. You got this!

You deserve greatness, sometimes we dont realize we are the ones holding us back!
