We are what we think.
We are the products of our thoughts.
What we do, say, eat, and believe is a product of the words we allow in our minds.
So if you want to change your actions, you must start with changing your thoughts. That’s when real progress can begin.
Since there will always be reasons to eat junk food and veg on the couch, we need some firepower to fight those reasons. We need good thoughts to help motivate us! To cheer ourselves on so we can live the lives we are meant to live!
That’s where my encouraging replacement statements come in. These are thoughts I’ve used to help me stay focused on my health goals. They help me be strong mentally when I want to give up on my healthy foods and exercise plans.
These thoughts give me power for good choices to help me have a happy body!
I hope you find some of these resonate with you. Write them down somewhere you’ll see them and repeat them often until they’re memorized. Whatever your current health, you can maintain it and improve with positive thoughts and efforts.
