The way we talk to ourselves in our minds has a big impact on our thoughts, our behaviors, and ultimately our results. When we change our negative thinking into more positive thought patterns, it becomes easier to change our behaviors and our outcomes.

Look, I get it. I know it can seem silly, but have you tried it? You don’t have to do the Stuart Smalley speech, and you don’t have to sit in front of a mirror to do it.

But here’s the truth… if you don’t believe you can change, you’re right. If you DO believe you can change, you’re right.

If saying things like “I CAN lose this weight,” or “I AM going to succeed,” feels like a stretch and you’re not sure you can believe that yet, take smaller steps. So instead, start with “I choose to believe I can lose this weight,” and “I choose to believe I can succeed.” Then gradually make bigger and bolder statements.

Give this a shot. Don’t knock it until you try it. After all, what have you got to lose??

I know that’s probably not what you want to hear, but it’s the truth!

If you’re “treating” yourself with bad food after a “great” workout, you’ve just sabotaged all your hard work. It’s the equivalent of running on a hamster wheel–you’re putting a lot of work but not actually getting anywhere. Why do that to yourself?

Check the video above for ideas of how to combat this all-too-common myth that you can eat whatever you want as long as you workout.

Far too often I see people wanting a shortcut to losing weight. Or they want that “magic pill” that’s going to allow them to keep living life the exact same way they have, but be healthy at the same time. I’m sorry, but it just doesn’t work that way.

Don’t be discouraged, though. You CAN create a healthy lifestyle and still enjoy yourself. It just needs to be in moderation.

You’ve made the decision to be healthy. You’re already doing the exercise.

Now it’s time to reign in that nutrition. You’re worth the effort.
