If you are “Getting Back On It” eating & training wise then why not have a be kind to your body week of affirmations.
Instead of looking in the mirror & going YUK then steaming of down negativity highway, beating yourself up & saying all kinds of crazy stuff to yourself, use a simple affirmation to change how you feel about your body. Very simple
“I am grateful for my body” Is from Gabby B. Say it with a smile & turn a corner with how you feel & experience your body. Remember, if you are feeding yourself good clean food & nutrition.
Feed yourself good, loving positive THOUGHTS as well.
