I don't know about you but when I start something new, I jump in head first. I give it all I've got. 100%. Go big or go home. I'm doing the happy dance! My "excited self" is energized and my "Inner Critic" is on mute. Who is the Inner Critic? It's the voice that whispers "You can't do it. You're not going to make it. You've tried this before and it never works." Usually by Day 3, my Inner Critic has figured out how to unmute himself and he is back, louder than ever. Only now he's criticizing in stereo.
So your challenge is to keep your momentum going even when your Inner Critic is whispering in your ear. Here are a few tips to keep you motivated.
Head to the library and borrow lots of books on the subject you're working on. You don't need to read them cover to cover but having them to reference helps you keep your eyes on the prize.
On your mark, get set, Google! A simple google search will keep you focused and bursting with ideas.
While you're on the computer, head on over to Pintrest and put in the search bar "healthy eating." That will keep you busy for a while!
Find a trusted friend and share your goal with them. Be sure it's someone who will cheer you on. If you tell someone and they sound like your Inner Critic, RUN do not walk to the nearest exit.
A few other motivational tips are start journaling, pray and meditate on what you want. Most importantly be PROUD! SMILE! You're starting a new journey and it's going to be GREAT.
