This IS ALL MENTAL. Take that to mean what you want.

Mental....it could mean, CRAZY. Or it could mean, all in your head...but, don't they both kind of mean the same thing?
Am I making sense to anyone? hahahaha
Ok....So I really struggle at night. When I get home from work, I just want to give in and go back to my old eating habits. I have battled this pretty much ALL week.
But changes are not easy to make, right.
So, about an hour ago, I just posted a blog. And I was all frustrated because it's been 4 days since I have started counting calories along with working out, and the scale wasn't showing a smaller number and waaaa waaaaa waaaaa!
I was THIS CLOSE to NOT working out tonight and saying, "Forget it. I'm ordering a pizza."
But I have been working out CONSISTENTLY. I am on week 3 of turbofire without missing ONE workout. And that is AWESOME for me. So I thought, if I don't work out and go eat that pizza, how am I going to feel afterward....tomorrow.....this weekend?
If I DO quit being a baby and go workout and then stick with my eating plan how am I going to feel tomorrow....this weekend. Regardless of what the scale says?
So, guess what I did? I WORKED OUT. Even though I didn't get started until 8 PM and I was starving and a pizza did sound delicious, but I knew I would be disappointed in myself if I chose that option.
So I did tonight's workout which was HIIT 15 and Tone 30. I find myself saying this a lot during workouts, especially the strength training ones.... "DAMN, CHALENE!"
While I was working out and challenging myself, that pizza didn't sound delicious at all anymore to me. And I thought to myself..."Katie, this is all mental. This is all in your head."
I have gotten in SUCH a bad habit as I have grown up into an adult of DWELLING on the negative and just throwing in the towel before I really ever prove to myself what I am capable of.
There really IS something to positive self talk.
I can't tell you how much HAPPIER I am with myself now that I worked out instead of getting that pizza.
And I still weigh the same one hour later. hahaha.
If I can push through the negative self talk and NOT Self-sabatoge my efforts, then YOU CAN TOO!
Love- ME! Have a great night everyone!
