Self Help Motivation

Self discipline...not an easy task to follow and many of us struggle with it even dough we know the importance and benefits.
Not many know that self-discipline can be strengthened and developed just like any other skill to give you the power to follow your decisions and stick to them so you can reach your goal.
For a healthy life style, you have to control yourself. Our limited willpower is like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger it becomes.
I know people who after two months of regular exercise experienced less impulse spending, junk food consumption and smoking. Some also studied more and did more housework. The explanation must be that if you consistently do an activity that requires self-control seems to increase willpower. Makes sense to me.
Here are some tips which work for me. Get on a Schedule, have everything ready, this way you will avoid to debate with yourself to do it or not to.
Exercise with a friend if that is possible. It is more fun and you can support each other.
If exercising after work is too much, find time and do it first thing in the morning.
Have a positive attitude. Studies shows that people with positive attitude can muster more elf-control then those with a negative attitude. Listening to music that makes you happy, could be just the motivation you need.
Self-control is like a muscle. The more is flexed the bigger it gets. The more you take the challenge to resists temptation the more you build self-control.
You can do it.

You Can Eat Right and Still Cave in.

No matter how hard you work at keeping fit and eating the right food there is always the danger that you cave in at some point. I know because it happened to me.
I am doing this for years, and I have no forbidden food in my house, I do not bake keep sugar, white flour or anything else, which would tempt me.
However, I found out that I am not perfect (what a disappointment).
I was at my grandson’s wedding a Hindu wedding. The food was excellent beautifully presented and lean and to my pleasant surprise, it was no sweet table.
It was a choice of two scrumptious deserts and it was served at the table after dinner. The person sitting next to me left before desert was served, to mingle with some friends who were sitting at some distance from me. Her desert was sitting on the table next to me waiting to be consumed. I finished mine and she was still visiting with her friends at the distant table. And I was weighting and fighting with myself not to touch it. 20 minutes passed and people started to go on the dance floor. Everybody at the table has finished eating. That was the only desert uneaten and it was standing out like a sore finger. The help started clearing the tables and I couldn’t let that desert go I ate the whole thing and enjoyed it to the last crumb.
Was I ashamed of myself....yes I was, did I feel, did I feel embarrassed
Yes. Did I forgive myself...absolutely? I joined the dancing crowd and never gave a second thought.
