Be proud of yourself. Be proud of everything you accomplish, no matter how small it may seem. You’ll never be satisfied until you see what you have done as a triumph. Celebrate every victory.
Get enough sleep! If you’re exercising more than usual your body is going to need the rest even more. When you sleep your body is healing both physically and mentally and it’s going to be a hell of a lot harder to get up and go for a run if you’re grouchy and tired.
Your mentality plays a big part in your success, so reward your triumphs, no matter how small, and avoid bringing yourself down.
Moderation is key. Eating too much of anything isn’t good for you.
Keep on keepin on! The only one standing in your way is you. Figure out what motivates you and make use of it, don’t let your mind give up before your legs (or whatever body part you happen to be using) need to.
Drink 2 glasses of water before every meal. It will keep you from overeating.
If you’re hungry, EAT (preferably something healthy). There’s no reason to starve yourself and depriving yourself will make you binge more often or worse.
Don’t exercise every day. Your body needs to have a rest day at least once a week because when you build muscle you actually tear it and your body fills in the tear with you muscle. If you don’t rest once in a while it can actually be damaging.
Don’t do the same exact workout every time you exercise. Not only will you get bored, your body will also get used to it and stop benefiting. So switch it up!
Vary the foods you eat! Being on a diet can get boring very quickly if you stick to the same foods everyday. And, make sure you include proteins, plenty of vegetables, and whole grains (stay away from white bread, but Quaker instant oatmeal for breakfast is low in calories and keeps you full) in your diet.
