Self-talk, Positive Mental Attitude, and Self-Efficacy

How do you talk to yourself?How do you express yourself to or around others when it comes to health, fitness, or eating?

  
Do you say anything such as:

‘I’m always going to be fat.’

‘I don’t care what I eat today.’

‘I’ll start (a diet, working out, taking care f myself) tomorrow.’

Do you make fun of your flaws?

Do you joke about being unhealthy, overweight, or not caring about your health?

Do you critique others (strangers even) to friends or family in a negative or disgust way, but you yourself make mistakes are unhappy with yourself?

Do you beat yourself up for indulging?

Or allow yourself whatever and however much you want, eating mindlessly or fast, because other things in life are going on?

Or go through phases or restriction then over abundance?

Are you either ‘all-in’ or ‘not in at all’ when it comes to training, eating, or health behaviors?

How we talk to ourselves, about ourselves, or even about others in regards to health, fitness, eating behaviors directly influences our beliefs and thereby our actions. Even if you’re joking, having a bad day, or around those who could care less about themselves; taking your health and wellness for granted through words and actions is only hurting you. 
I see so many people today, coming to me, or searching online or locally, for THE plan, THE ANSWER, to their troubles with eating, weight, fitness, or health concerns. They just want someone to tell them what to do, do it for them, and it to be done. But we don’t change by having a plan handed to us. 
These PEOPLE NEED TO DO WORK, themselves to succeed and change. Work in terms of thoughts, beliefs, and then followed by actions.
