DON'T LET THIS LIFESTYLE CHANGE OR ANY OTHER GOAL YOU SET BE A SOURCE OF STRESS
Just know that by making this change in your life, you are taking a step to a better, healthier you. Not everyone has the courage to take that first step.
If you have a bad day, you eat outside of your window, or you binge, do not let that feeling of failure take over. You will stress yourself out! That is why I do not want you to count every single calorie you are putting into your body. That is overwhelming and super stressful.
We live day to day. Not every day is perfect. Start to acknowledge your mistakes, accept them, and move on. Think positive. Stress just causes more difficulties for us to reach our fitness goals, so relax!
