3. Special Treats Sometimes you give your loved ones special treats to show you love them. You donít give them everyday because then they wouldnít be special. Your body needs special treats too. Treat yourself to a massage, a facial, new clothes, or a mocha latte every once in awhile. When I was a teenager, my mom and I used to go running onrepparttar local school track. Afterwards, we went to this awesome ice cream shop and treated ourselves to a scrumptious sundae. We didnít overindulge allrepparttar 147275 timeÖjust once in awhile. Special treats help banish feelings of deprivation.

4. Grace How many times does your loved one say ďIím sorryĒ? And how many times do you forgive him or her? We all need grace at times, and so do you when it comes to taking care of your body. Maybe you do really well on your diet or exercise plan for two weeks, and then you fall offrepparttar 147276 wagon. For one whole week, you donít exercise and you donít follow a healthy eating plan. Thatís okay! Forgive yourself and get back on track. You donít have to completely abandon your plan because you didnít follow it perfectly.

5. Have Fun! Taking care of and loving your body doesnít have to be drudgery. Have fun! Find new low-fat recipes that contain your favorite foods. Adjust your attitude toward your health and your body. Exercise is only boring if you view it that way. Find activities you love that exercise your body. When I was in Las Vegas this past month, I was taking a walk in a local family park. I watched a dad and his two children havingrepparttar 147277 time of their life. They were riding their bikes and dad was leadingrepparttar 147278 way. He created an obstacle course that requiredrepparttar 147279 kids to ride in circles, up and down ramps, overrepparttar 147280 grass, and around various walkways. They were laughing and having a blast, while exercising their body. This dad knewrepparttar 147281 value of adding fun to a healthy routine.

So, hereís to good health and loving your body even if you donít like it!
