When a Cappy is on a diet she means business. She looks for success and aims to achieve her goals. She will not play around on her diet and is more motivated to get where she wants to get. But sometimes she can get a bit side-tracked. So here are my tips, which are mainly aimed at the personality of a cappy, to follow through and see the results you have always wanted!
1) "Cheat Days"
To kick things off I decided to start with the first thing that comes to people's minds when they hear the word diet... The CHEAT DAY. Personally, I do not "diet" or think of a healthy lifestyle as "dieting". I prefer to make a change that I can use for the rest of my life rather than a short period of time-but that's not the point. Capricorns should not have a cheat day. You are a person who is very dedicated and loyal. Cheating is not in your vocabulary. Or at least it shouldn't be. You will feel like you ruined your diet/lifestyle and be tempted to give up and admit failure. DON'T stress if you do fall short as you can pick yourself up faster than most, and then learn from your mistakes.
As a capricorn, you tend to not reward yourself as much as others. That is not necessarily a bad thing as your "rewards" are hard to come by and make you work that much harder. As far as diets are concerned, you should reward yourself when you reach goals. This does not have to be food. Try things like: Getting a massage, go shopping, walk your dogs(rewarding not only yourself but your pooch too will feel great-plus you'll burn more calories which is a reward in itself) or even getting rid of baggie clothes.
As I said earlier, you are very self-motivated but when you start to notice that your eyes are starting to wonder towards that fast-food/ junk, you'll need a little external help. Try searching for quotes to keep you going. My personal favourites are "Won't quit till I'm fit" or "There is no one giant step that does it, it's a lot of little steps". Pictures may also help if you are more visual. Use whatever anything that reminds you of where you are going or will get your blood pumping for the gym/ activity. Clothes also could help. If you use it as a goal or motivation to shed those extra kilograms.
I always enjoy recording my progress as it feels like I've done something. It could also motivate you or keep track of how you are doing, especially if you have an event/deadline coming up. Don't be shy to record your failures too as this will help you learn and stay motivated to stay on track.
Don't stress yourself out. You have enough other things to stress about. Take it easy, don't think too much about it if it makes your heart race and beat yourself up. You can do it, you have to trust yourself to do it and keep going because you are the only person who can change your story whether it be success or failure. The only thing that really matters is what you think of yourself.
Hope this helps anyone who feels like they are just not getting anywhere with their diet. Comment if you have any other tips, or stories. I love reading what you guys have to say (: Remember, you are beautiful not matter what your size is because beauty comes from within.
