Don't watch the clock.
Don't say you're being bad.
Don't regret what you choose to put into your body.
Don't say you're cheating.
Don't worry/stress about what other people are doing, what others may think or what others may assume. Own your actions.
Feed your body throughout the day when your brain and body need energy.

That same body that you think is fat, ugly or gross or just messed up or failed you, is the same body that you push to cross finishing lines, wakes you up in the morning to take care of your family, helps you have a productive day of work to pay the bills and is where you will live for the rest of your life.
