As I was thumbing thru "SHAPE" fitness magazine I came across an article about something I talk about all the time on my Facebook page and I believe to be 100% accurate!! Here's a few tid-bits of the article!
Think Strong, Be Strong
"There's such thing as fitness self-esteem, an you want it because having this mental strength may help get you a better body, a new study revealed."
"A group of women, ages 18-30, with similar BMIs, and who did comparable amounts of exercise each week... they found that those who thought of themselves as fit and strong were able to run a little longer and lift a little heavier weights than those less self-assured."
"Truly believing that you CAN accomplish a physical task that takes endurance and strength allows you not to be afraid to put in more effort."
