Strategies for success
Saturday, July 20, 2013
In preparation for the Summer 5% Challenge, today's assignment was to list some of the reasons our weightloss and exercise plans have failed in the past and what we will do differently this time.
Here are mine:
1. Enforced inactivity due to injury
Strategy: schedule other forms of exercise and be diligent in doing what I can
2. Used my high levels of exercise to excuse eating too much / the wrong things.
Strategy: continue to track carefully what I eat and remember what I've learned!
3. Not believing I can lose weight and becoming despondent when the scales don't do justice to my efforts.
Strategy: focus on what I HAVE managed to achieve and reward myself for sticking to my plan.
