The best way for me to stay on track is to be mindful. It is not just eating something that is not healthful, but eating something unhealthful and not thinking about it...until later. So knowing this can happen, this is my plan to get back on track:
1. Try to exercise (walking is best if I feel full) as soon as possible after going off track. This will start burning the calories and improve digestion. I hate to feel too full.
2. Eat more lightly the next day or so. Don't forget to keep up the exercise!
3. Be forgiving to myself and don't dwell on getting off track. Begin with renewed vigor and determination.
I am now in the maintenance phase of being fit, but I still need to be diligent about what I eat and exercising my body. It is really all about a healthy lifestyle and enjoying life more fully because I feel strong and healthy.
