Yep. Consistency is the key. I have built a habit of daily exercise by promising myself (and actually getting out of the recliner and doing it) 10 minutes of cardio a day. That's it. I almost always do more, but on those days that I just don't feel great, I have kept my promised to myself and can sit back down after 10 minutes, if I choose. No guilt.
In general, guilt is a motivation and mood killer. I have really been trying to focus on removing guilt from this process as much as possible. Emotional eating is my biggest problem (mostly eating to numb anxiety), and guilt is one of the most toxic and useless emotional states I can think of.
Writing down everything I eat has also been very helpful. I can have whatever I want, as long as I write it down and am accountable for it. This has helped with guilt and anxiety as well.
Have a happy, healthy day!
