No matter how faithful you are in your exercise program, there will be times when you "slip" by missing exercise sessions. These slips happen for everyone. So don't beat yourself up and don't blow it out of proportion.
You can probably relate to the dieter who eats a bowl of ice cream, then says, "I blew it," and decides to eat the whole quart and start his/her diet again next month. Thinking in black and white terms ("on-diet" or "off-diet"), rather than in shades of grey, gets us in trouble. When you miss an exercise session or even a week of exercise sessions, try not to view this as a "failure."
There are times when you are probably more likely to slip; while traveling, during the holidays, when the weather is bad, or when you are feeling stressed, depressed, or tired. Try to anticipate your own "high-risk" situations for any unwanted behavior and plan for how you will deal with them when they happen.
