Snack Baggies

I find myself gorging on snacks before the day is out pecially IF I don't eat breakfast. I am making it a habit to pack 1 bad thing with my good things. So when I am stressed or crazy at work. I limit myself to one itty bitty sandwich snack bag. I have "pyche-co--loo looed" my fat mind. Jeti mind trick 1,228. emoticon

When I don't want to workout? I put on my workout clothes

I can't remember where I learned this, but putting on my workout clothes when I don't feel like working out somehow gives me just the boost I need to get me out the door. It works 99% of the time. So keep those tanks, tees, sports bras and biking shorts ready to go. Once you're dressed the reasons not to workout suddenly disappear.

Sugar Free Individually Wrapped Chocolate

Instead of telling myself that I CAN'T have chocolate or a piece of candy every now and then, I've started buying a package of the Sugar-Free Chocolates. They are individually wrapped, often times are dark chocolate, and there's not very many in the package. I know that they are there when I get a craving and they are so good. I have also had the Skinny Cow candies. It's just a sweet treat while maintaining portion control and I feel satisfied afterwards.

Now is the time!

I try to pick myself up as soon as possible & take a small step toward restarting with a fresh attitude where I left off. I try to discard the notion that I have to wait until tomorrow or Monday.

One step at the time IS real!

I was so down that I couldn't build up some kind of exercise streak and then I decided to just walk, just walk. At first it took me a month to do 250 minutes and this month, I did 250 minutes in just 9 days! So, "one step at the time" IS the real thing. It does work. emoticon

Back on track after illness or injury

Baby steps build big successes. Forget about where you were before you needed to interrupt or change the path of your journey and evaluate where you are right now. Your muscles have memories and will come back as long as you just simply get moving. Taking that first 10 minute work out with Coach Nichol or walking to the end of the street. The point is to just do and do it consistently. Gently move back into the marathon you! It won't take long and if you do it right, you'll stay healthy.

Use the Nutrition Tracker

Staying on track, by using the Nutrition Tracker EVERY day, is an avoidance technique for me. If you never get "off track" there's no need to "get back on". This past eight weeks of holiday parties and lots of tempting treats show results on my nutrition tracker were often NOT within my goals, but I've been ON Track every day! Now, I'm focusing on GOALS once again . . . quite happily and successfully!

Failure doesn't mean you are a failure... it just means you haven't succeeded yet.

Remember you are never a failure unless you stop trying because "failure" is merely a temporary experience so u can learn from it toward success. emoticon
