Don't look back!

When I need to get on track, I can't look back. I have to focus on where I want to be and not where I am coming from!

Don't beat yourself up!

If you have a day when you've overeaten,don't beat yourself up-make it your goal to reflect on why you overate so you won't do it again

Not enough chocolate in the world

Check "reports"

Whenever I have a setback I use the Reports option in sparkpeople to view my progress over time. This helps me see that one day is not much of a setback.

Break the Cycle of Poor Sleep Habits

I've been going to bed later and later at night until I finally crashed at 2:00 a.m. Last night I forced myself to be in bed by 10:00 pm. I allowed myself to watch t.v. for exactly one hour, then I switched off all the lights and turned on my ambient sound machines. This worked like a charm!

My online "Account-abili-
buddy"

I have an online buddy that I chat with daily (it only take a couple of minutes if that is all the time we have) but it makes all the difference. We set goals for each day and discuss the goals from the previous day.

No one is perfect; the secret is to accept a "failure"; live with it; and pick yourself up from there.
