Just do it!

Even if I've messed up and don't feel like getting back on track, I do SOMETHING that is healthy. 9 times out of 10 it feels so good that before I know if, I'm right back on track!

Food tracking

Tracking food is one of the hardest habits for me to embrace. So far I have managed to track for 5 days in a row. I have bought me a little notebook with a pretty cover that fits right in my purse. I makes it much easier to take everywhere I go and it looks cute when I use it. emoticon

late night snacking

When I am relaxing at night I always want to snack- mindlessly. I go to bed so I won't snack. In the morning I wake happier because I did not give into silly mindless eating. emoticon

Remembering That I'm Human

Remembering that I'm human allows me to forgive myself when I mess up. I am my worst critic and sometimes my desire to succeed at something causes me to want to be immortal. If I allow myself to be human in my SPARKS journey, then I know I can do this.

Forgiveness

If I overeat or have a high calorie snack I don't go to pieces, berate myself or give up. I sit down, and figure how to make up for it, such as exercising at a higher intensity. In the past I would call myself a failure and give up. No more!

Forgive Yourself

You don't have to be perfect for every second of every day. Who cares if you still hate broccoli or only do your 30 minutes of exercise and then stop?! The point is that every positive step you take is a step closer to your goal. Don't beat yourself up!
