Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
By this I mean when I'm out walking the mall where I do counting my steps there is a Food Court. Of course my brain is telling me to get a soda but I don't. Instead I reach in my tote bag that I carry along with me and drink my iced water. It's good!!
Sometimes no mateer what, you just have to do it...
Keep your goals specific and measureable. It helps you stay on track.
I've slipped up in the past, but I talk to my sister each day about if I did/did not eat right and exercise.
Whenever I start beating myself up for having a bad day, I remind myself: "Today isn't over yet!" Then I try to do something to get back on track for that day - a healthy snack, a nap, a couple sets of crunches, or even just a glass of water. Don't wait to get back on track tomorrow, do something no...
Whenever I have an off track day and just feel like throwing in the towel on the entire day, I think of this analogy:
If you get a flat tire, are you going to pull off and slash the other 3 tires? No...you fix the flat and get back on the road!
Not every workout is going to be better than the next day. Dont let it stop you from the goal.
Staying active in person is easier if you stay active on SparkPeople as well. You'll see exactly where you are doing what you should and what areas you need to pay attention to!
Look at your self and tell your self everyday I need to look at my self and do something to make my self look better. I can watch what I eat better.
Don't give up when you fall off track and be honest, really honest about portion control. I am learning this and learning that the only way to lose weight is to keep on trying and never go back to the old way of eating unhealthy and not exercising.
