Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
I am in control of what I do next no matter what the "slip up" may have been.
In order to reach our goals, with me must first be truly honest with ourselves. This means owning up to how much we really eat, how little we exercise and whatever else we do to sabotage ourselves.
When I get off track it's because I go to the store and buy my lunch. I find that if I keep my cards and cash home, it forces me to bring my lunch and stay away from the store and the food I love buying!
It's okay to start fresh when you're having trouble staying consistent. Sometimes evaluating what isn't working is the next step for continued (or new!) success.
When I get a craving for junk food, I head for a toothbrush. Brushing my teeth makes me feel "clean" and I don't want to mess up the way my teeth feel. Plus it leaves an aftertaste of mint (or cinnamon, etc).
Had to sit around for a month. To get back on track all I did was log on and start Sparking with the food log and exercising. In no time at all I feel motivated ---just by Sparking it. it is just a wonderful feeling
When I get off track, the best way for me to get back on track is to plan everything. I make a meal plan for the upcoming weke, do my gracer shopping, and prep as much in advance as possible. That way, I have a plan to follow so that I get back to following a regimin.
I've been falling off here and there, no gains thank goodness, but no losses either. It was a bit hard to get started but all my sparkfriends made the difference ! They helped to motivate me right back on track to get started again, let your friends help you that's one of my secrets to success.
When I am off track, I stop logging honestly, and 'forget' that I ate things. Then I realized, not logging everything is only lying to myself. I need to be honest with myself to be successful. Now I log everything! :)
When I have an urge to eat and I am only in the mood for sugary or greasy treats, I wash things. If the food makes it through the wash, then I can eat it. Imagine washed potoato chips, washed cookies, donuts and cakes. YUCK! But a washed piece of fruit or veggies? DELICIOUS!
