Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
Your are the captain of your ship, which is your body. If you're off course, you don't throw up your hands and let the wind take you away. You gradually correct course and head for where you want to go. There is dignity in quiet strength and perseverance.
I recently hit a mental plateau - my body and my mind were not in agreement with my workout regime. My mind decided it was bored with what we were doing and made it real easy to cut my workouts short. I needed a new plan of action - totally revamped my workout.
What I found has been different this time for me is I NEVER, EVER start over or from Day 1 when I have a slip, I forgive myself gently and start my normal planning and workouts. Starting over reminds us of all the failed diets, which can lead to collapse..every year, month, day still counts!

Never dwell on past failures. We should learn from them, but we must always look ahead and try to do better tomorrow. Time only moves forward, as should we.

When I fall off track, I just have to grit my teeth and get back on track! It's no fun, but as Spark People know, one little movement in the right direction is a start!
This not a race but a journey, our path is narrow. If we fall down we brush ourselves off and get back on our path and keep on going. Your can do it.
As I work towards getting better in all areas of my life, I am one of those people who wants to do it all at once. However, I have learned that I have to build these habits a piece at a time if they are going to be lifelong habits rather than a quick fix.
