Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
I do things for everyone else in my life at the expense of my health. Now - I work my priorities around me (fitness, nutrition and sleep) - because that is what everyone else in my life (who truly cares about me) wants as well - a healthy, balanced, active ME!
After a slip up, I forgive myself. I allow myself the right to enjoy the food I ate at that time, let it go, and move on with my life.
i put my tennis shoes on; get my keys, grab my mp3 player and go for a walk! helps me to appreciate the outdoors; i feel better when i get back whether its only 20,25 ,30 or 55 minutes!
When you are sick, and too weak to exercise, don't let that get you off track. Journalise your food, and post on the message boards. Earn as many Sparks points as you can. Then you will stay motivated, and be ready to go back to your normal schedule when you get well.
I had a really stressful week last week, I didnt eat as good as I should have but I didnt eat as bad as I use to. I was still somewhat mindful. I did execise even though it felt like torture. Usually it makes me feel better
I used to have a slip-up in the morning and throw the rest of the day away, until someone told me "if you drop an egg, do you throw the rest of the dozen on the floor? No, you make the most of what you have left!" That has stuck with me for years.
i have been lagging in enthusiasm for MANY reasons...HOWEVER...i got THE SPARK today and entered my secret code and got my 500 points for buying it and , voila, i have been re-enthused with the silly 500 sparkpoints which get me UP for producing more and finding my STREAKS...now, onto the reading
For those of us who need extra help getting and staying on track, find an accountability buddy. Find someone you trust and have them make sure you follow through with fitness and weight loss goals and commitments. I chose a trainer, but if you can find a SparkPeople buddy in your area, do it!
eat much as you can to gain weight
