Don't Judge Yourself - Just Move Forward

When you have eaten more than your recommended calories or skipped a workout or ate that full bag of chips, don't beat yourself up! Still be sure to track whatever you ate, but move on. Everyone slips. Everyone! Keep your overall goals in mind (go over them after the slip-up) and look forward to the next day. No matter how many times you "fall", you can always get back up and still be successful.

calendar girl

In order to get back on track after a rough period, I print out a weekly calendar from my computer and make a daily to do list on it including exercise, logging my food. At the end of the week, if I check everything off, I get a reward for getting things done, like a new lip gloss or an evening vegging out watching a bad romantic movie. emoticon

Quit Waiting for the "Feeling"

I recently went through a funk, and didn't have the spark I'd started with 5 mos. ago. I thought this was a feeling that would return on it's own. THEN, I realized that determination is not a FEELING that comes over me, it's a DECISION! Once I consciously decided to just DO IT, well, here I am!
