I'm not much of a cook, and I live alone, so eating out is the easy solution for me. To talk myself into eating at home more often, I made a SparkStreak goal for myself: "Cook dinner at home" 4 out of 7 days. The last two weeks, I've made it 7/7, and I've lost three and a half pounds! Can't help but think there's a correlation.
I never leave clean dishes in the dishwasher; I run it before I leave for work and empty it when I get home. That way, I never have to wonder whether the dishes are clean or dirty. If they're in there, they're dirty.
If you've fallen short on one or more of your goals (as I have), instead of beating yourself up, make a change today. Even if you've fallen short on several, pick one today and intentionally meet it. That may inspire you to meet another. Soon your intentional thinking has you back on track.
I buy bags of individually flash-frozen chicken breasts and frozen veggies and keep them on hand for nights when I don't feel like spending much time cooking. I can cook a healthy, filling, low-cal, low-sodium meal in 10-15 minutes.
