Eating Elephants

My old boss used to say "how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time" and that has really stuck with me. When I get too much going on and start getting stressed out, I take time out to make a list and "prioritize" what I need to do. Then, I take each item on the list and get them done "one bite at a time".

Mixing it up

When I hit a plateau, I mix up my diet a little. If I hit a plateau, even though I feel guilty, I will "go over" on my calories for a couple of days and then start back on my regimine. It takes a day or two but then the pounds start coming off again.
