Being HONEST with myself

In order for me to re-start my quest to losing weight again, I had to be HONEST with myself. I find that I make excuses for a lot of my bad habits that lead me to my current weight. For example, I'm not as big as some folks; I still have time to lose the weight; I can't workout because I don't have time and can't ruin my hair (African American women know what I mean about the hair excuse); and I'm this way due to genetics. Well... I had to start being HONEST by saying I have 1,001 excuses.

The Three P's (Planning, Prepping, Portion Control)

Planning and preparing my meals in advance allows me to also practice portion control for a successful week.
I go grocery shopping on Friday evenings or Saturday mornings to purchase my weekly fruits and veggies and any other items I need to make my lunches and dinners for the week. I then prep my salads and dishes and even get out the appropriate bowls/containers for portion controlling my lunches. Once I do all of this, I make it a point to stick to the menu plan for at least four days.

Remembering That I'm Human

Remembering that I'm human allows me to forgive myself when I mess up. I am my worst critic and sometimes my desire to succeed at something causes me to want to be immortal. If I allow myself to be human in my SPARKS journey, then I know I can do this.
