Post food before eating it in Nutrition Tracker

I have learned to try and post my food in the nutrition tracker prior to eating it and checking my numbers. If I don't like what I see, such as too high of sodium, then I change my eating choice.

Track your progress

Always keep a record of specifics of exercise and compare results periodically to track your progress. Sometimes, this will serve as the motivation you need for today, this week, or to keep going.

Work thru it!

Sometimes when I am exercising I get to where I just want to stop. But, I always find if I do it twice as tough to get going again. However, when I push thru it (not when it's painful), I seem to be able to work thru the feeling and it ends up being OK. So, Work thru it!

Have a good memory...someti
mes

Have a good memory but only sometimes. When it comes to hitting plateaus or stalling out, remember the times it has happened in the past and that it too will pass. But, it's also important to leave yesterday behind...it can't be changed! Today is what matters!
