I have an imaginary restart button in my head that I push for a fresh start after any slip ups or mistakes I make. It's refreshing and has been so very helpful in breaking the negative cycle of feeling guilty and then out of guilt, making even more poor choices. Stop beating yourself up! We all make mistakes! Push your restart button & move forward to a healthier you!
If you feel good, you'll do more to feel better; dress up in your favorite outfit that you feel good in; put on your favorite perfume..walk out the door feeling good about yourself and then go have a healthy fantastic day.
Whether it be trying a new form of exercise or healthy food that intimidates you - remember that the quest for better health is a JOURNEY and, as such, comes with the potential for new experiences to be had along away.......I just broke away from my age-related angst and tried ZUMBA - it was AWESOME and I did, indeed, live to tell the tale! So hang in there and don't be afraid to try something new!
If you have fallen off tack, be honest about why and what it will take to find consistency. Is what you are doing sustainable? Are you eating out of boredome, anger, depression? What are the goals of your journey? Getting honest is the best first step
Take things one step at a time and set small realistic goals. I have been setting my goals too high and get depressed and quit. Now I see that if I set my goals smaller that I will be more likely to achieve them and maintain them and eventually reach goal.
I could eat bread until the world ends. I found Kangaroo Itsy-Bitsy Pockets at the grocery, and since they were on sale for $1, thought I'd try them. They are great little pita pockets, at 40 calories/serving. I use them for sandwiches, in place of tortillas, and for personal pitza crusts. Love them!
