Go Back To Square One

If you're stuck in a rut, go back to the first week you started your lifestyle changes. I find that remembering what I did those first 7 days often gives me a boost of self confidence-- because you know it works, you know you can do it, you just need to remember how!

Little Goals Are Just As Good!

I've learned that setting smaller goals for smaller weight loss in smaller periods of times makes me feel a lot better than one stretching over months. Let yourself see those little steps as they come and when they finally add up to the big one, that is your best reward!

Do What You Love

I've discovered that I love to do kickboxing and calisthenics much more than other forms of exercise. It's so much easier to stay active if you enjoy what you're doing. Find something you like to do rather than forcing yourself into something boring, and you'll be way more likely to stick with it!

Each Mistake Is Its Own

When I slip up, I try to remember that each mistake is individual. If I make a bad choice at lunch, I continue to try to make good choices the rest of the day. There's no point ruining the day over one tiny mishap.

Don't Beat Yourself Up

We all make mistakes. If you gained, or just made a bad choice, remember that you are human and tomorrow is a new day. Always keep going. We all know the feeling, and there's always room to fix your mistake!

Motivational Images

I made a collage featuring motivational words and pictures of inspirational celebs, clothes I want to own, and people I admire. I put it right in my living room where I can alway see it. Then when I'm watching TV and having an urge to snack, I remember exactly why I'm trying to get healthy!

Meal Planning

Grab a notebook, scan your cupboards, and plan your meals for the week using ingredients you already have on hand. Make one stop at the grocery store for that week for anything else you need. I find I have less chance to put unnecessary things in my cart if I buy only what I need for the week.

Use Small Lunch Containers

Inspired by a favourite of mine, Japanese bento lunches, if you pack your lunch in appropriate serving size containers, your lunches will be kept in the right size range and you wont overeat.
