Don't go to bed without sparking at least once during the day !

Even on the long days when I leave the house before 7am and don't get home till after 10pm, I log on to Sparkpeople and make sure to at least record my food intake and activities. This keeps me honest and on track !

Keep tracking !

Even on days I feel completely motivated or too rushed and stressed out to THINK about eating well or exercising, I MAKE myself log in and track my food and exercise ....just holding myself accountable keeps me focused on my goal of better health and fitness even during the most stressful of times.
