Forgive the slipups

A friend once told me that Oprah said forgiveness is about recognizing you cannot change the past. When I slip, I am first honest with my self (trying to figure out why it happened is important), then I forgive myself, understanding today is another day!

Honesty with self

When I am off track, I stop logging honestly, and 'forget' that I ate things. Then I realized, not logging everything is only lying to myself. I need to be honest with myself to be successful. Now I log everything! :)

Variety is the spice to success!

I have found exercising easier to stick with when I mix it up, doing a variety of things. Doing the same thing over and over can get pretty boring, so trying different things, new things, and old things, really helps!

Keep a journal

A journal can help you understand your emotions, how they relate to what you do, including what you eat. Seek first to understand. Once you understand you can make the changes you need to make.
