When you make a mistake

I find being mindful of what caused the slip up is so important.
Did I get off track with my workouts because I forgot to schedule it in? Than that's what I need to work on. Did I slip up with making a bad food choice? What can I learn from it? Do I need to learn to say "NO!" more often?

Practice the art of saying "No"

To much of my life was filled with anger and frustration because I said yes and did things I didn't really want to do. Thinking I would be a bad person if I said "No!" And this lead to anger and frustration and eventually emotional eating.
After reading the book " You Are What You Say" pages 168-170. I now know why I had the habit of saying Yes when I meant NO! It's amazing how good it feels to be able to say No when I really want to say No! Knowledge is power.

Journal ALL foods and my feelings each day.

If you don't know what your eating you won't know how much your consuming. Journaling helps to keep me honest and mindful of what and how much I'm eating. It also helps me to make better choices as well. Anything over allotted amount is emotional eating and no amount of food will take care of that. Some other kind of action is needed.

Grouping your foods

Because I eat the same kinds of foods each week. Grouping my meals make journaling my food go much faster. So I don't have to pick each food and post it one item at tune,.

Scheduling Exercise

Exercising at the same time each day is the only way I remember to do it. My time is first thing in the morning. Getting it out of the way make that rest of my day go better. And gone is the "SHOULD HAVES"

Keep track of the Positives instead of the Negatives

Keeping track of the positives in my life keeps me focused on what I do right instead of what I do wrong. That keeps me moving forward instead of backwards. Now, I cut myself some slack and keep a journal of what was positive in my day.It makes me smile just looking at that journal knowing there is nothing negative in it.
