Lose the "All or Nothing" Mentality

It's important to ease back into your healthy habits the same way SparkPeople started you slowly when you first came to the site. Try to focus on the things that are holding you back: if you are reluctant to commit to a full workout, try doing just 10 minutes a few times a day. emoticon

Push the reset button

Bad day? Blow your calories? No problem. You can push the reset button anytime. If I've gone off track, whether it's for a month or a meal, I literally stop, take a moment to breathe deeply, and imagine myself pushing a giant RESET button. The image lets me release what I've done and move forward.

Start TODAY

Do not start tomorrow. Do not have a "last supper". Do not wait until you have more time. Start right now! Didn't eat a good breakfast? It doesn't matter - time to start tracking and planning your healthy dinner for tonight. You deserve to be feeling better and in control right now.

Waking up to a new day

Every morning is a completely new day to start over and get back on track. No matter what happened yesterday, today is the day you will once again work on being healthy and fit. Say that every morning when you wake up

Forgive yourself

We all make slips. Don't beat yourself up but just remind yourself this moment is a new moment that you can start anything you want.

Easy Additional Exercise

I have stopped looking for parking places that are near the door of a store and started making use of the further ones. This way I get in some exercise walking to and from the store. This exercise is of course in addition to and not in place of regular exercises.

Housekeeping Motivation or How to Cut Down on Clutter

Every Monday, I am weirdly drawn to the TV show, "Hoarders" and the next day, I start throwing away clutter. Because of that show, I have gotten rid of lots things and the Goodwill people love me! emoticon

Tracking Exercise

I am sometimes a reluctant exerciser. But, if I am participating in a challenge and post it there or on my tracker in the afternoon, then I make sure it happens that day. I am committed to honesty, even if I'm not committed to the exercise.

Track those calories!

Use the nutrition tracker - even on days that you go over. The nutrition tracker has helped keep me motivated, and helps with meal planning. Each night, I prepare my foods for work the next day and go ahead and enter them into the tracker. I can then plan a healthy dinner based on the totals.

Getting Your Fiber?

When I hit my first plateau, someone suggested adding fiber to the nutrition tracker. Turns out I was often under the range. Adding more sped up my progress!
