Everyday people go about their lives expecting things to go pretty much the same way every day. When I notice people stuck in the "same old routine" I give them a compliment.
Sometimes I find myself falling into old (bad) habits and it's not easy to get back on track. One day I realized I was letting others convince me to "go ahead and eat" or to skip my exercise "just this once."
I have a hard time drinking 8 glasses of water a day. Finally I started filling soda bottles with water and sipping on them off and on. I stopped worrying about how much I was drinking & it took the pressure off!
Carpool to stores, shop around for best prices, then cook/prepare your lunches/meals for the next week.
My depression makes self worth & motivation a challenge. I try to ignore my negative thoughts. I talk frankly with my 7 yr old about how bad obesity feels and why people need to be healthy - healthy, not skinny. I fake motivation when it's gone. I applaud the tiniest success and forgive my failings.
