Don'T Beat Yourself Up

This Sparked Me!

If I have a week where I eat everything in sight and gain a pound or two I don't let it get to me. I'm not perfect and I'm not going to change years of bad habits and unhealthy choices when it comes to eating overight.

I'll buy extra of my favorite healthy snack like strawberries or mangoes the next week as a pick me up.

    You are so right! Life is not perfect, and we can't expect ourselves to be either. The important thing is that we realize it and get back on track. One of my favorite sayings: Being successful is picking yourself up one more time than you fall down... I think that's just what we need to do!

    I think this is the difference between a downward spiral, and just re-focusing. Thanks!!
