Be Honest With Yourself

Keep tracking even when you've made bad choices. The process of tracking keeps you honest with yourself which is so important in making a change. It's also more likely that you will stay on track after logging it all instead of just feeling like you've already "blown it" and giving up on the day.

    Honesty is the best policy!
This applies to yourself also in doing things for yourself also. No cheating too!

    I struggled with this last night. I hadn't completely blown it, but, I ate more than I usually do. I had to force myself to track all of the things I ate. I told myself, "I can lie to myself all I want, but my body knows the truth, and lying is not going to change what I put in my body." So I did. I know I have to try a little harder today, and work a little harder. But I can forgive myself, learn, and move on! emoticon
