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.
Don't beat yourself up! Learn from your mistakes, but don't dwell on them. Reset and move ahead.
So what do we do? Anything. Something. So long as we just don't sit there. If we screw it up, start over. Try something else. If we wait until we've satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late. Lee Iacocca
Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday's success or put its failures behind and start over again. That's the way life is, with a new game every day, and that's the way baseball is. Bob Felle
If you fail the first time that's just a chance to start over again. Lenny Wilkens quotes
Begin your life today, and again tomorrow. - Jonathan Lockwood Huie
So long as you have courage and a sense of humor, it is never too late to start life afresh. - Freeman Dyson
I find that motivation starts waning if I do not treat it as its own muscle group. I need to schedule workouts for my motivation, determination and mental strength, just like I would schedule cardio, stretching or strength training.
Once a month, I schedule 24 hours to rethink my plan, update goals, work on my motivation collage, take measurements, put happy reminders on the fridge, remember why I'm doing this and hit the big fat Reset button. It's a chance to forgive myself for all my mistakes and move forward with a smile!
