When you slip and overeat or not exercise for a few days, don't allow yourself to "give up." Even if you overeat, you can still plan ahead on your tracker to eat a little for what's left of the day and just get right back to it the next day. Same with exercise, just get it in today, start slow...It is when we get into the thinking of "I already messed up, so I might as well really mess up" that we defeat ourselves. Just get right back on track and make the next choice a healthy one:)

Whenever I feel bad because I've neglected my exercise regime, eaten too much etc, I take a minute to look at all the things I have done RIGHT so far as well - this motivates me to keep going, get back on track and go for that great feeling of satisfaction all over again! 30
We're all allowed to make mistakes, right? Little slip ups aren't a problem unless we let them become habits! 252
