1. know the difference between indulging and nurturing. you regret indulgences, while nurturing leaves you feeling good about yourself.

2. water really matters - drink lots and replace other beverages with it as often as possible.

3. you'll face a few bumps along the way, so be prepared to get back up, dust yourself off, and get back on track as quick as you can
