13 MISTAKES THAT CAUSE RESOLUTIONS TO FAIL. THIS IS THE ARTICLE I CHOSE ON SPARK TODAY.
Now – we could probably list all 13 b/c we’ve done them. So I’m choosing my Top 5 to seriously work on.
1 – MAKING RESOLUTIONS THAT ARE TOO BIG – Tip: On a sheet of paper write down your goal and as many of the tiny steps you can break it in to. …SEE BECK BOOK IN #3…
2 EATING FOOD YOU HATE – Tip: I find myself eating the same low carb foods over and over until I am sick. By adding my foods into my Spark App, I have something like a menu. I can just scroll down and new ideas are waiting for me to add them to my day. I even have reasonable salads from McDonalds/Arbys/Burger King there. How neat is that?
3 – FOCUSING ON SUBTRACTING INSTEAD OF ADDING – Tip: don’t try to erase all negative habits at once. I particularly use the BECK DIET SOLUTION for this. We have a Spark Team by that name and the book/workbook are wonderful. It’s all about baby steps and building good habits, one week at a time.
4 – Letting the scale be your only measure of success – Tip : Instead, use a tape measure each week. Or record blood pressure.
5 – NOT CHANGING MY ENVIRONMENT - Tip: Clean out the sweets from your house/car/work. Lay out work clothes the night before..SEE BECK BOOK.
Hope these might strike a chord with you. They sure did with me.
