Day 91 - It's up to me

Ownership involves figuring out what works as well as what doesn’t work. Once you master the concept of ownership, you’ll be amazed at how it will improve your outcomes.
By the way, I LOVE this lesson. I think ownership is such a key to long-term success.
1. Create a list of what works for you with your eating and exercise plans.
Eating similar meals a lot of the time works. For example, breakfast and lunch are usually the same, day after day.
Taking walks every day if possible. Also doing my stronger exercise plan two to three times per week.
Keeping protein bars on hand and readily available.
Eating dessert only when it’s “special.”
2. Now make a list of what doesn’t work and how you can avoid doing those things.
Giving in to dessert when eating out.
Eating ice cream every evening.
Postponing exercise. I quickly slide into a pattern of skipping it every day.
3. Consider how to own your plan and make it personal for your own needs.
I have to remind myself that I am in charge of my life and my weight management. I also need to use my tools regularly such as identify what I feel or need and take care of it instead of reaching for food.
