New Attempt. Reach those Goals!

I've been at this weight loss "journey" for years. Up it goes, down it goes, where it stops nobody knows. Ack!!!!

I want 2015 to be THE year. THE year of ME!!! This is the year where I put my needs first. In weight loss, in work, in love. Figuring out how to be the best me I can be.

I want to feel good in my own skin again. I want to be happy and at peace. Where all the ups and downs of life don't affect my me or bring me down.

Clean slate, new plan. ...

Snacking can make or break your eating plan. Eating the wrong snacks might mean that you end up ravenously hungry by your next meal, causing you to overeat.

Be sure to incorporate healthy snacks that contain plenty of fiber. You will want to plan them into daily allotment of calories.

This will make you a Smart Snacker! emoticon

When you feel like your in a rut, sometimes you just need to review what to do. See if there is anything your missing. Here is a list of things to check.

1. Try a short workout. Even five minutes is better than nothing. For ideas browse Spark Peoples video library or workout generator.

2. Try a new recipe. Cooking healthy foods can be fun and it never has to be bland.

3. Eat a healthy breakfast. Your morning meal sets the stage for the rest of your day, so start it off right! Get lots of breakfast ideas here on Spark People.

4. Drink your water, try adding fruit for a flavorful twist. Try to aim for 8 cups each day and you’ll feel the difference!

5. Look at Motivational SparkPages. Seeing how others overcome similar struggles and obstacles can be a great source of motivation.

6. Track your food & water today. No matter how it adds up, you’ll learn from it.

7. Update your SparkPage. It’s a visual way to track your ups and downs, but also your progress.

8. Share your goals. Whether you post them on the Message Boards or share them with a friend, you’ll be more accountable.

9. Exercise for 10 minutes. Jump rope, march in place, or do some crunches. Small amounts do add up to something big!

10. Find a buddy. Get support from friends, whether you need someone to listen or a mentor to give you ideas and encouragement.

11. Take a walk. Don’t worry about how long or far you go—just get out there!

12. Create a motivational collage. Include pictures of your goal and reasons why you want to get there.

13. Go shopping for some healthy foods. Use this shopping list for ideas.

14. Check the nutrition facts before you go out to eat. That way, you can make an informed choice.

15. Ride your bike. Even a leisurely ride has benefits for your body and mind.

16. Work in the yard. Gardening and yard work is a great way to add activity to your day.

17. Take the stairs. Even if this is the only thing you do all day, you’ll feel stronger for it.

18. Rack up those SparkPoints! You earn them for every healthy task you do on the site—talk about motivating! Aim for a certain milestone, such as 100 points, and then reward yourself with a SparkGoodie!

19. Listen to an inspirational song. Better yet, make a playlist of them so you can turn to it whenever you need a boost.

20. Re-start your SparkPeople program. Sometimes it’s easier to get back on track when you have a clean slate.

21. Measure your portions. It’s a simple way to learn how much you’re eating.

22. Eat a piece of fruit. Even if 5-9 servings of fruit and vegetables sounds impossible to you, one is doable.

23. Slow down during meals. You’ll be less likely to overeat and more likely to enjoy your meal.

24. Play! What kids call “play,” we often call “exercise.” Play a sport, a game, or use the playground equipment to bring the fun back into fitness.

25. Learn something new. Sometimes simply taking a quiz or reading an article about nutrition, fitness, or health can change your mindset and get you back on track.

In getting fit, losing one point isn’t the end of the world. It happens to the best of them. In fact, if you can consistently win a few more points than you lose, you may end up becoming a winner. With healthy eating and exercising, as long as you’re consistently out-stepping your steps back, you’re ahead of the game. If you expect perfection (and many of us do), you’re setting yourself up for disappointment and guilt.
