Time to get back on track.

A toad trip or visit to relatives for a few days can really shake up my routine. I want to be congenial so I eat what is served. The hard thing is to get back to my routine when I come home. First, it is important to eat a healthy breakfast and make sure to have healthy snacks in between meals. Don't allow yourself to get hungry and be tempted to reach for a munchies. I like to have some vegetable soup or a V8. An apple sliced with almond or peanut butter helps. emoticon

Don't Judge Yourself - Just Move Forward

When you have eaten more than your recommended calories or skipped a workout or ate that full bag of chips, don't beat yourself up! Still be sure to track whatever you ate, but move on. Everyone slips. Everyone! Keep your overall goals in mind (go over them after the slip-up) and look forward to the next day. No matter how many times you "fall", you can always get back up and still be successful.

Don't Wait for Tomorrow: Start Today

When you put off diet change, exercise, etc till tomorrow you will find that tomorrow never comes. You forget, find an excuse, or just loose motivation. Start today; even if it's drinking an extra glass of water of going for a short walk after a meal; you'll thank yourself tomorrow.

Never Give Up

If I get off track, I do not berate myself. As soon as I can, I get back on track. Broken ankle - gained weight, choice is to give up - NO! Start again. Losing family members to cancer...do not give in....keep going....give myself as much grace as I would give a friend ..start again. I am not a quitter emoticon

Don't beat yourself up

I take a warm shower + drink lots of water + journal about the experience. The next day I eat normally and continue to hydrate.

Slowly move forward, never move backward

Do you feel overwhelmed by the challenges ahead for getting fit and healthy? The secret is to start with the tiniest improvement and then slowly, steadily add to it, never moving backwards. For example, the first day do just one sit up. Day two add another. Every day add one, never subtract! - and soon you'll be doing a full routine. Same with food: Day one: Eat half a bagel, instead of a full bagel. The next day, eat a quarter bagel, day three, no bagel. Slow and steady wins the race! emoticon
