Each day is a new day. A day to eat right, to exercise and to find the positives in life even when there can be so many things that get you down.
It all comes down to this.
I steam vegies(whatever you like) add 1 cup whole wheat noodles 1tbs grated parm cheese and ff italian dressing it is delicious If you want ytou can add chic or turkey breast for protein.
Want a sense of an accomplishment? Hike. Locate a hill nearby, climb to the top. Get the reward of beautiful scenery when you get there. And to boot, it burns a crazy amount of calories.
when some thing upsets me I want to go eat comfort foods or worse yet junk food I just keep telling myself that that is not what I want and I go get one of my good healthy treats instead
When I look at workouts or pictures of an exercise I haven't tried, I take it with me when I go to the gym.
To make canned soup go further and to add more veggies I add a can of green beans. YUMMY!
Plan and track your food early in the day. If you make a change make the substitute right away. Look at your tracker throughout the day to make sure you're sticking with it.
Carry a "worry" stone in your pocket that you've written "SPARK" on. This is to remind you in a positive mode and slow you down when you are eating in a social situation with friends. A quiet reminder of who you are and what you are doing that is important. Think Spark Positive.
Eat breakfast every morning so that you'll have fuel to last you throughout the day and less likely to snack during the day.
