Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
When I wake up, I have a note to myself "10 4 10 2 10!" - TEN one minute exercises FOR TEN minutes TO get to be a TEN (in my own mind). I do this within 15 minutes of waking up while watching the news. Helps get you going!
Start your 'recovery' before bed. Do some stretches and some meditation. Give yourself time to think positively and know that tomorrow really is another day!
It's better to just get over that doughnut or gigantic slice of double pepperoni pizza and get right back on the wagon! If you dwell on it, or get depressed over it, you're just giving into temptation. If you just go on with your Spark, you can get over the small oversight & get right back in it!
I put my scale and my measuring tape in the bathroom in plain sight so I have to look at it every time I go.
To break the cycle of getting to bed later and later into the night and awaking late in the morning. I found that taking Melatonin and Valerian (all natural supplements found in most drug and health food stores), helps get to sleep earlier in the night and deepens the quality of sleep.
When my clothes start getting snug on me, I tell myself over and over time to start doing healthy things. It might take me 3 or 4 times to tell myself that, but then I think it finally sinks in. I get to business and exercise; go for walks and eat right.
Every morning is a completely new day to start over and get back on track. No matter what happened yesterday, today is the day you will once again work on being healthy and fit. Say that every morning when you wake up
Whenever I feel bad because I've neglected my exercise regime, eaten too much etc, I take a minute to look at all the things I have done RIGHT so far as well - this motivates me to keep going, get back on track and go for that great feeling of satisfaction all over again!
My high school reunion is coming up and I want to look good for it!
