Forgive myself

One of the things I used to do so much, and still do at times, is beat myself up over a mistake of whatever kind. I have to forgive myself and move forward. Beating myself up with only keep me in a self-defeating cycle.

Forget about your mistakes (after learning from them of course)

I sometimes have a problem at night and it shows up on the scale the next morning. However, I've learned that the faster I forget about it and get back on track, the better!

Do what you were doing to be successful

If tracking and exercise worked for you and you've abandoned it for a while, go back to doing what works for you.

One Hour at a Time

I just keep telling myself "one hour at a time" to get through difficult days - to remind myself that each hour I stay strong is an hour closer to my goals.

80/20

I stay on track 80% of the time with exercise and nutrition. If I have an occasional treat and bust thru my calorie or carbs, that's OK. If I slack off a day, that's OK. This keeps me from kicking over the traces and going crazy!

The past doesn't determine the future

This thought is the key for me getting back up and trying again. It's so easy to feel like I've failed, I'm a failure, and I'll never be able to keep up good work, but it's not true. Just because I've had a bad day, week, month... doesn't mean today or tomorrow will be bad, too.

NEVER say DIET

If you look at this as a DIET, it's easy to find yourself failing because our weight will fluctuate (sometimes daily). I've chosen to live a healthy lifestyle--therefore each choice I make is about what's good for me. If one choice wasn't so good, that's okay because the next choice will be!

Take it one meal at a time

We all have those time when the unexpected comes up and we didn't properly plan ahead. Often time we feel like we blew it. However, that isn't the case. One meal will not destroy everything you have been working hard for. Go into the next meal the way you normally would.
