Label it

I have put Dymo labels on the backs of plugs and chargers. That way you don't unplug vital appliances, you can unplug non-vital ones to save energy, and you know which charger is the one you need.

Consistency Means Most of the Time... Not Every Day

I've read it's about what you do MOST of the time, not ALL the time. It's okay to miss one day of exercise or eating healthy. Just bounce back to your routine the next day!

Do it for ME!

I do things for everyone else in my life at the expense of my health. Now - I work my priorities around me (fitness, nutrition and sleep) - because that is what everyone else in my life (who truly cares about me) wants as well - a healthy, balanced, active ME!

Forgive Yourself

After a slip up, I forgive myself. I allow myself the right to enjoy the food I ate at that time, let it go, and move on with my life.

Don't let sickness get in your way!

When you are sick, and too weak to exercise, don't let that get you off track. Journalise your food, and post on the message boards. Earn as many Sparks points as you can. Then you will stay motivated, and be ready to go back to your normal schedule when you get well.

Bad day or week shouldnt cause failure

I had a really stressful week last week, I didnt eat as good as I should have but I didnt eat as bad as I use to. I was still somewhat mindful. I did execise even though it felt like torture. Usually it makes me feel better

Don't throw the day away

I used to have a slip-up in the morning and throw the rest of the day away, until someone told me "if you drop an egg, do you throw the rest of the dozen on the floor? No, you make the most of what you have left!" That has stuck with me for years.
