Analyze Your Sparkpeople Fitness and Nutrition Reports

When I start losing focus, I can look at the Reports to see if I really have been consistently working towards my goal. Do I need to up the cardio, cut a few more calories or see if certain days of the week (like weekends) have been trouble spots? It's all there for you!

Don't Wait

In the past, if I slipped up, I would say 'screw it' and just keep eating bad for the rest of the day. It would turn into the next day, then the next week. Now, I don't wait until the next day, I start with the next snack or meal. I feel good about, and the little slip up is a lesson learned.

Do not let weekends defeat you.

To get on track & stay on track this hint may help you.
During the week I make up snack packs & do some batch cooking. I package everything using portion control (weigh and/or measure) and put them in the fridge or freezer (depends what it is & what day I packaged it) I use them on the weekend.

Focus on the Positive

When you are having a pity party for yourself, try to refocus on all the positive things in your life to re-attune your attitude. Look at your accomplishments, all you are grateful for (it could be just because you woke up today sometimes! lol). "A joyful spirit is evidence of a grateful heart"

Acceptance

Allow myself to be as human as I allow others to be - everyone makes mistakes, no one is perfect. Acknowledge it, accept it, forgive it, learn from it and go on.

TRUTH

We really only get the present, moment by moment. Don't invest in the past.

Spend time on you

Feel, experience how nice it is to spend time on you. Let others pamper you or do it yourself with a long hot shower, a body scrub, facial scrub, facial mask, lots of bodylotion. You feel so renewed afterword that it gives you tons of energy and willpower to get back on track!
