baby steps

When I find myself off track on exercise I will start small. Maybe a 15 minute walk and build from there. Eventually the 15 minute walk turns into two 15 minute walks then to getting up in the morning to hit the gym.

Be Proactive

Get ready for tomorrow's plan, today. Get a plan for tomorrow's exercise, tomorrow's food, tomorrow's H20; get a strategy; get a daily routine and a weekly routine. Reboot as needed. You may not get all you planned to do done today, but you'll still get more done than if you hadn't planned at all.

Starting over



I have learned that starting over is NOT a bad thing. If you screw up, there is always tomorrow to begin again. if at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

When you screw up...

Don't be too hard on yourself if you screw up for a day or two (or more!). If you eat too much and/or and don't exercise, don't be too hard on yourself and don't let it set you back! Just keep plowing forward, forgive yourself, and remember tomorrow is always a new day!

Kick in the backside

Humans were created in a way so it is not easy to pat ourselves on the back or kick ourselves. But sometimes a good kick in the backside is what I need to get going. It is always received better if I get to do my own kicking.

Baby Steps keep you motivated!

When I came back to Sparkpeople last fall, I couldn't wrap my head around all the tracking of food, fitness, goals, weight...it was just too much. I started with food and then eventually I started tracking fitness. As progress and numbers wracked up, the more I wanted to use Spark and participate.

Eat like a skinny person

Realize that the difference between a thin person and a person with weight problems is that the skinny person doesn't beat herself up after eating off track. When eating chocolate or pizza or other, enjoy it. Don't guilt yourself into a binge. Skinny people often eat chocolate!!
