Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
WELL THAT IS A DIIFERNT ONE FOR EVERYBODY. I LIKE THE ONE IN THE SPARK BOOK.
SET UP SURPRISES FOR YOURSELF SAY WHEN YOU REACH 5 POUNDS GONE YOU GET A PRISE FROM A BOX EITHER YOU OR A FRIEND THAT KNOWS YOU GIVE HER MONEY TO BUT SEVERAL GIFT YOU WOULD LIKE EITHER WRAP THEM UP OR PUT ON A PIECE OF
Reach out to your Spark Friend's when you need to.Always remember there is someone around to not only share in your accomplishments but a shoulder to lean on when you need one
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.
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.
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.
We all slip once in a while, and we all make mistakes, but the key is how do we get back on the track. We forgive our self, and realize that we can continue when we really want to reach our goal,
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!
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.
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.
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!!
