Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
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.
After a lull in your motivation and you feel that burst of energy to get going on your goals again don't wait until Monday or tomorrow to start. Start right now!
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.
NOT MISSING ANY 24-HR FITNESS W/O'S IS WHAT IS WORKING 4 ME... I AM STUCK ON A PLATEOU 4 NOW.... BUT I AM LOSING A LOT OF INCHES; THIS GIVES ME THE STRENGTH 2 KEEP GOIN.....
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"
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.
We really only get the present, moment by moment. Don't invest in the past.
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!
Find someone who will hold you accountable on your healthy lifestyles journey. This person needs to be someone who can call you on the carpet when necessary in a way that is supportive and caring.
Set your goal, and then write the steps to meet it. Make sure to include short-term goals and reasonable periods for managing your plan--every two weeks, a week, or even 2 - 3 days. Review and see what was good and continue with it. And...forgive your breaking down and doing something unhealthy.
