You Can't Fix It All At Once

As I work towards getting better in all areas of my life, I am one of those people who wants to do it all at once. However, I have learned that I have to build these habits a piece at a time if they are going to be lifelong habits rather than a quick fix.

Be Positive

If you constantly put yourself down with negative self talk, you will start believing it and the cycle never ends. Try saying to yourself "I am beautiful, I am extraordinary and there is no one like me in the world" and erase the old tape in your brain.

Affirm That It Is a Journey

I've finally realized that I'm on a journey - and I keep telling myself that. Life is all around: parties, dinners out. Getting off track is part of life's journey; I've accepted it. By affirming that to myself I'm better able to cope when I go a little off and I don't beat myself up.

Preparing for the battle

Prepare for the battle the night before! Make your plans: Starting early with lots of water, what kinds of things you will eat the next day, and even more important, what you will eat in SMALL PORTIONS when you get too hungry. You can do it!

Do it TODAY

When you fall out of routine for whatever reason, the best time to get back into it is NOW. Don't put off what you've already been putting off. Force yourself to get on that treadmill or push play on the DVD. Your body and mind will thank you for it later!

Get More Sleep

I tend to lose control when I'm tired. If I go to bed at a consistent time allowing for 7-8 hours of sleep, I am able to make better food and exercise choices.
