Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
Sometimes when I have a bad eating day, it's tempting to just not log it. Why bother? I know that I went over my goals! But I have found that logging the bad stuff helps me to get it off my chest, and then I can move forward and get back on that wagon that much quicker.
I am an ICE CREAM JUNKIE. Edy's now sells the single serve ice cream containers. Flavors like Reese peanut butter cup - you know exactly how many calories and visually, when its empty - its empty! I save my calories for my special treat - I love it!!
After I have had a slip up no matter what time of day it is, I will write it down and for the rest of the day will make a few changes on what I will eat for the rest of the day execpt for if I did it after dinner.
When I track all to foods eaten daily, I feel great accomplishment and satisfaction
Everyone has bad days, EVERYONE. Don't beat yourself up if you have a day or week when you indulge too much. Just find your motivation again and get back on track. Use your food tracker, weigh everyday and celebrate all your accomplishments big or small!
I have really honed in on my difficulty in losing weight and that is my night time eating. So for over a week now, I have allotted myself 200 calories or less for my after dinner/before bedtime eating. (Ex. a light fat free yogurt, piece of fruit) or planning something less than 200 calories.
When I need to get on track, I can't look back. I have to focus on where I want to be and not where I am coming from!
If you have a day when you've overeaten,don't beat yourself up-make it your goal to reflect on why you overate so you won't do it again
There will never be enough chocolate or doritos or pizza or whatever your comfort food of choice is to fix what is hurting you. Once you realize that food is never the answer to your problems, you are one step closer to achieving your weight loss goal.
Start a list of thinks you are more p.owerful than. You have been derailed and need to get back on track. What are you more powerful than? I am more powerful than banana cream pie. Post this ongoing list
