Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
We make sacrifices every day that compromise our bodies and our minds. Putting my physical and mental well-being before taking care of everyone else has helped me greatly over the past few months. Learn to say NO!
When asthma kicks in and I can't exercise, making better food choices lets me stay on track. I don't rack up the points...but I still keep moving forward.
LOOKING IN THE MIRROR AND SEEING RESULTS STOPS ME FROM EATING EXTRA FOOD AT NIGHT.
Philippians 3:13 (KJV) Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. Always remember after every good & bad moment is a new 1. God allows us to make new choices every second.
Bad day? Blow your calories? No problem. You can push the reset button anytime. If I've gone off track, whether it's for a month or a meal, I literally stop, take a moment to breathe deeply, and imagine myself pushing a giant RESET button. The image lets me release what I've done and move forward.
Re evalutaing yourself and goals once in a while and not just going for a ride. Stop do a body/soul search and veer it back on course.
There's that old blurb.... 'if you bite - it write it!
Afraid of getting off track
It had been my tendency to hide when things were not going well and then feel isolated and alone. Now with the support of my SP teams, I reach out to others to help me get through the tough times. We all have rough patches, don't let guilt, shame or false pride get in the way of you health!!!
In general, my plan involves lots of cardio. There are just times in my life that I need to step back. I don't step out anymore - I just switch it up. Instead of running and biking, I choose walking and yoga. It seems to help renew my spirit when I'm really overwhelmed with *life* (deaths, etc).
