Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
This not a race but a journey, our path is narrow. If we fall down we brush ourselves off and get back on our path and keep on going. Your can do it.
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.
Always remember: Every day is a new day with no mistakes in it.
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.
You can do anything if you have faith! Believe it!
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.
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!
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!
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.
