Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
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.
I look at old pics of myself, this helps me see how far I have come, and keeps me from giving up
i been trying to lose weight . it has been very hard for me. but now my 3 year old son help me get back on track so i can see him grow up.
I don't know if this has already been posted, but I found that if I wear pants that were a bit loose before I went off track, and are now a bit tight, I wear them when I eat. I am reminded of my setback, and I feel full faster and eat less automatically.
I came up with every excuse possible... working too much, traveling too much, etc. No more excuses! If I can plan my menu the night before and pack a cooler, I am good to go! I can also work out anywhere when traveling. Many of the Anytime Fitness locations offer a $10 a day pass! JUST DO IT!
I've read it's about what you do MOST of the time, not ALL the time. It's okay to miss one day of exercise or eating healthy. Just bounce back to your routine the next day!
Instead of waiting til the following morning when I fall off the wagon....I start at the next meal, eating a well balanced one.
I do things for everyone else in my life at the expense of my health. Now - I work my priorities around me (fitness, nutrition and sleep) - because that is what everyone else in my life (who truly cares about me) wants as well - a healthy, balanced, active ME!
