Above all, be kind...

Forgive yourself for slip-ups and use that positive self-talk! Remind yourself of what's important about your goals and be your own best cheerleader (remember, cheerleaders don't lie down on the field and cry when their team is behind, they tell everyone to FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT!!!)

Make a GRATITUDE LIST

The more I'm thankful for the better I fell and the more I want to stick to my goals -- it's not the speed you know, it's the direction (saw this on a sign outside of a church and loved it's simplicity and truth)

Eat breakfast

Make sure you eat a complete breakfast so that you are not tempted to eat more inbetween meals. I like to have a bowl of oatmeal, nuts and fruit- that does the trick for me.

spark points

I find that if I work on accumulating spark points it helps me to stay on track. I read articles, play trivia games, read blogs, do whatever I can to get lots of points through out the day. This helps me to feel connected. Thanks you Spark!

Reflection

When I find myself down or missing my goals I go to the one ultimate resource that has all of the answers. This one resource has the ability to set things right and get me back on track. In the end this resource is ultimately responsible for my destiny. I look in the mirror.

Make appointments with yourself for execise

Whether I have got way off track or suddenly realised I just let a few weeks of no focused fitness activity pass, I find that I need to check my calender and block out specific time with specific goals to aim for.
