Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
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!
After a slip up, I forgive myself. I allow myself the right to enjoy the food I ate at that time, let it go, and move on with my life.
i put my tennis shoes on; get my keys, grab my mp3 player and go for a walk! helps me to appreciate the outdoors; i feel better when i get back whether its only 20,25 ,30 or 55 minutes!
When you are sick, and too weak to exercise, don't let that get you off track. Journalise your food, and post on the message boards. Earn as many Sparks points as you can. Then you will stay motivated, and be ready to go back to your normal schedule when you get well.
I had a really stressful week last week, I didnt eat as good as I should have but I didnt eat as bad as I use to. I was still somewhat mindful. I did execise even though it felt like torture. Usually it makes me feel better
I used to have a slip-up in the morning and throw the rest of the day away, until someone told me "if you drop an egg, do you throw the rest of the dozen on the floor? No, you make the most of what you have left!" That has stuck with me for years.
