Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
Plan out and journal your food a day ahead of time. That way throughout the day you know where you stand in your calorie count. If you want to make substitutions or additions along the way you will know where you stand before getting to dinner and realizing you went over!
When I start losing focus, I can look at the Reports to see if I really have been consistently working towards my goal. Do I need to up the cardio, cut a few more calories or see if certain days of the week (like weekends) have been trouble spots? It's all there for you!
Sometimes, it isn't as easy to get back on track but its worth it.
In the past, if I slipped up, I would say 'screw it' and just keep eating bad for the rest of the day. It would turn into the next day, then the next week. Now, I don't wait until the next day, I start with the next snack or meal. I feel good about, and the little slip up is a lesson learned.
After a lull in your motivation and you feel that burst of energy to get going on your goals again don't wait until Monday or tomorrow to start. Start right now!
To get on track & stay on track this hint may help you.
During the week I make up snack packs & do some batch cooking. I package everything using portion control (weigh and/or measure) and put them in the fridge or freezer (depends what it is & what day I packaged it) I use them on the weekend.
NOT MISSING ANY 24-HR FITNESS W/O'S IS WHAT IS WORKING 4 ME... I AM STUCK ON A PLATEOU 4 NOW.... BUT I AM LOSING A LOT OF INCHES; THIS GIVES ME THE STRENGTH 2 KEEP GOIN.....
When you are having a pity party for yourself, try to refocus on all the positive things in your life to re-attune your attitude. Look at your accomplishments, all you are grateful for (it could be just because you woke up today sometimes! lol). "A joyful spirit is evidence of a grateful heart"
Allow myself to be as human as I allow others to be - everyone makes mistakes, no one is perfect. Acknowledge it, accept it, forgive it, learn from it and go on.
