Don't throw the day away

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.

Get An Accountibility Buddy

For those of us who need extra help getting and staying on track, find an accountability buddy. Find someone you trust and have them make sure you follow through with fitness and weight loss goals and commitments. I chose a trainer, but if you can find a SparkPeople buddy in your area, do it!

Dance out of the rut

When you're in a mental rut, put on music ... stand up and move to it while you try to think things through. Before you know it you'll be dancing & happy & active again.

Take a break

We all need to really rest from time to time. Sometimes I rest my program. It's different than giving up or throwing it away. I'm just taking care of myself so as not to get upset and quit something I really want to do. So rest a while and then come on back.

Empty your head

Try to empty your head.
Refill your batteries and start fresh.
Disconnecting for a moment helps to make you aware of what you really have to do.
