Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
keeping track of my exercise and food helps me keep on track
Before I leave in the morning I put my gym bag in my car that way when I get off of work I can go straight there. If you dont put it in the car you won't go.
Tracking my calories has been my lifesaver. When I get lax, my mind seems to think...ok....it's not all that important...then I slip back into old habits. And my treat... planning for enough calories left over to have my 2 dark chocolate dove squares every evening. Makes my day!!
When I fall off my diet, I ask God for strength to help me get back on track. He always helps!
Having a partner has been my saving grace. She has helped me get back on track more than once. Take it small it you have to but do something positive for yourself.
Forgive yourself when you get off track. Say the same encouraging words to yourself that you would say to a friend who asked for your help and advice. Be your own best friend!
If you stray from your eating plan for one meal, just promise yourself you'll eat well for the next four. That way, you're always eating right 80% of the time.
Today I'm going to the track to walk it out, sweat it off, and tone it up!
Take a deep breath, pull yourself back up, look at how you got off track. Make a plan and write it down, then start over as many times as it takes. Don't beat yourself up over what happened.
