Slip-ups are inevitable. What is the best way to get on track when things do not go according to plan?
I had diet therapy and he always said 10 days. Go strict for 10 days to see how your body feels. When I would be tempted to cheat, I would say I could have it after the 10 days. It was long enough to build a good habit, and let me know my body feels better eating healthy (more energy, less pain)
This is not a "diet". Having an off snack, meal, day? Having a few days when you don't work out? That is life. Stuff happens, life happens. The trick is get back to your healthy living ASAP! Try to make the very next choice a healthy one. It is the overall pattern that makes a healthy lifestyle!
Getting on the scale motivates me for the day !
I think about all of the clothes I have sitting in my closet, just waiting for me to fit into them again! I'll pull out a few of my favorite peices and leave them hanging at the front of my closet so I see them every day!
When you fall off track get back on by being active for at least 30 minutes a day. Take a bike ride or walk away the pounds. If you feel up to a challenge do some Turbo Jam. Stay motivated and focused on your end goal
You never drown by simply falling overboard in the water. You drown when you stay there. Life will always be filled with mishaps & bad choices, but stop immediately, admit the error, look back at how far you've come & climb back in the boat. We can't do it over, but we can do it right the next time.
You won't get very far if you are not honest with yourself. Things may go your way for awhile, but you will not fully achieve your goals if you don't own up to how you got yourself where you are today.
As a single mom, most of our attention is on our kids...and it shows. We feel it too and to be the best mom we can, we have to be at the top of our game. Most of us have lost our beauty, exercise and self love routines over time, but in order to love, we must love ourselves.
The tough get going! I know, I know...you feel like you've been wading through the water forever but you know what? You've made some progress so you can't give up now. Re-evaluate your goals and ambitions and lay out a plan to get there.
