Self Forgiveness

Once I got over the I have blown it attitude and realized this is a life style change it has all fallen into place. That is not to say that there is not lots of room for improvement, just that I can now accept what has happened and move ahead instead of down. Keep going everyone!

Give yourself permission to "fail"

I'm a recovering perfectionist who used to think it was better not to try than to try and fail. Now I know better. If I fail, it means I'm trying. As long as I keep trying, one more time than I fail, I'm not a failure!

Lose the "All or Nothing" Mentality

It's important to ease back into your healthy habits the same way SparkPeople started you slowly when you first came to the site. Try to focus on the things that are holding you back: if you are reluctant to commit to a full workout, try doing just 10 minutes a few times a day. emoticon

Increase your protein!

When I slip up, it's because I've been gradually adding more carbs back into my diet, which lead to more (bad) carb cravings. I start feeling out of control. When I increase my protein again, suddenly it doesn't take nearly as much effort to stay on track.

Fresh Start To Exercise

Some new flashy workout clothes puts me back in the mood to get to the gym for workout classes (or machines). Likewise, some new tunes for my MP3 makes me want to get out on the road for my jogs! A new route for my bike ride breaks up the boredom. Keep changing things up and make it fun!

Quit Waiting for the "Feeling"

I recently went through a funk, and didn't have the spark I'd started with 5 mos. ago. I thought this was a feeling that would return on it's own. THEN, I realized that determination is not a FEELING that comes over me, it's a DECISION! Once I consciously decided to just DO IT, well, here I am!

Blog everything - the good and the bad!

It is very easy to stop blogging when we aren't doing so well - but it is important to blog even when you're off track. Your Spark friends will support you, and you can look back on those blogs to see what you've pulled yourself out of before.
