Don't Wait for Tomorrow: Start Today

When you put off diet change, exercise, etc till tomorrow you will find that tomorrow never comes. You forget, find an excuse, or just loose motivation. Start today; even if it's drinking an extra glass of water of going for a short walk after a meal; you'll thank yourself tomorrow.

Just do it!

Don't plan to start next Monday, or the first of the year. JUST DO IT!!! I planned to start my fitness/wellness journey so many times and experienced setbacks. Plan your meals for the next day and stay on track.
Made some bad choices on last night's meal? Don't discourage but encourage yourself! Recognize the behavior and change it.

Never Give Up

If I get off track, I do not berate myself. As soon as I can, I get back on track. Broken ankle - gained weight, choice is to give up - NO! Start again. Losing family members to cancer...do not give in....keep going....give myself as much grace as I would give a friend ..start again. I am not a quitter emoticon

Don't beat yourself up

I take a warm shower + drink lots of water + journal about the experience. The next day I eat normally and continue to hydrate.

Everyone will fall. It is important to forgive yourself, and get back to moving forward ASAP!

Keep Moving Forward

I don't allow myself to dwell on the past, instead I remain positive by working out, eating right and moving forward. emoticon

Slowly move forward, never move backward

Do you feel overwhelmed by the challenges ahead for getting fit and healthy? The secret is to start with the tiniest improvement and then slowly, steadily add to it, never moving backwards. For example, the first day do just one sit up. Day two add another. Every day add one, never subtract! - and soon you'll be doing a full routine. Same with food: Day one: Eat half a bagel, instead of a full bagel. The next day, eat a quarter bagel, day three, no bagel. Slow and steady wins the race! emoticon
