When you stray from your goals the easiest way to get back on track is by planning.
I got kind of lost in all of the information out there about losing weight so I made a calendar on my phone that alerts me when it's time to eat, cook, workout etc. These times corrospond with appointments and my work schedule so I'm able to "make an appointment" to work out and only eat when my calendar tells me it's time to!
Setbacks in any fitness program are going to occur, when they do we often feel guilty and avoid the things we should be doing like exercise and logging into Spark. The avoidance pattern makes getting back on track all the more difficult. When you are having an off period, make sure you login to Spark everyday. Eventually the down period will pass and if you have stayed connected getting back on track will be easier!!!
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!
