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 Judge Yourself - Just Move Forward

When you have eaten more than your recommended calories or skipped a workout or ate that full bag of chips, don't beat yourself up! Still be sure to track whatever you ate, but move on. Everyone slips. Everyone! Keep your overall goals in mind (go over them after the slip-up) and look forward to the next day. No matter how many times you "fall", you can always get back up and still be successful.

Keep going never say I am starting over

“The key to succeeding at anything in life is to focus on the small victories.” ~ Mark Black ~ just pick your self up and go forward why waste time going back look how far you came before you slipped. when hiking a hiker doesn't turn around and go back to when he started the hike. emoticon emoticon 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.

Doing something different

Bad habits were creeping back...Grazing, adding on, snacking at night etc. I needed a change and something simple to replace my complicated food tracking.
So I printed menus for a week on the food tracker, check off eaten food, and substitute as needed.. Now I have renewed energy because I made a change to give myself more time.. The plan makes me feel safe knowing that the food plan is there for the entire week. emoticon

Plan, Plan, Plan

When you stray from your goals the easiest way to get back on track is by planning.
Plan to Succeed!
Plan your food for the day
Plan time to exercise.. Even if you only have 10 minutes
Plan to surround yourself with supportive people
Giving yourself positive feedback should be part of your plan
This is a journey and you will have success if you follow your plan. Cheers!

Failure doesn't mean you are a failure... it just means you haven't succeeded yet.

Remember you are never a failure unless you stop trying because "failure" is merely a temporary experience so u can learn from it toward success. emoticon
