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
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.
“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.
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.
When you stray from your goals the easiest way to get back on track is by planning.
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.
