Don't let one slip up ruin your day

If you eat something unplanned, if you eat too much, if you eat something decadent--tell yourself. From this moment on I am back on my program. The next thing I put in my mouth will be healthy and planned. I'm back on my plan with my next snack or meal.
Don't let one slip up derail you.You're building habits to last a lifetime. Don't throw in the towel today and figure the whole day is shot. The day is not shot! Start again now, don't wait for tomorrow or Monday to get back on your program.

My Own Little Science Experiment

As a new member of sparkpeople, I have decided to treat this experience like my own little science experiment. In a way, losing weight is like a science experiment, right? Your keeping track of your food intake, calories in. Your measuring food, reading labels, etc. Your exercising and counting calories burned. Your measuring your weight, you take measurements of your waistline. You do all these things to see if you have a result, weightloss! I hope you all win 1st prize at the science fair!

Be Thankful

Count your Blessing everyday. There's someone out there less fortunate than you

Encourage others, encourage yourself!

I find that the more I encourage others, the more I encourage myself. Commenting on someone's blog, responding to a message (especially the "Panic Button" messages), or just leaving a note on someone's SparkPage along with a SparkGoodie -- these positive actions lift me up as I try to lift up others.

This is for you not anyone else

Don't listen to what other people think. This is for you and you alone. Everyone thinks they know what you are or aren't doing. Be polite but stay focused on your own goals not what others believe your goals should be.

Don't compare yourself to other people

Don't get bogged down in how much everyone around you is doing. If you walked half a mile yesterday, and three-quarters of a mile today, that is awesome! Who cares if your friends are walking two miles a day; you are going at your own pace, and you are doing great! Just concentrate on improving YOURSELF a little at a time and don't worry about anyone else! emoticon

Go to BED

When I'm tired, I can get downcast very easily! Last night was one of those times. I thought about how I felt this morning, and decided INSTEAD of dwelling on how I'm feeling, JUST GO TO BED and in the morning I'll feel so differently. Seems simple enough! :-) And it worked! I got 8 1/2 hours of sleep and feel much better this morning.

Life

Laugh when you can...
Apologize when you should...
Let go of what you can't change...
Love deeply and forgive quickly...
Take chances and give your everything...
Life is too short to be anything but happy...
You have to take the good with the bad...
Love what you have...
Always remember what you had...
Forgive... but don't forget...
And always remember that life goes on.
