I always try to do just a little more than before... in everything. Examples: I used to brush my teeth leaning on the counter. One day, I made a conscious decision to remain standing upright, the next day I started moving my feet while I brushed. When I'm working out on the treadmill, I try to stay at a higher speed/elevation longer than the last time, even if it's just 30 seconds longer. This way I can become more active in the little things I do and continue to push myself!
Any time I messed up when working towards a goal, it was too easy to quit. "Well, I already failed, one more soda won't make much difference." Now I remind myself, "Every day is day one." Had a soda yesterday? Today is day one. Today I can keep trying.
I love chocolate but I have a tendency to overindulge. So, to combat this I buy an extra large chocolate bar and break it into pieces. I put them all in a plastic bag and stick it in the freezer. When I crave chocolate I take out just one piece and because its frozen it takes longer to eat. This way I savor the taste.
