Make a to-do list every day of everything you need to do (e.g. shopping, cooking, cleaning etc.). Try to be as detailed as possible to prevent cheating. Your day is not done until everything on your list is complete (if it's not done, then there has to be a really good reason and not "I'm too tired"). It's a great way to push through lethargy and organise your day (and feel proud of yourself for making it through the list). Don't forget to put your workout on your list.
Whenever I turn down a high calorie food instead of feeling deprived, I note it in my food diary and the calorie content of that food. On days where I very nearly don't go to the gym I note that down also. At the end of the week, I tot up how many extra calories I would have consumed/ not burned and take it away from my loss. Seeing the weight I would still be had I given into these impulses keeps me on the straight and narrow. Instead of feeling deprived, I feel empowered! :)
