In my OMAT team, we pick one reasonable and reachable goal for each month and work on that small goal for a whole month. By the time the month is done, you've now broken an old habit and created a new one! I've been doing this since September 2013 and it's the one thing that helped me finally budge the scale!
Just STOP the thought train that creates "reasons" (excuses) and debates whether or not you should exercise or eat right. When I hear myself debating and rationalizing, I call myself out on it. "Heyyyyyy.........wait a minute........" Once I realize where that train is headed, I jump right off and get back on the right track. Listen to yourself and quit thinking! ;-)
Yup, Spark Coaches are free and easy!! I did the 2 week trial and the structure really keeps me moving. Now, I'm in my first 3 months for only $5 per month. Instead of flailing around on the site attempting to provide my own structure (but really just treading water), I now log into Spark Coach and it walks me through a good solid structure every day. Try it! Nothing to lose with the free trial (and you don't enter any payment info during the trial). Go for it!! :-)
DSD = Do Something Different!!
Think you failed? WRONG!!! Every approach you try teaches you something whether you realize it or not. Think about it. You take something good away from everything you've tried, so NEVER EVER EVER quit trying!!!
Well, I am just coming out of a "two steps backwards" phase and I am now getting back on track. How do I get back on track? I log in to SparkPeople and go to my points page. Then, I try to earn as many points as possible and before you know it, I'm feeling motivated, educated and encouraged! Try it yourself!! It's fun and it works!
