We've all had those times when we feel things just aren't going in the direction we want with our health goals.
That's OK. It's doesn't have to be forever.
You can stop and turn things around.
Star afresh. Each day gives us an awesome opportunity to start heading again in the direction we want to be with intent and a positive attitude.
What's the single most important thing to do to make some progress again?
I believe it's tracking. It allows us to be honest with ourselves about what and how much we are eating. It allows us to make changes with intent, and be mindful about what we are eating.
How to track is up to you. It can be in a notebook, on your computer, on your smart phone or tablet. Thre are lots of apps out there to help you track your eating and activity. I really like the My Fitness Pal app on my iPhone and that's how I track.
When I track my eating, I always feel like I'm following my health goals with more purpose and intent.
One final thing. Once you have got back on track, I find it really helpful to look back at what was happening when things got off track. Usually for me it's having too much going on all at once, feeling overwhelmed or stressed. That teaches me to be more mindful about my schedule and say no to more things. There are lessons to be learnt and baby steps to be made. Start today!
