Practice “positive self talk”. Whether your fitness goal is to lose weight, lower your cholesterol, or improve your athletic performance, we all need to get back on track, if our progress is interrupted.
If you have a piece of cake and your goal is weight loss, you are not a bad person because you made a poor food choice or gave yourself permission to deviate. Don’t beat yourself up with words like, “I blew it” or “I cheated on my diet”. All you can do is get back on track as soon as possible Guilt is not a vehicle towards success. Be kind to yourself.
