Getting back on the wagon...

I love Jillian from the Biggest Loser. I get her daily insights, and I should really read them more often! Here is what she said today:

Getting Back on the Wagon
It happens — you miss a few workouts and you feel like your weight-loss plan is totally derailed. It's tempting to mentally slap yourself around, right? Before you start, I want you to remind yourself of something. Being hard on yourself is the Old You.

The New You knows how to deal with setbacks and get back on the wagon. And after all, there are no mistakes, just learning experiences. Weight loss is a process — it takes time. You will encounter small failures — everyone does — but every pound you gain can be lost.

And if you miss a workout, it's not the end of the world! Get to the gym the next day and continue to focus on your short-term goals. Just because you made bad choices today doesn't mean you can't start over tomorrow. New day? New beginning. And don't you forget it.

Great advice, I really love it! I think that is where I get hung up most of the time- I want it off now, and I get really impatient. I am an all or nothing gal, if I have a bad day, I have a really bad day, if I have a great day, I am amazing!!!

If you've got some amazing tips, please share!

Nice thing about wagons, they move slowly so you can always catch up and climb back on.

Your awesome!
