3 Easy Ways to Get Back on Track When You Fall Off the Wagon

fitness goals nutrition Jul 24, 2018

Let's be really honest here - how often do you give yourself credit for accomplishing all of your fitness and nutrition goals?


OR - do you focus MORE on the times when you:


• slipped up and had ice cream 
• indulged in a slice of pizza (or 4) 
• skipped a workout in favor of Netflix
• couldn't make it to the gym on time because of "x, y or z"

And then (WORSE) beat yourself up for these common occurrences (which are totally normal, by the way) and feel - well.... kinda like a failure at meeting your wellness goals?

I GET IT! 

And you wanna know what?  Getting off track is PART OF THE PROCESS in achieving your goals.  It happens to the best of us! (Me included).   


Check out this short, sweet video where I give you my Top 3 Tips for Easily Getting Back on Track- and most importantly avoid feeling like a failure. 

The quick snapshot: 


1. Know your final destination and your 1st pit stop. 
What's your FINAL END-GOAL (AKA final destination)? Next, what's your 1st pit stop on your way to your end goal? EX: I want to lose 25 lbs. I know I'm well on my way when I've lost the first 5 lbs. 


2. Focus on weekly goals vs. daily goals. 
It's easy to slip up during the day and then feel like you're completely off track - HOWEVER - can you instead focus on your weekly total? All the daily things YOU DID DO that made up your week?  I promise this perspective feels so much more satisfying! 


3. One Small Thing in the AM or PM
As soon as you feel yourself getting off track, do ONE SMALL THING aligned with your goal in the evening before bed or first thing in the morning.  This will counteract any feelings of failure and keep you moving ahead toward your goal!  EX's: get your gym packed the night before, do 20 wall pushups while your coffee's brewing, do 5 minutes of quiet time or meditation before bed.
