Keeping Track


Here's the thing - every week (heck every day) brings new challenges and stresses. You can acknowledge these things as a stumbling block - forcing you back away from your goal by several paces, or you can view them as a challenge, something you can win against! One of the best ways to keep positive in the fight is to keep track of everything. Write out what you eat each day, the stresses, how you feel, what you did for a workout, etc. When you see you aren't progressing toward your goal you should be able to go back to the book and see where you might have started going off track.

Let's also face it - having to write down the fact that you ate an entire plate of brownies is utterly depressing, so writing everything down can help you curb those cravings and unhealthy impulses.
