I think it's a matter of acknowledging that we're human and not perfect, and to not stop quitting. So when you do muck up - just get straight back on the wagon.
Having lots of small goals may be helpful. Your goal for the week might be to drink 2l of water every day. When you achieve it, even if it's not overly hard to achieve, you'll still get a sense of satisfaction that you've done it
I find lists help me to - tick things off each day... this is my list
* to do at least 30 mins a day of exercise (on non training days)
* to drink at least 2lts of water
* to have 1 serve fruit
* to have 2+ serves of veggies
* to have 1 serve of protien
* to have 1 serve of dairy
* no sweetie treats – healthy snacks only!
* no alcohol
* to say something nice to yourself or someone else
* to take my vitamins and supplements
I hardly ever do all of them, but at least I've got something to aim for. If I didn't have any goals, I'd be a lot worse off (and a lot fatter
Don't beat yourself up. You're here, you're making a fresh start. That's not the sort of thing a 'failure' does. A failure is someone who gives up entirely and you're not doing anything like that.
Hope this helps...
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
