Simply put: if you fall off the healthy wagon, get back on. Remember that it's a new yearâ€™s resolution; not a new monthâ€™s resolution, so donâ€™t give up after a few weeks of trying. Creating new habits and making unfamiliar changes is not easy for anyone, so don't think you are alone, and that you are going to make some mistakes along the way.
Itâ€™s also okay to indulge every so often, because if you donâ€™t, anger and frustration will seep in because you are depriving your self of things you love. It can be helpful to try some substitutes, such as a chocolate protein smoothie instead of the chocolate shake, dates instead of the candy, fruit juice instead of soda. You wonâ€™t even miss the more unhealthy options and your cravings for them will eventually subside.
