    Habit. Once you're in the habit of doing the right things, you just do them, even when you are having a hard day.

    Pre logging my workouts. It's forcing me to be accountable to myself. Also pre logging my meals, so I know exactly what I can eat later. Also was very shocked when I stood on the scale for the first time since restarting this again.(I am 17 days into it this time) I didn't want to admit how much I had fallen off the rails. The funny thing is, I don't feel badly about my weight gain. I have the exercise part in place, always have. For instance, I ran up the stairs from the basement to the third floor in my building and wasn't outta breath. It's my eating habits that have gotten back outta hand again. Oh well, ce la vie and I know, I got this. It's just gonna take time. And I know this works because I used myfitnesspal years ago and kicked all this weight to the curb. Kerb if you are British.....hehehehe

    i ordered pizza and decided (really a friend told me about this) to take the toppings off and put it on my 50 calorie low carb 4g flatbread. Great way to eat pizza.

    Transitioning from mostly going on fasted runs to making sure I eat a little bit of each macro about an hour before running. I might not be as "fat adapted" (quelle horreur!) but I'm less hungry later in the day. Also, moved my protein into smaller portions, eaten intermittently throughout the day, instead of at 3 big meals. That makes me less hungry too.

    Knowing that I am retaining water if I have sore muscles. I just smiled and shook my head at the number on the scale instead of freaking out, and spent the day moving and eating in budget and making sure I drink all my water. As the soreness leaves, so will the water.
