Avoid Slipping from Goals

Sometimes it can just seems to happen out of nowhere. You are doing so well, and then all of a sudden you have totally fallen off track. I know. I have been there. I am there now. I have been so mad at myself this past week for making choices that I did not want to make or that were not part of my plan. It happens, I get that. But, I think it is important to have a plan in order to try and avoid these slip-ups if at all possible.

Let me give you some suggestions that I will be trying out today and the next week. I asked my challengers to help come up with some ideas, so I am including them in here too because they really had some good ones.

  1. Leave the situation. {Go for a walk, play with your kids/grandkids}
  2. Distract yourself by calling a friend.
  3. Work on a favorite hobby.
  4. Drink some water.
  5. Chew gum
  6. Sit by the campfire.
  7. Read a book or magazine.
  8. Tell yourself a slip-up doesn't have to be a major setback.
What about you? What do you do or what ideas do you have? Would definitely love to hear to add to my list.


  1. Clean/organize a part of the house you have been wanting to do or listen to music and dance like crazy :) (I do this with my girls so it doesn't look too weird)

    1. Great ideas! And, yes, when dancing wild and crazy... it's totally acceptable when kids are around. ;)
