Hi, just saw yourcomment on the SparkBlog http://www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog.asp?p ost=7_tests_you_should_never_skip
LDBEAMS - because at the bottom of the 3 points listed in the blog, there's a link to "Click here for more ways to stay healthy from Family Circle." and that link will show all seven tests as listed in the original article from Family Circle. (more marketing and $$$ for SparkPeople, as that is no doubt a click-thru that links it back to SparkPeople as the referral link. 1240 days ago
Thank you for the SparkGoodie! I did not see it until now. I have been having trouble with the internet and being able to post/blog etc. I went to the cable company and complained. I learned that my modem style was outdated by 6 years!
To answer your question.. Yes..I am on a 'deadline' ! I have learned that Goals can be reached much faster if they have a 'focus point' or..a deadline! This way I can stay more focused because I need to work on that Goal daily! I do the same in my business as well as in all of my endeavors!
My 'Secret' to staying Motivated is this...(and promise me you won't tell anyone else..Okay?)
L I F E ! ! ! I enjoy Life! As such . .Life is much better when my body is at its best . . and I am responsible for that! Whatever that 'best' is. . I am limited as to what I can do . . I am not an Olympic runner . .and I know I never will be . . yet I will do the best I can at what I can!
"Motivation (your motive or your reason WHY you start) will get you going . . Habit will keep you going!" Then your habit s keep you motivated and motivation will create habits..Perpetual motion at its best!
