Visual Motivators

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

I've got to say...i love the visual motivators at work. I put up pictures of skinny girls in my office...and everyone keeps asking me what it's all about. And I explain to them about spark people and that it will keep me from going to the vending machine. I even have a picture in my change drawer (where i would go to get the money for the vending machine). It's quite a sneaky trick...but it's working! now i just have to get a picture of my head on one of those bodies!!! emoticon

    Awesome! I keep a picture of a skinny model in the wedding dress I will buy later this year in my phone so I can look at it whenever I need motivation or to avoid temptation.
And you will be the head on that body!

why do I keep forgetting how great I feel after a good workout. Or even before then when I'm walking from my car in the parking lot into the gym with all the other people that get their butts up early on a saturday morning. I haven't exercised for about a week and I NEED TO GET MY BUTT INTO GEAR!!! emoticon yesterday i made a collage that represented my motivators filled with pictures of organized shelves, running shoes emoticon, cooking etc... and what did i do yesterday? lounge around the house and did.... NOTHING emoticon. Time to get with it! My community Center Gym opens at 7 today...and I will be the first person there. emoticon

    Sounds like my Saturday (without making the collage). I'll go get my runners on and go outside. sigh.

Thanks for the reminder!

    i tend to have the same problem....i find that if i miss one day of exercise its even harder for me to get my butt in gear the next just gotta push through it and think of how proud you'll be when you finish your workout! emoticon

Oh the beginning

Friday, March 12, 2010 I've got some of my before pics that I want to put up on my page. We recently had an 80's night at church and lemme tell you, there's nothing that reveals the stuff your trying to lose more than 80's clothes. I'm so glad I'm on SparkPeople and on my way to slim because those pics are mighty depressing. Soon to come for you viewing pleasure and probably for my before pic. Maybe I'll keep those same clothes and wear them for my after pics! Anyway..yesterday the office brought in free pizza emoticon, and it wasn't that generic dominoes stuff, it was a gourmet local pizzeria. And i had the willpower to say NO! I felt really good and rewarded myself with a trip to the mall with my hubby and a visit to Jamba juice. I'm sure I'll reap the benifits of turning down the pizza later on when my pants get looser!
