Daily Coaching Motivation Day 30

Monday, February 25, 2013

visualize yourself in your favorite place in the world - Jake's beach in Del Mar, CA. Breathe deeply and take in all the positive energy from that place to carry with you today. Salt air in the lungs, sand under foot. Feeling full of energy to walk for miles.

How can you use some of that good energy to help you reach your goals?

    I also "took home cake" for hubby at the shower on Sunday; I didn't have any - said I'd eaten to much already. Worked perfectly!

    Hubby is infinately better at not offering me dessert with him. He found it awkward at first but has gotten used to it - I explained that it is hard for me to say no but I wouldn't be offended by his eating without me.

Imagine looking at your reflection on the day you reach your goal weight. How does it make you feel? Spend 30 seconds reveling in that feeling—and then go out and conquer your goals to make it a reality!

Daily Motivation Day 28

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Imagine that you're out to dinner and you order one of the healthiest options on the menu instead of your usual order. How does it make you feel to have made the healthier choice?

I often do. My issues is not as much what I eat, but rather how much!

Daily Motivation Day 27

Friday, February 22, 2013

Imagine holding the amount of weight you want to lose as dumbbells in your hands. Then, visualize yourself walking, dropping the weights little by little and eventually running--completely free of the added weights.

the weight isn't a burden to me, it's a frustration. It's not fitting into clothes, feeling embarrassed to be naked in front of my husband, but more than that, it's the activity level - having to reduce the weights in class because it's just too heavy, or not being able to do that last rep. There's fear of sudden pain in my back or knee - that's what holds me back.

daily Motivation Day 26

Thursday, February 21, 2013

visualize yourself completing a workout that you previously couldn't accomplish. How does it feel to know that you gave it your all--and actually finished it?

That's a 10km run/walk and I look forward to doing squats and lunges pain free again.

    Where could motivation be waiting for you in your life? Where can you go to find it when you need it? Start to develop a daily routine where you actively seek out inspiring stories and events that make you feel like you can reach your goals.

I need to get back to my joy journal, but all these things: meal planning, looking for inspiration, working out - they take up SO MUCH TIME! How do you manage that and a family and a FT job?

Here's one for today:
Eat well. Move daily. Hydrate Often. Sleep lots. Love your body. Repeat for life :)
