I read a Team (This is Birdland: Baltimore Orioles Fans) member's blog this morning and a concept occurred to me that might be helpful to many of you. Here is my response to TIMS4FISHIN blog:

"After reading your blog this morning, I had a thought. It appears to me that people who take the time to plan-- really plan-- their workouts and fitness goals, do much better at their weight-loss journey. Like you, Tim, I plan ahead and I find that I look forward everyday to what I have written down to do.
I hadn't thought about that factor until I read your comments. Maybe this is an important factor in successfully continuing on our "health" journey.
Enjoy your day!

So, perhaps when we plan specific activities in advance, we are more likely to get excited about them and complete what we intended to do. I don't know about the rest of you, but I need all the motivation I can get for this journey

    I always feel so good after I finish my work out too. I try to plan for each day but sometimes it doesn't always go that way.

    That was really nice of you to post that. I appreciate it alot. And you are exactly right. I do plan my next move, kind of like "thinking ahead". Sometimes, plans change, but as long as I write down the structure of what I plan to do, I stay pretty close to those guidelines. And that gives me an idea of another blog that I can post.
    But knowing that tomorrow, I have to go workout at the gym, and knowing what I have planned once I get there, I get excited about it. I plan some fun during my workouts. Those that go to gyms or Y.M.C.A., if they have a sauna, or steambath, reward yourself after a good workout with some relax time in one of these rooms. There, you can think about what you are doing, reflect on what you can change from a set back, and plan ahead.

    That is so true. I've been off track for quite awhile now and it is simply because I haven't been planning meals, fitness, etc. I need structure!!
