Motivation 101

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Have you ever wondered how you are going to get to your goal? Whether it is a weight goal, an academic goal, an economic goal, or a life always requires motivation.

Oh, there will be times when you aren't able to stick to your plans and set-backs will happen, but keeping motivated is the real challenge.

There are so many ways SP helps us stay focused:

~ Motivational articles that teach and inspire

~ Personal stories that show us how success looks and feels

~ Tools that we use to track our nutrition, fitness, weight and other goals, both big and small.

~ Ways to meet and stay in contact with inspiring friends that make us laugh, think, resolve to work harder, and encourage us every day.

~ Challenges that help us focus on short range goals to help us on our way.

~ Workout and fitness videos to help us burn those calories in a hundred+ different ways.

~ Coaches that care, inspire, and teach us healthy ways to reach our goals

~ Quotations that distill just the right inspirational ideas to "spark" you for another day!

~ and many, many other ways to help us reach our goals.

These are just a few of the wonderful ways SparkPeople motivates me each and every day! So Motivation 101 consists of using SP to its fullest as often as you can with all the energy you can spare.

Thank you, SP!

    Absolutely!!!!! Couldn't agree more! I've been on this weight loss journey more times than I'd like to admit. I discovered SP on my previous journey and had great success. Five years later - back on the wagon - and I knew that meant back to SP! This site and the people who are a part of the site - well, the support and motivation is immeasurable!

It's all here! But only WE can choose to use it!
