Day 3 - Encouragement

Monday, March 04, 2013

Today's question is about what I'll do to encourage myself and to keep on track.

I've said that my goal is to exercise for at least 10 minutes each day. I intend to reach that goal by making no more excuses not to exercise, scheduling my workouts on my calendar, and "just doing it".

So, how will I encourage myself? I felt like I needed a few things.
1. Small rewards - I will give myself small rewards for accomplishing smaller goals. For example, if I can maintain my 20 days of exercise streak I will buy a new pair of exercise pants or sports bra.
2. I like to look on my SP page and see how long my "streak" is/has been going. I know that I'll feel disappointed if I miss a day and have to start the streak over again all b/c I couldn't dedicate 10 minutes of my day to doing some exercise.
3. I will envision what I will look and feel like when I reach my final weightloss goal. I'd like to feel comfortable in a bathing suit by summer but what does that mean?!? I'll envision what my new body would look like & realize that I can only achieve that goal by working toward it.
