To be perfectly honest, when I want to stay motivated I look at myself in the mirror or jump on the scale. I dont feel very good about how I look so when I want to talk myself out of exercising or eating right I just remind myself that I want change.

Well this time around for Sparks, I'm learning just logging in everyday can keep me going I may not always get my exercise in but I'm aware when I log in how many times I actually missed- I can't tell you how many times I thought I missed three days while really I only messed one (haven't realized that I get confused on what day it is).

So I guess my tip is log in everyday even when you don't want to track anything, because after awhile you might get in the spirit again- especially if you get active in the Spark community.

Make myself healthier, so my jean size number is smaller then my age. (which I've almost accomplished- I wish there was a size 19 in womens)

Do you have any tips for staying motivated?

When I don't feel like working out, I make myself get dressed, from head to toe, laces tied and everything.

If after all that, I still don't feel like working out, then I give myself the OK to change out of my workout clothes.

But majority of the time, I'll do *something*. Whether that's a brisk walk around the block or a few jumping jacks/push ups/ crunches combo- it's something!

And that something is better than the nothing I wanted to do emoticon

How do you stay motivated?
