My motivation is not only for myself, but for my family as well. Especially my parents! They both have cancer and have TERRIBLE diets. I want them to see what I'm doing and my results. Hopefully they will jump on with me! The new products I found are helping too!
Loved this article. I try to use positive self-talk in most areas of my life. Thanks for the suggestion of visualization. My daughter is an athlete and I do this with her before her competitions. I never thought of using for myself.

I can definitely agree with positive self-talk. When I am running and I feel exhausted, if I let the fatigue make me stop, then I feel weak but when I start pep-talking myself into finishing my run, then I always find it to finish!
I recently found out that when I get tired during a workout, I just keep telling myself, it's just a feeling, I have to push myself instead of needing that easy break... that which I can push through until its over. If I always gave in, I sure wouldnt be making progress.
Loved this artical! My mantra is usually a song. Right now I'm singing "With a smile & a song, life is just like a bright sunny day, your cares fade away......" It helps when I'm not remembering who & what I am! *~LIGHT
