Heed especially the part about putting the exercise bike in front of the TV, or any other exercise equipment you have. DO NOT put exercise equipment in a "spare room", garage, basement, or a room seldom used. Place it front and center where you spend the most time, and for many people, it's the darned tv. Don't pay attention to visitors who don't like it there, they don't live with you!!
What a fabulous way to true inspiration and experiencing success in our daily efforts to succeed. I was very happy to see the suggestion that we reward success, but don't punish failure. This is a keeper.
When I lose my way on my journey for better health, I always look for articles written by Dean. His "common sense-no nonsense" way of speaking always sees me thru the most difficult of times! Thanks Dean!!
Dean, I love what you have shared with us here. It all makes so much sense, and is all very helpful. Thank you for helping me...I am going to try my best! I have added most to my favorites, and will use them to go back to often!
Coach Dean - thank you for this EMPOWERING series of articles in "Mind Over Body." You've addressed a lot of issues honestly and directly while giving concrete, effective tools with which to overcome them. The incredible power of the mind is underestimated - it can help us achieve so much if we just believe that we CAN achieve and use it to bolster our efforts.
In my own weightloss journey, I used many of these techniques. Especially in the beginning, they were the only things that kept me going! These strategies really work and I still use them to maintain the lifestyle that I have achieved.
