Treadmill secret

Pushing your heart rate on the treadmill doesn't have to mean changing speeds or inclines. A simple way to push your heart rate is to change the length of your stride. Taking very long, powerful strides that engage your glutes, while pumping your arms, can really get that heart pumping!!

Display my "skinny" photos

I was thin once and at various times so I have those photos to remind me I was there once, I can get there again! I may not look like I did when I was 20, but those images tell me I can get close! emoticon

Look at everything in a positive way!

No matter what happens it is important for me to look at things in a different and positive way. The old "if life gives you lemons, make lemonade" attitude. If I gain weight, the gain is motivation to put in extra workout or be creative with my meals.

Practice makes perfect.

Practice regularly what you'd like to be good at.
If you want to get better at running, you run…..at biking, you bike…….at a sport, you play that sport.

Trick yourself into exercising

I am gullible and sometimes immature when it comes to telling myself I have to do things. So I made a rule: when it is time to exercise I have to put on my workout shoes. When I say "I don't want to" I start the self talk. "You know the rule!" "But I'm not going to exercise" I grumble....
