Celebrate Recovery

CR has opened my eyes, mind and heart. Having a family of people in similar situations to my own not only makes us all able to relate to one another but accountable for one another as well. And receiving milestone chips is tangible reinforcement that with each new moment, I am making healthy choices for my body and soul!

Keep It Simple

Staying motivated for me means lightening up in as many areas of my life as I can. If I take it all too seriously, most especially myself, I become overwhelmed and my resolve to lose weight falls away. And laughter is a life saver. emoticon

Resentment transformed into motivation

In my previous job, I was in a physical and motivational rut. With high responsibility and supervisory duties, I felt trapped at my desk, not even taking lunch. I resented how others seemed to leave so easily, especially the smokers who would go for their breaks. I realized that resentment only hurt me inside. I chose to start a "stair break" for 5 minutes to take the 5-level flight of stairs once. I struggled but eventually built up to taking them 5 times in 10 minutes, and felt like a winner!

Inspiration Collage

I made a collage of encouraging quotes and photos of places I have been active in the past - kayaking and backpacking. It also includes photos of places I want to hike, canoe, and wildlife I want to see. Currently, there are 8 quotes and 25 photos taped to my closet doors. I have added pictures to my profile to give you an idea of the layout.

80's music for the workout

I always listen to 80's music when working out, it's usually upbeat and high energy, then you get the random "cool down" song thrown in. Keeps me going. 80's is definitively the only decade with motivational music.

Nobody Like a Buddy!

emoticon Whenever motivation is low or whenever you get in a rut...Having someone to go through the "pain" and the process with you makes getting up for the task at hand that much easier and enjoyable. I have yet to see the buddy system fail.

Healthy Snacks

I keep healthy snacks on hand at all times. In my desk, in my purse and in my lunch bag. I like variety so I look for snacks 110 calories or less that are filling. Pudding snack packs, fruit cups, string cheese and nuts. And drink lots of water emoticon

Mirror Mirror

I work at a desk and I keep a mirror hanging in front of my desk or on my desk so that I can quickly and easily see my reflection. This helps so much when I want to go chow down! I see how far I have come and I see how far I still have to go! It is a win win scenario!
