'Public' Accountability

A little bit of public accountability can work wonders in staying on track. Put a chart up on your fridge where everyone can see it, and tick off each day you work out (or stay in your calorie range, or whatever). The 'embarassment' of skipping can actually be a powerful motivator.

"If you change what you believe...it changes what you can achieve."

I try to remember this saying that I heard somewhere along this journey...Also I try and remember to "Make the next right choice" especially after I've not made a good choice. I've discovered It's all about mind over matter. And I've learned the more I log into Spark People the more I stay focused

Mind set

Keeping a positive mental attitude is more than half the battle. I firmly believe that if you REALLY believe that you can accomplish, it you can!

Get Excercise

I have been doing alot of walking with my husband. It helps me to motivate for 3 or 4 mile walk if it's going to end with a yummy healthy meal or even a low-calorie beer :) We have actually tried some new restaurants around town that we never would have picked before. And we walked of course!

Exercise Fun

Make sure you have fun exercising or you won't stick with it. A varied exercise routine that you look forward to is important!

staying positive

at first most of us want to see results right then and get discouraged bc we dont, my thing is slow and steady tends to win the race rather than fast and speedy, think back to the childhood story the tortoise and the hare. id rather be the tortoise

Motivate yourself with stickers!

I actually use star stickers to mark my progress on a wall calendar. Whenever I complete a daily goal, I put a star sticker on that day. It seems so silly, but it really works! I find myself really trying to fill that calendar month with stars!

Healthy Reflections

I journal about the Healthy Reflections that are emailed to me everyday by sparkpeople. I believe they are really helping me get to know myself better.

Consistency Rewards

Whenever I exercise, i put $1 in a jar. When i eat clean and stay within calories, i put $1 in that jar. That jar is just for me, for whatever i want to buy.
It might not seem like much, but after a while, it really adds up! and you don't even notice it!
