I think that I get discouraged and eat what I shouldn't

I try to be perfect when I do something, but then there is a part of me that knows that I am not. So when I get to that point I want to eat something that I shouldn't. The candy tastes good and so does the brownies. In the meantime I gain weight back that I have worked so hard to get off.

Motivation on the wall

I started putting up motivational quotes that speak to me on my cubicle wall at work. I write them out all pretty with colorful markers. One of my favorites: "Always do what you are afraid to do." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Never Give Up!

Never Give Up - This is a principle which applies to everything in life but will show the results much faster when applied to fitness, when in doubt remember Edison.. how many times did he try before he invented and perfected the light bulb?

90% of Success is Just Showing Up

On the days I don't feel like working out, I make myself change into my comfy workout clothes and put on my tennis shoes. I find that, after I am dressed and ready to go, I am 90% more likely to workout than if I had stayed in my jeans or dress clothes. Now, I automatically change when I get home!

Reward Yourself

I am rewarding myself for my weight loss. For every pound I lose I put $1 in a jar and when I get so much I am going to do something for me. Maybe buy a new outfit, schedule a spa day, manicure/pedicure, massage. Just something to spoil ME, and reward myself for a job well done!

Going to be earlier

Going to bed earlier is one of the first steps to success for me. If I go to bed an hour earlier then I am not hitting the snooze button in the morning, I can get up and have breakfast not be rushed, and get in morning exersises. To me that is better than watching another hour of re-runs on tv.

The Correct Approach!

The correct approach to anything is how you view and see it. For example, do you view each day as a :DO-OVER DAY"/ Or do you view each day as a NEW DAY with new challenges, opportunities and Trials.

As long as you are going forward you are a winner

Do not live your life in regret. It has helped me a lot to keep the focus on the NOW and the FUTURE. I can't change the past but I can change what I am doing NOW and what I am going to do in the FUTURE.

So go forward because it is there were the stuff is happening :)
