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 :)

Try On Something That Used To Fit Perfectly

The numbers on my scale aren't moving very fast but I know changes are happening. I tried on a dress that I wore to a party about a month ago that fit me perfectly, but now it's loose around my waistline and thighs. I'm motivated to keep it up because progress is just that, not instant.

Loving myself

Once I really get into a healthy mindset, I find that I'm nicer to myself. I eat, not only more healthily, but more of a variety. I'll even make myself a special meal if I want it, but my family doesn't. I enjoy food and exercise more. I treat myself as I would a dear friend, in word and deed.
