Staying active through the day

Always look for ways to stay active throughout the day. I find it helpful to take the stairs rather than the elevator, and try to go for short walks during my lunch break.

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!

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!
