Keeping My Motivation Up

I struggle with motivation. To help myself keep motivated, I like to encourage others by making positive comments on blogs and in posts. I also like to read the SparkPages of SparkPeople Motivators, which can be found linked on the main SparkPages page.

Track ahead of time

I track all of my "other" goals and glasses of water in the morning before I've done them. Since that gets me SparkPoints immediately, I'll make sure I meet my goals because I'd feel guilty having gotten points for nothing at the end of the day.

Start movin, stay movin

I listen to a great life coach named Scott Smith and his Motivation to Move podcasts. Daily Boost is free on itunes. He has great titbit's of motivation and for his paying premium members it comes to me 11 times a week. His motto is start moving, stay moving once you take a step just repeat!

make small changes so you don't get discouraged

Make small changes, and once you start if you want to do more go for it. It helps build up consistency And remember for every step in the positive healthy way it is one less step in the unhealthy lifestyle. Every step counts even if they are small.

Special Workout Time

To keep myself motivated and enjoying my workouts, I watch my favorite shows or listen to my favorite music ONLY when I workout so that I enjoy my runs and associate positive things with running on my treadmill. I think back to the positive things about working out when I feel too tired to run.
