Promotional

I joined a gym for a discount because they want to use me to advertise! Now I'm accountable to a gym for my weight loss and exercise! I have to go a minimum of three times a week to stay in the contract. Talk about motivation!

Photo Capture

I love to take pictures of everything that inspires me! From me making a healthy meal, my husband working out with me, or the scale! Anything! Post it up on a Motivational board so you always remember why you're doing this!

just 5 minutes

When I don't feel like working out, I tell myself I'll do just 5 min. Then if I still don't feel like working out I can stop, but by the end of the first 5 min. I feel so energized that I can't wait to do more.

T-SHIRT MOTIVATION

I bought a cool t-shirt, and my nephew said it looked like it could fit the 16 month old. I put it on and said it would look good when I lost some weight. He said I already looked like I had washboard abs! I now wear it when I need to remember how far I've come.

Walking

Having a partner to walk with helps me exercise on a daily basis. My wife and I take time to walk and we each have our own home exercise routine as well.

Sign up for Races

Signing up for races in upcoming weeks and months keeps me training for a goal. It prevents me from doubting my abilities when the race comes up. I signed up for it, I better run it: Ready or Not.
