Finding competive events to take part in

After I took part in a Turkey Trot this past Thanksgiving I got turned on by wearing a bib and having a timer on me. I'm not a runner (maybe someday) but I look for events such as 5k, 10k or other events that also encourage walkers. It makes me keep moving forward.

One Day At A Time

Don't stress out about what I need to do or should do for the week, month, or year. I take it one day at a time. Even if I miss the mark today, as long as GOD blesses me to see another day, I have a chance to get it right. No condemnation from anyone (including self). Miss it, own it, do better.

Learn to enjoy it!

At first I hated to go to the gym. SO I learned to plan a healthy snack that I loved for my after gym time. Now when I exercise, I can look forward to that VIta Top muffin top with peanut butter or whatever enjoyable snack I have planned and it keeps me going.

Progress

Aim for progress not perfection

I don't know one person that is perfect, but that is what we tend to expect of ourselves.

Not "Willpower"... WANT-power!!!

I am always asked how I have the willpower to not eat the "free chips" @ our fav restaurant, or pass on the desserts during work potlucks. It's not "willpower"... it"s WANTpower! I "want" to lose a lb. or 2 more than eating those extra calories... and I know the weight loss will mean more to me!
