How do you stay motivated and find inspiration to stick with your program?
Some medications make you gain weight or keep you from loosing weight. Make sure to talk with your doctor if you taking medications while trying to loose weight.
while exercising i think of my sweat as fat just melting off of me. that gives me extra motivation to kick it up a notch and push even harder to sweat more (melt more fat)
You may have an ideal body in mind, but don't wait until you have lost all the weight to dress for it! Figure out your body shape, your ideal colours and dress to impress NOW!
By encouraging other people on spark or in the here and now, not only gives that person a spark of motivation but by sparking them you get sparked as well. In other words what goes around comes around!
Pick a gym that you DRIVE by on your way home from work. That way, you can only always guilt yourself into that workout because really, the gym is RIGHT THERE!
I find that when I send someone an e-mail, make a phone call, send a letter via snail mail, or even a text message to motivate someone I end up being the one who is motivated.
Try to not worry about what is to come or what has passed. Just live in the moment. That's what it's all about!
Life is about ups and downs. Just like it is impossible to be always up, it is impossible to be always down. If you are feeling down just look up and you might find someone or something there to pull you up!
Got DVR? DVR your fav tv exercise shows and do the workout over and over and over until you have it. FitTV on digital cable has great exercise & dance shows which I DVR to do later when the house is quiet.
Instead of focusing on a life problem, it helps to get out and exercise, jog, go to the gym, put a video to work out at home. The problem won't disappear, only with focus on being positive for yourself, coping and resolution are conjured up. Exercise is the best arsenal stress relief.
