Achievable Goals

My ability to stay focus and on track has to do with the small goals that I set since I am able to hold myself accountable.

Make mini goals and post 'em!

You know what you want to do. What are your ultimate goals? How are you going to get there? Sometimes they seem monumental. Set mini-goals. Weekly, monthly, or longer, and post them. Write them out in a blog, journal, or on paper and POST IT. Be accountable, check them off and be proud! You did it!!

Don't want to work out?

On those days when I don't want to get up at 4:30 AM to work out, I say to myself "Remember, you've never regretted a workout, but you always regret NOT working out." Works every time!

Oooh! Stickers!

I give myself a non-food reward everyday that I exercise or stay on track (including rest days). On my hanging calendar, I give myself one sticker for every workout, rest day, goal met... it's amazing what a filled calendar looks like filled with stickers and how it makes you feel. emoticon

Listen to "Free Bird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd during your Exercise Warm-up!

Nothing sets my spirit free from my busy day like "Free Bird' by Lynyrd Skynyrd. It reminds me that exercise and a healthy lifestyle will help me "travel on" and will "unchain" me from the shackles of being overweight and unhealthy. It's one of the best transitions for me from work to exercise. emoticon

Staying Focused

If I am having a "should I or shouldn't I" moment... I visualize myself at my goal weight doing something that I am unable to do right now. Then I ask myself, Would this choice I'm pondering, get me closer or further from my goal?9 out of 10 times, I make the right choice. emoticon

Wagon Help

When you fall off the wagon, don't worry, it will stop so you can get back on. As the wagon begins moving remember to use your seat belt (your friends @ SP) this time so you are less likely to fall out! emoticon
