How do you stay motivated and find inspiration to stick with your program?
she loves to walk so that gets me to walk with her.we walk to grandpa and grandma on sunny days like today.we also walk around the block a few times.we also walk when we go to the store.
My husband and I started running this year. We began with 5Ks and are workig our way up to longer runs. We've never been running like that before but signing up for a monthly race helped us stay motivated to keep training and you get rewarded with a goody bag, shirts and crossing the finish line...
Whenever I backslide, goof up, or just generally fail, instead of saying "I Quit" I stop and forgive myself. Then I remember why I started this in the first place, and continue where I left off. We can forgive others, right? Why not ourselves.
I've set a goal for myself, I am going to bike ride ride at least 20 miles on a trail this summer. I am not confined by weather if it rains I go the next day, for trying to keep up with other people or spending money.
It is really hard sometimes but look to other people. What are they doing? Having a naturally competitive nature will help you to keep up or to reinvent yourself.
Remember motivation is all in mind set. Visualize and think about your goal. Come to terms with the effort and work you are going to have to put in and reach. On those days where you feel like saying 'I'll workout tomorrow'..remember that. Excuses and 'tomorrow" will never get you closer to it
cheating or mindless eating
Finishing what I start helps me stay on track. I love the rushing surge of motivation I feel just as I approach the end of my workout... it's that feeling of accomplishment and inspiration all rolled into one.
Starting to see a waist, is the motivation for me.. I don't look square anymore. So I know I'm doing something right!!!!
Just remember, what's done is done and today is a new day, to get it right, to apologize, to be thankful for what we have. Tell the people that's important to you that you love them as tomorrow is not promised to any of us. Accept the things you cannot change!
