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

Progress

Be sure to set a goal of what you want to do, in any area of your life, including exercises, calories, water consumption, etc, and track every thing you do. Remember its a progress and not perfection, everyday is a new chance to hit your goals!!!

Tell yourself you can do it

In your head, when you wake up tell yourself you can do it that day. Whatever it is...exercise, eating right, keeping your focus. If you hear it, over and over, that you will be a success, it is much more likely to happen!

Display my "skinny" photos

I was thin once and at various times so I have those photos to remind me I was there once, I can get there again! I may not look like I did when I was 20, but those images tell me I can get close! emoticon

Look at everything in a positive way!

No matter what happens it is important for me to look at things in a different and positive way. The old "if life gives you lemons, make lemonade" attitude. If I gain weight, the gain is motivation to put in extra workout or be creative with my meals.

Motivational Mug

I have a photo travel mug that I bought at Starbucks.
I customize it with my SP wall paper or something else that reminds me to behave, grab it first thing in the morning and sip on it till bedtime.
