How do you stay motivated and find inspiration to stick with your program?
I got lazy regarding my tracking. My excuses roared, and I went to the old me with excuses such as another bite doesn't matter or to a little bit more was OK. Without the tracking, I did not hold myself accountable. The scale barked back. I truly do appreciate tracking.
It's an easy way to get motivation to get moving. You decide how many reps you want to do, but someone else picks the exercise. You never want to be the one that's it!!! And Cardio tag gets the juices moving! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individual.asp?gid=35082
I'll only have one! I'll just check my e-mails...I'll just watch one show! I'll just buy one pair, but 2 shoe boxes later...(okay 3)! Exercise is the same way for me...if I say " just 15 minutes"... I always complete my goal time of an hour! Now if I can just conquer this shoe thing!!!
I always keep one thing a size small as motivation for me to get into it. keep it where you can see it.
not exercise its an investment
I have a calendar on my fridge, and everytime I exercise, I put up a happy face on it... So everytime I go to open the door of the fridge, it's a reminder that I have been doing great so far, so I just don't open that door and get tempted!
Exercising is a quality time that I finally can spend only on me!
I am trying real hard to get my sleep cycle in line with normal living.
What motivates me right now? The first cruise I'll take in 4 weeks, the beach in June, and the family reunion in July! Summer is full of reasons to stay on track-find yours hiding inside the beach bag, in your closet of summer attire, or the summer halter dress for a family wedding! Love summer!
