Dont Be So Hard On Yourself!!!

We all have set back or fall off the wagon from time to time! Its called BEING HUMAN! Dont be so hard on yourself if you dont do so great or have a bad day! Get up! Brush yourself off and use it as motivation to do better the next day! WE CAN DO THIS!!!

Too see quick results

I was just reading you can develop your arm muscles in as little as two weeks. So, if you want to see some fast results that would be the area to work with resistance.

work

Sunday I cut 4 to 5 acres of grass, picked strawberries, cut asparagus, watered, Baked 4 cakes and iced, cleaned up the dishes, cake panes, cleaned the counters, stove top and finally stopped at 12:49 am. Felt good but have to watch the back.

It's Beyond Me

I spent a fair amount of time with my wonderful family today, and it reminded me that I'm not changing just for myself. I want to spend a long, healthy, and active life with them by my side.

Inspiration Notebook

I know Sparkpoeple tells you to make a collage so I took it one step further and started a notebook to fill with my inspiration. I plan on using it when I get down and to look back on in a few years! I cut out pictures and articles from magazines and put them in a notebook like a scrapbook.

Reward yourself

After I lost my first 20 lbs, I got a tattoo I've wanted for awhile. When I reached my first goal (29lbs), I went shopping. How motivating is it to shop for smaller clothes!?!? This keeps me going; looking forward to my next reward after reaching my 2nd goal, which will probably be a girls vacation...

Remember what you felt like before

If you find your motivation slipping, remember how you felt before you starting changing your life and compare it to how you felt when you were following a healthy lifestyle. That will help you get back on track.
