Motivational Images

I made a collage featuring motivational words and pictures of inspirational celebs, clothes I want to own, and people I admire. I put it right in my living room where I can alway see it. Then when I'm watching TV and having an urge to snack, I remember exactly why I'm trying to get healthy!

Wear A Pedometer

I put on my pedometer when I put on my clothes. This makes me very aware of how much time I spend moving in the run of a day. Some days are 22 000 days and others are 11 000 but I always get 10 000 no prob! & having a cheerleader to report to at the end of the night helps too!

Coffee Drinker!!

I read that yellow coffe mugs give you more energy. So i tried it. I learned that if I drink a cup of coffee in my yellow mug.....decaf or not it will give me more energy. I have seasonal depression and since yellow is bright like the sun it will actually brighten my mood!

Out with FRUMPY

I have done some spring cleaning and purged ALL clothes that equal FRUMPY... that way I'll never wear clothes that make me FEEL frumpy again. This helps in making me feel good about myself.

It is 4:03 am and I am still on the PC and I have gotten into bed at 5 or 6 in the morning the last 3 days. I have got to stop this.

Did you know that...

Having a bad diet day? Research has shown that happy optimistic people live longer than pessimists? So the next time you have a bad thought just let it go.

Be firm!

When you feel like skipping a workout and give excuses like being tired, be firm with yourself. Tell your lazy side to get over it! Works for me all the time. It's like speaking to a child, be firm and clear.
