How do you stay motivated and find inspiration to stick with your program?
We are stronger in a group.
I know I walk furter than I think I can when I go with someone else. I won't call uncle at the first twinge when I am not alone.
Its better for me and my lazy dog when we walk and play with others where others can see us and we can see them - we don't dawdle as oft...
I let a few good friends know what my goal for weight loss and exercise was. These friends help me stay on track, motivate me and share experiences so I stay positive and motivated. We've also made some joint goals and rewards which keeps us all motivated.
For every mile I put $.50 in a can.
Have not decided what I will do with it. But I'm sure it will be fun.
I like to blow bibbles. It motivate and relaxes me.
Immediately after getting out of bed, I put on my workout clothes. Then, I feel guilty if I change for work or the day without spending some time exercising. I drive my daughter to school and head to the gym at least 3 days a wk. Don't sit down to check email or even turn on the tv
Hi. I have found that tracking is my secret to success. When I eat foods difficult to track, I tend to not track for the whole day. This has derailed me more than once. I am committed to eating foods, for now, that I can track so I can reach my goal weight!
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!!!
