Work out Buddy

I have found having someone to go walking with keeps me motivated to do it. My friend at work and I walk on our breaks. It gives us time away from work and gives us time to grip and blow off steam from the stressors at work. We even find the more gripping we do, the faster we walk.

Reminders Everywhere!

Have visual reminders everywhere you go. At home, at work, in the car. When you are constantly reminded of your healthy lifestyle, you remember to keep up with it! Also, being reminded that you are healthy will bring a little bit more confidence every day knowing you ARE doing it!

Create a visual motivational chart with positive quotes.

Post in the area where you will see it first thing when you wake up, like inside the cabinet door where your coffee is, and place another one at work.

Read Sparkpages

When I see a Sparkpage with before, during and (or) after pictures they really help to keep me motivated. I love to read them so I can find out what helps THEM be successful!

Step by Step

Looking at the whole picture keeps me focused on the end goal. It's not the restrictive rules that help me, it's knowing that everything works together to re-create a lifestyle pattern that I can live with.I can't be perfect, but I can be consistent.

Being a Team Leader

spark friends

I haven't been all that motivated, but I will admitt that having someone there to check up on me has made me more motivated. The Texty Sparks team has really helped me tons since I can't always get online.

Be a habit rabbit!

When I look at other people who seem to find fitness easy I remind myself that they are just the same as me and not superhuman.
The only difference between me and them is that they have already made fitness a habit.

When something's habitual you don't have to think about it, it just happens!

This I CAN Do

In 2001 I weighed 190 pounds and I am 5ish.
I looked into the mirror and saw a fat girl looking back at me. Her eyes didn't sparkle and her mouth neither showed a smile or a frown.
I sat down and cried.
What had I done to myself and why? Right then I knew I wanted to change.

No one will do it for you

Tired of ostracism? Rejection? Loneliness? You are the only one who can make a change. Do it. Follow spark people's plan. Exercise, and count your calories. It will work, if you put in the effort. Or, you can remain lazy and feel sorry for yourself.
