Mini-Vision Board

Many people make a vision board/collage/goal-board or whatever you want to call it. You can put quotes and motivational images on it and hang it were you can see it everyday. Well, I created a "mini-vision board" I carry in my purse and look at any time of the day.

The Motivation Jar

Every time you are done a workout, write what was so great about it on a small piece of paper (e.g. "I felt strong when I ran today"). Then fold the paper and add it to your motivation jar. When you are feeling less motivated, you can reach in and read a few papers to get you pumped up to workout again.

Never Give Up

Never give up on losing weight just because of the time it'll take to accomplish it.

The time will pass anyway.

Listening

I find that "listening" to others (blogs, posts, emails, etc) is what is helping my motivation go from zero to "rockin"! thanks SP!

Sing a song

When I'm really bummed and need a quick pick me up, I turn up the volume really loud and sing along with whatever is on the radio! It is an instant mood booster for me!

Don't Set Limits for Yourself

Stop telling yourself what you can't do and instead focus on the things you can do and are doing. You will be amazed at the things you will accomplish when you tell yourself "I can do this" and then keep moving forward towards your goals!!!

Doing the math

When my weight loss slows down and I start to get discouraged, I pull out my calculator. There are 3500 calories in a pound, so even a loss of a pound means a lot of calories burned or not eaten. It helps keep me on track.
