Don't weigh yourself after a sinful day!

Weighing yourself right after having a bad day will not reflect your true weight! So this might get you down without a good reason. Just get back on track and weigh yourself then! emoticon

A message to those stuck, absolutely stuck

You don't have to sit on that couch or lay in bed beneath the covers. You don't have to go to the kitchen and graze for comfort or to hide behind. You *don't*. You have the power within you to take a stand. It's scary, it's definitely an uphill process, DONT be afraid to let go of the things that GOT YOU here (struggling with weight, most likely a lot of health issues). DONT be afraid and DONT put it off. if YOU want to feel better about yourself, then DO something about it RIGHT now.

How important is it?

If something is important to you, you will find a way to succeed. If it's not, you will find an excuse to not do it.

Reading or Watching the News When Exercising

When I think about skipping my gym workout on the way home from work (thinking "I'm too tired"), I convince myself to go anyway by telling myself I will just "read my kindle" or watch the news at the gym, and workout on the treadmill or stair stepper. If I have these distractions, the time goes by quicker, and I often end up staying a little longer, just to finish the chapter or the show.

Resentment transformed into motivation

In my previous job, I was in a physical and motivational rut. With high responsibility and supervisory duties, I felt trapped at my desk, not even taking lunch. I resented how others seemed to leave so easily, especially the smokers who would go for their breaks. I realized that resentment only hurt me inside. I chose to start a "stair break" for 5 minutes to take the 5-level flight of stairs once. I struggled but eventually built up to taking them 5 times in 10 minutes, and felt like a winner!

Inspiration Collage

I made a collage of encouraging quotes and photos of places I have been active in the past - kayaking and backpacking. It also includes photos of places I want to hike, canoe, and wildlife I want to see. Currently, there are 8 quotes and 25 photos taped to my closet doors. I have added pictures to my profile to give you an idea of the layout.
