Start every workout with a number to beat

I like to keep my numbers from the previous day on my HRM to help motivate me to match or top that number today. That way when I pick it up I see 530 calories burned, and if I was thinking about just doing the minimum I tell myself, "I did 530 yesterday I can totally beat that today!"

Love Yourself Freely

As a cancer survivor, I learned the real meaning of enjoying my life. I count the small moments as true blessings. Many of us don't love ourselves. We give love freely to family and friends only to criticize ourselves. None of us are perfect but we all are important and significant.

Motivation

When I'm running at the gym, I pretend that the person on the treadmill next to me is a hot celebrity that I want to impress...even if it's really a fat old man.

So I choose to STAY on course and find the Diamonds !!
