To start my day, I measure out 8 glasses of water in a pitcher. I drink one glass before leaving for work. I take a container with 5 glasses (40 ozs) of water with me and I drink that at work. On my return home I drink the remaining 2 glasses before 6:00 pm. That way I don't have to get up all night...
Think about doing the best for yourself. Ask yourself "if not me, Who?" Look out for #1.
When you've lost weight, measure the same amount of food, place on a scale and take note. There will be a good visual of how much food you've stopped eating!
If you put off doing things, one day turns into one week, a week to a month, then it's a year that's gone by. Think of how much you could do in one year! Don't wait, start now!
I enjoy reading about the secrets of others. Keeps me motivated and I feel that I am not alone.
I try to walk every chance I get. I also wear a pedometer. At the end of the day, before my bedtime ritual, I take a look at the number of steps I've completed! What a nice surprise!
Buy items on sale and freeze them. For example some fruits & vegetables, bread and even milk. When prices go up you already have these items.
Each day I make an effort to do three things:
1) Do something nice for myself
2) Do something nice for someone else
3) Do something on my "To Do" list
These things are great motivators for a positive life.
