Guilt yourself into working out!

If I don't feel the "urge to burn", meaning I look at my gym and walk by really fast and pretend I didn't see it, I know I need extra motivation. Most nights, before I go to bed, I track what fitness I need to do the next day (I have mine listed in groupings by day.) So the workout is there and waiting on me to finish it. If I can't get moving, I keep staring at that fitness tracker and it will eventually "guilt" me into working out because I can't stand to erase it and do nothing.

Positive Affirmation Reminders!

I have actually found a new trick that works for me on motivation and positive reinforcement. I go into my Yahoo or SparkPeople calendar and add 1 positive statement that repeats for an entire week that I will read as an e-mail when I check my e-mail every day.

For instance, for the next 7 days I will be reading "Don't stress about your hearing; your attorney is working FOR you, not against you" every morning this week.

And next week I already have one set up to start on Sunday.

Fruit all over the place while I am watching TV

When I sit down to watch evening TV, because I cannot give it up, I keep fruit on a plate and eat the fruit instead of chips or anything else. If I don't eat them, it's okay. If I do, it's still okay because I have already added them to my tracker. So there are no chips or snacks to reach for that are not healthy. Some people don't like to eat so much before bedtime, but I start munching around 8 pm and quit by 10 pm. I am usually asleep by 1 am, but never on an empty stomach.

Go for yogurt when you need calories or are in doubt

If you find that you just ate under calories for the day, eat a cup or two of Fat Free Light yogurt. Most store brands carry a wonderful selection that will be around 100 cals, and less than 20 carbs (like Publix brand).

And the flavors are great! Instead of eating a piece of cake, I eat Black Forst Cake yogurt, or Carrot Cake yogurt.

There's a reason Michael & Fiona eat yogurt on Burn Notice - it's good for you, cheap to buy, & is great for energy!
