I keep a notebook of things that motivate me and add at least one thing to it daily.

Some pages are collages of pictures I like. Another page has inspirational quotes. I keep a gratitude list and add things I'm thankful for often. I also keep my bucket list in the notebook. There are lots of journaling activities I have done in the notebook as well. I doesn't matter what it is really; if it motivates or inspires me, it goes in the notebook. There is something about a paper journal that makes me feel good.

It has to be special

if something isn't over the top fantastic, truly unique, i pass it up or i think to myself, i have had that before i know how it tastes. like pudding or even a candy bar i have had a bunch of times, i already know what it tastes like. but i will treat myself to a canoli at a festival. it has to be special...also eat lots of protien

Be kind

Remember that Rome was not built in a day and neither will our ideal bodies. As we journey towards our goals we need to remember to be kind to ourselves. Every choice is just a little step closer to our achievement.

Speak to yourself like you would your daughter.

It's much more motivating to hear something positive and kind than negative and mean. I would never let my child feel bad about herself no matter what she looks like. I would do whatever it takes to make her happy and healthy both physically and mentally.

Kick start your metabolism with a short morning workout

Break through a plateau by kick starting your metabolism in the morning with a short workout. After a frustrating plateau, I started riding the stationary bike in the morning for 15 mins, in addition to my regular workouts. Within days my weight started going down again. Plus, a 100 kcal workout every morning adds up to an extra full days workout by the end of the week.

Ice cream replacement

Put your favorite 0% fat fruit flavored yogurt in the freezer for 3 hrs and it'll have the texture and taste of ice cream in a fraction of the calories! (My favorite is Elle & Vire 0% fat strawberry yogurt at just 51 kcals!)

A question I ask myself weekly...

Every week I ask myself one question: "If the scale never moves again, was my life made better for this week's efforts to work out and eat mindfully or worse?" And the answer is always 'Way better!" no matter what the scale tells me that particular week... That particular question always refocuses for me the best and most uplifting internal motivation I have found.

Your Body Wants Nutrients, Not Calories

Dr. Oz said this on one of his shows. He explained that the body will crave food, even if it is not officially "hungry." If you eat healthy, nutrient-rich foods, you will satisfy your body, and it will not crave high calorie, empty foods. It really hit a cord with me.
