We always talk about the " Light at the End of the Tunnel " being something that we strive for and sometimes desperately need to stay motivated. If we remembered our FAITH we can remember that there is a " LIGHT " inside us all that will help us always see our next step. So I remember to look for the " LIGHT " within instead of the end of the tunnel!
When you think about healthy eating, think about your body like you would your car! That means Gas = Food, would you put the wrong or cheap, "crappy" gas in your car?? Vitamins and Minerals = pieces and parts to the car, if even one part in your car was broken or missing it effects a lot more of the car and your body is the same way. Oil = water, would you really run your car and run it hard if you were low on oil?? Anyway those are the things I make myself think about!!
A plateau is the time to look back at your accomplishments and the things you need to improve. By re-evaluating these two categories you should have enough NEW information AND ideas to change your goals! Exercise is like education. . . you can only read the same book so many times and continue to learn something new! Be excited to start a "NEW BOOK"
Making life a game is what keeps me on track to accomplishing my goals. Setting up goals and then keeping track of how well you are doing can be hard sometimes in life, but if you set it up as a game and give yourself something to "win" may help keep you motivated.
