Exercise can be tough - to start, and to keep going. Mentally switching gears off of grumpiness and onto 'The Three Rs' helps me persevere.

REMEMBER: self discipline is remembering what you REALLY want.
RECORD: everything, good & bad; track/write it down.
REWARD: yourself for goals met.

  • Discipline gets such a bad rap and we tend to resist it so much! But this is a great reminder that self-discipline is really just living the life we dream of. All right, let's go! (And then rewarding ourselves for doing it - wo, talk about healthy double-dipping!) - by AMAZINGANN
