I use HAZELMAIL.COM to send myself a motivational postcard. It's cheap and easy. Receiving a postcard days after I sent it to myself is uplifting. More information on the postcards is on my blog http://www.sparkpeople.com/m ypage_public_journal_ind ividual.asp?blog_id=3014 315

Be Your Own Best Friend! Schedule appointments with yourself!
This month I am using the SparkPeople Planner feature to schedule appointments with myself to exercise, drink the water, take time for strength training, sit down for meditation, etc. You can send yourself daily emails (Jilliam Michaels doesn't have to do it) and remind yourself about your goals, send yourself a motivating quotation, keep appointments to exercise, & congratulate yourself on a job well done! It is amazing how much it is boosting my efforts!!!306
The Planner feature can be accessed from your Start page by clicking on the drop down button titled Planner. Also, you will find it in the middle of your SparkPoints page and you will earn 1 point for each appointment!!!
Make a list of all the cards you will need either for 6 mos or a year. Make one trip to the store and purchase them all. Address all the envelopes and put the MAIL BY date where the stamp would go and then sort them by month. Put them in a decorative container on your desk or work area.
We forgive those around us all the time..sometimes for some pretty awful stuff. How come we can't forgive ourselves for that candy bar we ate? why does it send us over the edge and we give up on our promise to get healthy? Forgive yourself brsuh yourself off and let it go...it will take practice but once you learn to forgive yourself the candy bar loses it's power to derail everything and you will stay on track easier and when you fall off getting back on is no sweat.
