Motivating Me

Thursday, May 26, 2011

As part of my quest to a healthier and more dedicated me, I've put up some hand-made vision collages and motivational posters around the house.


This one is located next to the fridge, taped over the TV that is in the kitchen in our apartment. Since it is one of the first things I see in the morning as I pull my smoothie makings from the fridge, it reminds me of my commitment. As I see it again while making or heating up leftovers for lunch, it gets me going again.


As part of my recommitment to myself, I have to eat at least two meals a day sitting at the kitchen table, rather than on the couch watching TV or in front of the computer screen. This is what I see on the wall. Below it is a year-long calendar where I have the 5k and sprint tri marked down. As soon as I find a 10k in my area for this fall, it is going up there too!


This one I posted on the door to my closet. My closet in the past has often been a source of rage and frustration, as one item after another made me feel fat and frumpy. No more. If I don't like how something looks on me, I close the door, look at this poster, take a few deep breaths and remember that I am taking steps EVERY DAY in the right direction. I accept who I am now. I look forward to who I am going to be. I do not beat myself up about not being able to zip this or that up. It will come, in time.
