Motivational techniques that work for me

Saturday, December 15, 2012

It has taken along time for me to figure out what works for me. It's a real combination of stuff but the major one is having my wonderful man right beside me. It hasn't happened overnight but I've created a monster, he's all mine and I love him to bits. He was a couch potato when I first started my journey but he's now along for the ride. He was the one who signed us up for an adventure run. He's the one who has bought extra fitness equipment for us and he's the one who has adapted the menu planning and cooking to keep our calories in check.

My other motivators are SparkCoach, fitbit and myfinesspal - an android phone app that makes it much easier for me to log my food. It syncs with fitbit and the combination of the three keeps me up to date on whether I'm doing enough in the day to meet my goals. I love my life!

    Like all good partnershisp, we can achieve so much more by working together. My hubs is on board too and feeling much healthier too - he is so pleased when someone he hasn't seen for a while asks if he has lost weight. We can do it!

    You are very lucky to have such a wonderful partner. It always is better with two people or more.

    I, too, have a wonderful husband who has embraced this journey with me......

    It is the best feeling in the world to know that your best friend is along for the ride, isn't it?
