One more week then back to work...

Sunday, August 16, 2015

Well, not even really because I have to go in this week to finish some things up from June!! I don't mind, though, I always find the beginning of the school year invigorating and motivating, just like the beginning of my guiding year and beginning again with SparkPeople (which I've done several times!). The question is how to maintain that motivation? How to keep myself just as excited in February as I am in September? How to keep myself motivated past that 14 day check-in?

I know that when I stay involved in the SP forums that keeps my motivation up just as when I connect with fellow-guiders that also keeps my motivation up. I know that when I take time to read and relax I don't get run down and draggy. I know when I eat right and do even a small amount of exercise I feel proud of myself and motivated. Now just to put those things into practice and don't stop!!

So, here I go...goals for this year!

Work--hold at least 2 book clubs/semester
Guiding--plan meetings at least one month ahead, get outside at least once per month
Food--focus on 8 cups water/day and 5 fruits/veggies/day
Exercise--wear pedometer and get 100 more steps every day, exercise 4 days/week

I know I can do this! I know I WILL do this!!

    I know you will do this too! Perhaps blog each week to hold yourself accountable? Solid plan with motivation!! Remember the quote about motivation is like bathing and it doesn't last, so you have to do it every day!! Something like that.... ReSpark your motivation daily!!
