i like what utmostrose said about telling yourself that it won't last forever. I do that too. I just let myself know that I'm not going to be doing this all day and night and if I just get through this last few minutes I'll feel like a million bucks afterwards because I did it!

I just think about how many times I've tried and failed and how this time is going to be different.

Ok so I run/jog/walk on the Chicago lakefront. I've got three landmarks along the way. The Aquarium, the harber, and McCormick place. When I get tired I can see McCormick place and know that I am closer than the last time I wanted to stop. Then on the way back I know that the gate to the barber is halfway between McCormick and the Aquarium. And the Aquarium is half way to LakeShore Drive and Lake Shore drive isn't that far from Michigan and Michigan is when I get to STOP RUNNING!!!

Don't you wanna be the life of the party.

THE ANGEL PLAYLIST:
1.) Stand Out- Tevin Campbell
2.) You Don't Own Me- Bette Midler, Diane Keaton, and Goldie Hawn.
3.) Let's Hear It For Me!- Barbara Streisand
4.) 1000 MIles- Proclaimers

I try to think of the feeling of when the pain ends, and how it can't last forever :)

When my mind says stop, I start thinking about my weight loss goals and what I want to accomplish doing it. My fitness model is Beyonce so I think about, if Beyonce can run or squat so can I. If all else fails I start singing to myself to take my mind off of what my body is doing.

I try to breathe through the pain. I also watch TV or listen to music to distract myself from focusing on how much more I have to do

I used what I learned in yoga, to breathe through it.

When I'm feeling the pain I look at where I'm at, then think of my goal, then find some where in the middle to convince myself that is where I'll stop, then once I get to that place, I do the same thing.

Occasionally I refuse to look down at how long I've been running, and so I tell myself it's only been 3 minutes when it's been 20.

I'm the same as HOTMAMA - once I start feeling the pain and want to turn down the speed or resistance, I channel Jillian (even though I like Bob way better) and say to myself, "15 MORE SECONDS! PUSH IT! GO!" and finish up whatever set I'm doing. I also try to remember I'm not going to exceed my fitness ability if I don't push what I've got now!

I channel my inner Bob or Jillian (depending on my mood) from The Biggest Loser. Instead of thinking "I have to stop", I start thinking "I have to push through it, I CAN do it".

When you start feeling it the most it is important to push through it as long as you can because that feeling is your muscles changing.

Push through it with positive thinking! Imagine your self at your goal weight (or whatever it is that you want) and how good it feels to know you are getting stronger and fitter!

You can do anything you set your mind to!

All I tell myself "I can do it!" I keep repeating it and that gets me through.

So, lately it's been hard to get through my workouts, especially when my mind starts saying, "Stop! I don't like this!"

I was wondering how you guys push yourself through that point, or what you think of/do when your mind starts yelling at you. Any tips?
