Trick yourself into exercising

I am gullible and sometimes immature when it comes to telling myself I have to do things. So I made a rule: when it is time to exercise I have to put on my workout shoes. When I say "I don't want to" I start the self talk. "You know the rule!" "But I'm not going to exercise" I grumble....

How to drink more Water!

I have found that I loose more weight when I drink more water throughout the day. One of my secrets is to keep a water bottle by me at all times. Every time I get up from my desk, I take a drink. Every time I change the channel, I take a drink, and so on. I can drink double the water doing this!

Audio Books

Nothing motivates me more than to listen to a great audio book. It makes you want to keep going if you are at a climactic part or keeps you coming back day after day to see what is going to happen next. I set my treadmill or recumbent at the intensity I'm aiming for that day and go for it!

Make workouts "appointments"

I had a habit of cancelling my workouts because I didn't feel like it. To break that habit, I started entering them into my dayplanner like appointments. I even highlight them so that I can't pretend I didn't see them. Just like appointments, if I cancel one, I have to reschedule it.

Taking it slowly!!!

I started my journey in Jan 2010. However my journey started before that when I was eating out of control. So, the way I am looking at my weight loss journey is that I didn't put the weight on over 2-3 months it was over several years. So, if it takes me several years to lose 43lbs I'm ok with that.

I write a menu for two weeks at a time atleast one week in advance. Use it to shop and DO NOT buy anything not on the menu. emoticon
