Do it in the morning

Become an AM exerciser and your more likely to stick with it. Numerous articles here on spark with agree, those who workout in the am stay with it.. Why? Its done and over with. You don't have the whole day to come up with reasons not to.

Keeps Mind Wondering

Listening to music keeps your mind wondering from the Treadmill, elliptical, or whatever you're on... It keeps you busy so you're not focusing on the time, calories burned, distance or dreading the countdown! This is what keeps me in the gym!

Forgiving

Learning the ability to forgive myself when I go off course on lifes journey whether it is diet related, fitness releated, or family related. Learning that if I eat that piece of cake its not going to destroy what I have accomplished.

Doing the Activities on the Sparkpeople.com website

I find that logging in every day and doing the activities, like answering the trivia questions and reading articles, help keep me focused on the process of fitness and weight loss/maintenance. Earning points for these activities is rewarding, too. Enjoy!

You have to do it for yourself!

My entire life having people tell me that I was 'too fat', or I would be so pretty if I just lost a few pounds. I have realized that this has to be for ME, and not because everyone else wants me to, or because it would make THEM feel better! Now I am focusing on me, and am finally succeeding!

Rely on yourself

Having a workout buddy can be fun and useful, but there will come a day when they are unavailable. Don't count on them to drag your butt to the workouts; rely on yourself.

A Balanced Plate

When I put together a meal, I like to make sure it's balanced. I usually fill the plate 1/4 protein (meat, beans, etc), 1/4 carbs and 1/2 fruits or veggies. It leaves me satisfied and I usually don't end up scrambling to fill my protein quota at the end of the day.

Save Water and Clean at the same time

After washing dishes, there's always extra water on the counter, so I use a paper towel to clean it up then wash the rest of the counters with it. This prevents me from turning on the faucet and waiting for it to get hot/cold and wasting the water just so I can wash the counters.
