Don't Wait for Others... Encourage Yourself!

There is a song by Donald Lawrence called Encourage Yourself that really keeps me motivated when I feel like I'm just not there yet.

It starts... "Sometimes you have to encourage yourself.
Sometimes you have to speak victory during the test."

So, speak victory over yourself and your goals!

Perfection is overrated

Setbacks and mistakes are a very important part of living and growing. It's one of the most effective ways we learn. Don't dwell on them. Briefly study what went wrong, and move on, tweaking things a little to find your next good groove.

Mini exercise sessions really work!

I have two 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute break during my workday. I have started taking walks (either outside, or in the office gym) even if only 10 minute. I can burn between 50 and 100 calories each time, and it does add up!

Schedule Exercise

I made exercise a regular part of my day. Before I retired, I even wrote it in on my day planner. It became such a habit that it felt odd if I had to miss a day. In retirement, it's my job. Instead of being at work at 8:00. I'm at the gym.

Don't Give up on Yourself

Losing weight is a tough journey, but one that does not happen overnight.
We have to change our way of thinking, both with diet and exercise, but the important thing to remember is that you are worth all the hard work it is going to take to make these changes.
So don't ever give up on yourself!

Follow the 4 SparkDiet stages

This was one of the first tools provided by Sparkpeople and it really works for me! Don't be afraid to go back to a previous stage if that's where you really are or move ahead to the next one when you are ready. The process really works! emoticon

Live it the way you lost it!

Once you hit goal, don't think you can "go back to eating the way you used to." You have a little more freedom, but it's not a huge amount. Stick with that activity plan, stick with all those healthy foods you found. You'll need 'em forever.

Letting go

Everyday I have the opportunity to make many decisions, some are great and some well, need work. I'm learning to congratulate myself for the great decisions and letting go and forgiving myself for the not so great decisions. It is a process on the road to health.

High Fiber Dinner to Stop Snacking at Night

Eating a high fiber dinner keeps me full so I don't eat after dinner.

Example - Basmati brown rice, sweet potato, pinto beans, salad, chicken.

The meals are interesting as I use the foods as sides or ingredients.
