Do Something That Pushes Your Limits

When you've been out of the fitness loop for a while, try a new fitness activity that's really tough. Hike a mountain peak, ride a bike to a record distance, go kayaking for the first time, or try a ropes course. Your success will empower and inspire you to get back to your fitness goals again!

Exercise: Just Do It

Finding the drive to exercise can be hard sometimes. Hardly anyone wakes up in the morning and thinks, "Wow, 7 a.m. is a really great time for a run, I can't wait!" But if you can just get yourself up from wherever you are and just DO it, it'll only be a few minutes before you're excited to get fit!

Stop negative self talk

It's easy to demean ourselves for "falling off the wagon". When I've done it I feel less worthy AGAIN.
So...I think if we simply realize we are worthy the biggest barrier is broken down. Get back on the wagon and realize this time I'll do it !!

Drink that water!

I know this may sound silly, but when I drink the recommended amount of water (and sometimes beyond) I don't have as many little aches and pains as I would without doing so. I have a facial as a treat once in a great while and they always comment that my skin is well hydrated. Yay water!

When you're sleeping, you're not eating!

I've noticed that the times I eat the most are the times I sleep the least, especially when I'm up all night and no one is around to see me or keep me accountable. Getting to sleep on time means you aren't awake to get those cravings for inappropriate snacks, and keeps your calorie count lower!

Use your blog.

Use your blog to keep yourself accountable for everything. When you stumble, write about it. When you have a success, write about it. Being able to look back at your setbacks, successes, and encouragement from others will be invaluable.

Starting Over

Starting over. I re-evaluated from head to toe, including tracking food, exercise, measurements and weight.
"I was doing the same thing over and over expecting to get different results."
