Progress

Aim for progress not perfection

I don't know one person that is perfect, but that is what we tend to expect of ourselves.

Not "Willpower"... WANT-power!!!

I am always asked how I have the willpower to not eat the "free chips" @ our fav restaurant, or pass on the desserts during work potlucks. It's not "willpower"... it"s WANTpower! I "want" to lose a lb. or 2 more than eating those extra calories... and I know the weight loss will mean more to me!

Incentives

Every time I feel like I am about to give up I give myself a little something. Like today I thought I was going to eat a piece of pizza but I told myself no and for that I get to go to the pool hall tonight for an hour or two.

Achievable Goals

My ability to stay focus and on track has to do with the small goals that I set since I am able to hold myself accountable.

Make mini goals and post 'em!

You know what you want to do. What are your ultimate goals? How are you going to get there? Sometimes they seem monumental. Set mini-goals. Weekly, monthly, or longer, and post them. Write them out in a blog, journal, or on paper and POST IT. Be accountable, check them off and be proud! You did it!!

Don't want to work out?

On those days when I don't want to get up at 4:30 AM to work out, I say to myself "Remember, you've never regretted a workout, but you always regret NOT working out." Works every time!

Oooh! Stickers!

I give myself a non-food reward everyday that I exercise or stay on track (including rest days). On my hanging calendar, I give myself one sticker for every workout, rest day, goal met... it's amazing what a filled calendar looks like filled with stickers and how it makes you feel. emoticon
