How do you stay motivated and find inspiration to stick with your program?
I'll only have one! I'll just check my e-mails...I'll just watch one show! I'll just buy one pair, but 2 shoe boxes later...(okay 3)! Exercise is the same way for me...if I say " just 15 minutes"... I always complete my goal time of an hour! Now if I can just conquer this shoe thing!!!
I always keep one thing a size small as motivation for me to get into it. keep it where you can see it.
not exercise its an investment
I have a calendar on my fridge, and everytime I exercise, I put up a happy face on it... So everytime I go to open the door of the fridge, it's a reminder that I have been doing great so far, so I just don't open that door and get tempted!
Exercising is a quality time that I finally can spend only on me!
I am trying real hard to get my sleep cycle in line with normal living.
What motivates me right now? The first cruise I'll take in 4 weeks, the beach in June, and the family reunion in July! Summer is full of reasons to stay on track-find yours hiding inside the beach bag, in your closet of summer attire, or the summer halter dress for a family wedding! Love summer!
Husband said I looked like and felt like I was getting smaller....I dismissed him as being nice...I measured myself tonight...3 inchs lost in the waist!
I go on Facebook & look at pictures of girls I know who have bodies I'd like to have. Its so wrong but I know I'm not the only one that does it! It kinda helps me to NOT open the refrigerator when I'm bored at work...
You could do the same thing by Google-ing a celeb you admire!
Give yourself a reward that is not based around food or money, such as having a relaxing bath. This way you can break the link between a reward and food or money and keep on track.So if I have lost some weight I reward myself in other ways that do not involve food or spending money.
