excercise

Always go with a friend... keep each other accountable. One of you always is motivated. Even if it means a 4 mile walk to get that tall skinny latte instead of driving to get a venti turtle mocha!

Be Grateful for what you do have, Stop dwelling on what you don't have!

I have broken my annkle and I was really feeling down about it, I can't do anything that I love to do; dance-walk! I can't do hardly anything for myself! I called a friend- my dance teacher broken hearted about it, and she told me a friend of hers told her something when her dad died......

Look for a few teams that you connect with & get involved by posting daily in their chat room & other message threads. Blog & comment on teammate's blogs. In a short time you will connect with some team members & forge a friendship. This helps with motivation & working your plan.

Use your computer passwords to remind yourself of your goals

If you use a computer a lot, change your passwords to something that motivates you...for example "NewFitMe" or "GettinSkinny". You'll be reminded of your goal every time you have to log in.

Share your goals

To keep you on the right path towards better health, share your goals with a co-worker. That way when the donuts are calling, they can help be your strength to resist. Let them know how important this is to you.

Life is a Choice

Life is a choice. I can choose to be either a shining example or a horrible warning. Making the right choices makes all the difference. ;)

I like getting up early. When have to work in the morning, it gives me time to get ready for my day and not rush.
I like having breakfast and making my lunch...kinda fool proof

Favorite Soap Opera 5 days a week... Treadmill 5 days a week...

I record All My Children every day. Then I use it for my distraction while I'm working out on my treadmill. As the drama unfolds and keeps my attention, I walk and/or jog. Using my remote to Fast Forward thru commercials means my workout lasts about 37-39 mins. I look forward to the workout.
