Start with just 10 minutes

We all have our moments when we do not feel like exercising. When I have those moments I always say, "just do 10 minutes and that's all". By time the 10 minutes are up, I am motivated to continue. When you are done, congratulate yourself for a job well done.

Do this first

Raising our flag, honoring those who keep us free and honoring our dead with prayers and flowers on their graves. To me that's what Memorial Day is all about. If we do that first before we go out to the lake or the park, we'll feel better about ourselves....at least I will.

Don't let it get 'cha down!

Whenever I feel like giving up and begin thinking that I will never reach my goal I just have to remember that good things sometimes takes time and lots (and lots) of patience. Eventually I will see that number on the scale and I will feel good knowing I did that by and for myself.

Help yourself by helping others

The more you support others with help, advice and attention, the more you reinforce positive attitudes and behaviours in yourself. Be a friend. To them.. and you!

The Ultimate Motivation

Your drive to succeed doesn't have to be the motivation to end all motivation. You just need a little something to push you along.

Don't Set Limits for Yourself

Stop telling yourself what you can't do and instead focus on the things you can do and are doing. You will be amazed at the things you will accomplish when you tell yourself "I can do this" and then keep moving forward towards your goals!!!

HAPPY

Today I finished cutting the grass and it took 3 1/2 hours to cut the back yard. I have about 4 to 5 acres to cut and I like doing it. After I pulled weeds and then came in and vacuum the bedroom. I decided it was time to stop. Made me feel alive. Enjoy the outside nice weather. God's creation's.
