How do you stay motivated and find inspiration to stick with your program?
I don't deny myself anything, just eat special treats occasionally
My biggest secret is that it really doesn't take motivation. As long as you do it, it really doesn't matter if you gripe or complain or display a bad attitude. I told my daughter I was too old and it wouldn't work. She asked me to try. I did. Once I had a little success, I was hooked. It worked.
I join Spark Teams that have challenges that I can join and fully participate in like the Biggest Loser Challenge or Curves T-shirt workout. Gives me accountability and motivation!
Repeated procrastinated quitting. Some cover up the treadmill readings but I promise myself to quit in 10 seconds if I choose to. Once I reach my goal of 10 seconds I say thank God! Then I say I am going to quit in just 10 more seconds this can go on and on for hours or miles. Increase gradually.
I work out at home so I put my gym clothes on in the morning so I have no excuse not to workout.
Take at least 10 minutes a day to sit quietly and listen. Not having thoughts rushing through your head for at least 10 minutes a day will help you deal with stress much easier!
That has alot of different meanings to this word. For me my secret is keep walking/jogging and keep a tally of all steps that you've done today.
Whenever I go walking and see the same people walking, It motivates me because I want them to think when they see me...she's still hanging in there and looks like shes losing weight. that's what I think when I see them still hanging in there.
When I don't feel like working out, I try to think about other SP members who have lost alot of weight. I imagine them working out at that precise moment and then I decide to 'join' them. Works for me everytime.
