HAVE A BUDDY

It is so much easier to follow through on what you want to do when you have someone who will check up on you and that you can check up on to see how you are doing. It is so nice to have someone who will cheer you on and give you the motivation you need to continue.

Set short-term goals and blog them.

Set a small number of short-term goals and write a blog about them. This exercise is great for improving accountability.

Begin the DAY with Exercise

I start my day with exercise. I find it gives me more energy throughout the day and that I am more alert and productive after I have exercised. Then, I do not have to fight with myself at the end of the day to go work out when I am tired and ready to relax. I feel positive because I exercised.

Helping Others

I do volunteer work in the community with several organizations. I get satisfaction when those individuals start talking to me because of me giving my time.

"no" Spark Streaks

Start a "no" streak, like no chocolate or no cookies or no candy. Take it one day at a time. Don't say I will NEVER eat a chocolate again. Just say, I am trying to see how long I can go without it. I can eat one if I want to, I simply choose not to today.
