The Motivation Jar

Every time you are done a workout, write what was so great about it on a small piece of paper (e.g. "I felt strong when I ran today"). Then fold the paper and add it to your motivation jar. When you are feeling less motivated, you can reach in and read a few papers to get you pumped up to workout again.

Stickers. Everytime I work out I put a sticker on my calendar.

I put the calendar where others can see it. It helps me see how many times I have worked out in a week or month. Plus if there isn't a sticker by Wednesday, I will get exercising. So I can get that sticker.

Give yourself a Goodie

Every time you succeed in doing something you struggle with doing (EX. exercising, drinking daily quota of water, avoiding fattening foods) give yourself a Spark Goodie and send a message telling yourself how proud you are of your accomplishment.

Mini-Vision Board

Many people make a vision board/collage/goal-board or whatever you want to call it. You can put quotes and motivational images on it and hang it were you can see it everyday. Well, I created a "mini-vision board" I carry in my purse and look at any time of the day.

Doing the math

When my weight loss slows down and I start to get discouraged, I pull out my calculator. There are 3500 calories in a pound, so even a loss of a pound means a lot of calories burned or not eaten. It helps keep me on track.
