Be a mentor

If it's not enough doing it for yourself, do it for someone else! I want to be successful as a mentor to my little sister. This is to improve both of us!

Reminding Yourself of Why You're Doing This

We all mess up, but we can limit our mistakes if we remind ourselves of why we're doing this. I find it helpful to post my goals in places that I will see them constantly. For example, I have them set in a really pretty frame on my computer desk, I laminated them and use it as a bookmark, and I even have them written down on an index card that I carry in my wallet. It makes it a lot harder to spend money on junk food when I open my wallet to pay and see my goals staring me right back in the face.

My Cheerleader

I don't always want to make good food choices or exercise so it helps have to have someone to share my day with...the good and the bad. Someone who knows my dreams and goals and celebrates all my successes with great joy. A cheerleader. My daughter is my cheerleader. She is always up for a walk or activity and encourages me to reach my goals. My grandsons are also fantastic cheerleaders and excited to walk to the park or go for a bike ride. Hip Hip Hooray for CHEERLEADERS!

How To Keep Going

Choose a minimum of two Spark people each day to encourage. Many times when I've been down, it's the positive notes from my emoticon that kept me going. Be a good emoticon and encourage one another.
