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.

Be kind

Remember that Rome was not built in a day and neither will our ideal bodies. As we journey towards our goals we need to remember to be kind to ourselves. Every choice is just a little step closer to our achievement.

Let it Go

Don't worry about what other people will think of your path. Take your own way to get there, and flaunt it with pride. If some arbitrary rule doesn't work for you, ignore it (within reason).

Stop Berating Yourself

Remember that weight loss is a JOURNEY and no one is perfect. You WILL make mistakes. You WILL sometimes overeat. You WILL not work out. some days when you know you "should." That is all normal. And understandable. Don't berate yourself. Tell yourself, "OK I slipped. I won't do it again." Then mean it. That doesn't mean you starve and work out like a Marine. It means you return to your plan. When I believed these truths, I began to get healthy. And I started to learn how to stay that way!

Motivational Quote by Punky Brewster

This quote recently appeared in "Women's World" magazine and I found it very motivating:

"Punky Power is a lot of things: It's believing in myself; it's never giving up; it's faith that things are going to turn out okay. But most of all, it's knowing that I can do anything I want if I really try."
