Motivation

I find that if I split my workout. I usually go on Sparks early in the day. I post what I plan do do for exercise later that day. When it is posted I am bound by my Honor to do what I said I was going to.

Ready to quit? Don't give up do something - anything!

If you do nothing else, be sure to check in & spin the wheel every day.
I felt bad doing it . Why should I get points & perfect attendance when I'm not even entering my food, right? I'll tell you why, because it kept me coming back.
One of the biggest struggles we face in this journey is isolation. I've done it &I've heard so others say that when they are struggling, they avoid SP. When we're down, we avoid the very thing we know we need and spinning the wheel keeps us from going that route.

Rice as Coffee Grinder Cleaner

Mill a handful of grains in your grinder and the fine particles will absorb stale odors and clean out residual grounds and oil. Discard the rice and wipe clean.

Yoga

I notice such a huge difference when I am integrating my practice into my daily routine. It's helps me learn how to be in my body without judgement - and reduces me to a relaxed state my kids refer to as "jello". emoticon

Exercise then track it

Keeping my fitness tracker updated helps me stay motivated to exercise. I like this site and reading all the blogs, etc. I feel guilty if I pop on here without doing the work. I make sure to work out first, then get on and track my progress. Just seeing how much I've done makes me wanna do more.

Drink more water - Add Metro Mint water to plain water for flavor

I add Metro Mint water in peppermint, spearmint, lemon mint, orange mint, and even chocolate mint to my plain water to help me guzzle down the 8 glasses per day.

DVR as Motivation

If you have a designated workout area in your home, move your DVR into this area so that watching your recorded shows is an incentive for working out.

Costco camisole support

At Costco, I found a great camisole with stretchy support called "Fat Free Dressing" ---several colors and styles available for $15.99 each. I lost a lot of belly fat, but I have rolls of saggy skin around my waist and on my abdomen. This disguises it nicely without feeling like I can't breathe. It's very comfortable & seems to run true to size.

(I purchased a similar one online for $14.99 +shipping, but didn't like it as well as this one.)

Borrow a dog

I have always found motivating my self to get out everyday come rain or shine really hard, that was until I offered to look after my brother-in-laws' dog for 6 months whilst he is aboard. It's done wonders... and I can give it back after October . Its been a fantastic way to get me out every day.
