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.
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.
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 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.
