Create a To-Do List

Make a to-do list every day of everything you need to do (e.g. shopping, cooking, cleaning etc.). Try to be as detailed as possible to prevent cheating. Your day is not done until everything on your list is complete (if it's not done, then there has to be a really good reason and not "I'm too tired"). It's a great way to push through lethargy and organise your day (and feel proud of yourself for making it through the list). Don't forget to put your workout on your list.

Read even the Healthy Food ingredient lists, SNEAKY Food industry!

Be sure to read all packaged food labels. The food industry is sneaky with the chemicals and word replacements. Soy and sugar replacements seem to be in everything!

Even the healthiest “packaged” foods can shock you. READ every label. The food industry can be SNEAKY!!

Vision Board & GOALS

I "vision collaged" my back of the door mirror, this way I "SEE" it all the time!!! Everyday, sometimes several times a day! Foods, Exercises, Physically fit bodies, places I want to go and things I want to do!! Anything that is something to strive for or look forward to I put it on the edge of that mirror. SO when I do that one last check in the mirror before I sweep out the door I know what I want in LIFE!!! EVerything I want to live for is there: Prayer, Familiy, Friends.Healthy Lifestyle!

Off the couch, on the floor..

Determined to stay off the couch in the evening after a long day and exercise, I found if I sit on the floor I end up doing all my Calisthenics, yoga poses and stretching, while hanging with hubby and enjoying our tv show.

Goal Setting for motivation, planning, actions & SUCCESS!

Set Monthly goals in Micro, Mini, Medium & Major. Blog these at the end of the month for the following month then adjust "other goals" for tracking, accountability & celebrating!! If you are a list person, this works!! Spark Streaks can be set to support each months goals. Micro & Mini goals tend to be the building blocks to medium/major goals. This way you don't get over whelmed or miss steps. You set up your training and prep. My monthly blogs are helping me!! Check them out!

Just walk or 10 minutes...

Seriously this works every time. If I just don't feel like hitting the GYM I tell myself, "I'm just going to walk or do 10 minutes". Toss on your work out clothes and shoes & go out the door. I hit the gym and I am always excited that I pull through and do an amazing workout/run. I am NEVER beating myself up for going only if I don't at all!

Review and Tweak the Plan~

Whenever i'm getting off track or even when i'm feeling a little bored I look over my old blogs. Almost all of them give me a more positive perspective or solutions to what I want to tweak or change. Should I not feel more empowered or motivated to a new direction then I hit some of my SP friends blogs.

1/2 that portion...

Half that portion! I half the portion of whatever i'm about to eat. If it can't be halved without wasting part then I don't eat it Example: Sandwich you can half & save for later...cookie you would have to share if a person is available or throw the half away if you have no one to share it with. IF I would have to waste it then I don't eat it. Planning!
Don’t be a gingerbread woman, be a ROCKSTAR!

Fast breakfast that tastes like dessert!

Fast -- 1/2c chocolate soy milk (light, pre measured and frozen is best), blend with half a banana, 1tsp honey, couple drops of vanilla and a bit of flax seed. --- yummo!

Where does motivation come from?

Motivation comes from within yourself.
Think about the surge you had for the new year... You felt like you had a new beginning and internally wanted to start on the right foot. The problem with those surges is that they are temporary. But you now know for a fact that YOU and only YOU can motivate yourself!

When you are optimist, positive, self confident and proud of yourself, it's easy to motivate yourself. And the motivation you feel will be constant and always there.

Know that you can do it

Don't be afraid to push yourself. You can do more than you think you can and you shouldn't let fear of failure or embarrassment hold you back. To quote the title of an old self help book: feel the fear and do it anyway!

Savor the rushing surge of motivation!

Finishing what I start helps me stay on track. I love the rushing surge of motivation I feel just as I approach the end of my workout... it's that feeling of accomplishment and inspiration all rolled into one. emoticon emoticon

Brag about your accomplishments

Tell the world how awesome you are, even if it's for something small. Post it in your status, shout it out in your blog. Give yourself the praise you deserve! Toot your own horn! This will help you focus on the positives rather than focusing on the work remaining to be done.
