Sunday morning; looking for the "right" motivation for the coming week
Sunday, July 25, 2010
Good morning Sparklers! This morning is another early one as Prednisone and I define our relationship. On the other hand, I did get SO much done yesterday that I would be lamenting about this morning if I hadn't!
For today's post I want to see what does everyone use to fire up that motivation spirit for the coming week. I know Sunday is a traditional day of rest; but I want to be ready tomorrow morning with a warrior spirit! Give me your best motivational idea that gets YOU up and ready to fight another week!
The best motivational tool I have is how good I feel, I have made a promise to myself, to be healthy, so when I lay in bed in the morning and say I really don't want to get up and walk. I also remind myself how much better I feel since my journey began, and before I know it I'm up downing a bottle of water and out the door! 3782 days ago
Good Morning, For me motivation is telling myself that I need and want to be healthy. A little talk with myself and telling myself that I have worked hard to get these 5 lbs off since the beginning of July and I am not going to ruin it by eating junk food. I also tell myself that I know what the food tastes like so why eat it. If you still cannot talk yourself out of it, do something for 15 minutes like call a friend, read a magazine etc and usually the craving passes. Hope this was of some help to you. Good luck on the journey. Have a good weekend. 3782 days ago
My best tool is spark people in the morning, it makes me think, makes me pull up my affirmations tool I made, and makes me think positively about me and the world around me. Brings to mind what I want to think about that day and what I carry with me inside. What's the prednison for? I have to take a week of anti imflammatory for tooth but I'm amazed at how much pain I'd been in. I can move and bend and actually sleep past 2 a.m.? I never wanted to take anything but I'm afraid I'm going to have to look at something just to be able to continue moving comfortably and drop some of this weight. Thanks for sharing this morning. I like to check current posts just to see how folks are feeling. I believe every day is a new beginning! 3783 days ago
the best motivational push for me is that I AM WORTH IT. why spend money on junk food and just laying around when there is no one more special or unique than ourselves. also try this, when you are tempted to purchase junk walk around for a while because it is usually an impulse get something to drink and put that same amount in your pocket for something great for you. congrats on the 10 pounds :) 3783 days ago
