Motivation 1 on 1

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

Sometimes we all need some form of motivation. My motivation is not only the weight slowly dropping but the feeling I get when I've reached my goal. I set small personal goals on a daily basis.
My goal today is to "GET UP AND MOVE"
Even if it's to vacuum, wash dishes or run up and down the basement steps to do laundry...I need to move!
I have bad habits that can easily start reappearing in my daily being sitting in front of the computer for hours playing my favorite games and reading! If I can incorporate my bad habits into the good habits I'm attempting to do; then and only then will this weight loss journey start looking better for me. This blog is "APPROVED" by ME!!! emoticon

    Im with you there, there are days when I just want to work on the computer and watch DVD's all day long. I usually play my 30/60 game. If I do 30 minutes of a needed activity then I get 60 minutes to do whatever I want.

    So if I do things around the house for 30 minutes. Then I get to play on the computer for 60. I use the alarm clock on my cell phone to keep track.

    I like the motivation, and I understand that totally.

    You are not alone in this battle.

    Sounds like a great start to me!

    I like to play this little game with myself when I'm not feeling very motivated: First, I tell myself, "Do _(any activity)___ for 10 minutes, if I don't like it, I can stop." What usually winds up happening is that I get started and 10 minutes into it - no matter what it is - I am ready to either keep going or energized enough to move on to another activity.

    Good luck - and keep us posted!
