100 Day Challenge

I posted this on MotiveWeight 3 years ago and today I received a request for it so I thought it would be a good idea to repost it.

The 100 Day Challenge Count-Up card was created by Wayne Bartlet HERE is the Facebook link for it.

If It Doesn't Challenge You It Doesn't Change You

If it doesn’t challenge you it doesn’t change you – I’ve always been fascinated by how much harder a person works when they have a tough personal trainer pushing them to do their best. With this in mind, whenever I feel myself slacking during my workout and wanting to take the easy route, I pretend Jillian Michaels is my trainer. I literally imagine her shouting at me, telling me to “Work harder!…Do 5 more reps!…Faster, faster!…Keep going!”. This has the effect of instantly making me work harder. Try this little trick yourself (with a trainer of your choice) the next time you need extra motivation to increase the intensity of your workout…it works!

I Did is Much Stronger Than I Will

I recently found a way to make myself work out every day: First I decided to commit to working out every day by just starting very small. On day 1 I was only motivated to workout for 2 minutes (Yes, I know, sounds too little right?). But EVERY DAY thereafter I decided that my absolute minimum would be 2 minutes. No matter how demotivated I felt, I was determined to do my 2 minutes. This goal was so small that it was almost impossible not to do it. By day 3 or 4 I had doubled it to 4 minutes. One week later I felt very comfortable to do 15 minutes, because it was beginning to feel like a HABIT. If on any day I did not feel like working out I would make myself do my minimum of two minutes. By week 2, I was doing 30-45 minutes EVERY DAY. Now it's over a month since I started this new way of staying motivated and I now workout for 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes daily (on my elliptical, spin bike, plus YouTube workout videos).
Working out daily has now become my habit, it would seem as strange to me to not work out as it would to not brush my teeth. If you find yourself saying "I will do my workout" and then find yourself procrastinating, but you really want to say "I DID my workout today" consider starting off with a ridiculously short time of just two minutes, but make sure you do those two minutes EVERY DAY. Within a few weeks to a month you'll find this has become a habit that you'll enjoy and be proud of, which in turn will motivate you to want to exercise for even longer.

A Thousand Mile Journey Begins With A Single Step

Hi everyone, I'm back! I have not posted anything on here for months, I've been so busy with life's ups and downs that I was forced to put MotiveWeight Blogspot on the back burner for a while. But I am now back in full force, feeling great and raring to go.  I look forward to posting something on here regularly and continuing my journey to healthy weight loss and fitness with you all again. xxx Linda.

Throw Out The Scale

I must say this quote really had quite an impact on me. I have been thinking of not using the scale for quite some time and the words, "if you don't like what you see in the mirror what difference does it make what the scale says" was the catalyst that will make me stop using the scales (at least for a while). It's true, why does the number matter? We all want to look better, feel better and be healthier...there are far better and more effective ways to measure these things than the scales....I think I'll make the month of May, NO WEIGH MAY!

You Don't NEED Sugar In Your Tea and Coffee

The act of putting sugar in your tea and coffee is a deeply entrenched habit for many of us. Yet if you practice not adding sugar, you'll find that over time your cravings for it will disappear.
