Get Healthy

Staying motivated

For me, getting healthy is all about finding things that help me stay motivated. I wish just looking better were enough, but I do so much negative self talk that purely superficial reasons go right our the window. So now that I am feeling semi-motivated I want to try and ride that wave while I have the opportunity.

I find that sometimes it's something as silly as a new water bottle or bright sneakers that really get me amped to test them out. Other things like packing my lunch, keeping an activity/food log, and tracking progress with my iPhone and FitBit keep morale high when I am on a health kick. But at the end of the day you have to find out what works for you. Right now, I am not comfortable in a big gym so home workouts and classes are my activity of choice. I think realizing this was huge in setting myself up for success. 

Whatever you do to get healthy and stay motivated, just make sure it works for YOU. Health trends come and go, but that's how so many of us go down that ugly yo-yo diet/exercise hole. I'd love to know how you stay motivated. Anything that really keeps you going?
