There's a much younger and skinnier me stuck with a magnet to the fridge. It's supposed to remind me of the weight loss goals I have set for myself. Sadly, I've reached a bit of a plateau and lost some motivation. The biggest problem - I LOVE FOOD!!! Diets are no fun because they are so routine and usually have weird food that I have no interest in eating. Or you have to take some sort of diet bar, shake or pill and that never seems to work out well. The weight just comes back when you stop eating/ taking them.
So with Lent starting this Wednesday, I realized it was the perfect time to set some new goals. First, being healthier with eating choices - not eating out and instead cooking at home. That in itself should help a lot. Second, it has become very apparent that I must start working out, as much as I have tried to avoid it.
I've been browsing Pinterest for some ideas to help motivate me to get going with a workout routine. That place is always full of great things and this time was no exception!
Rock My Run is one of my very favorite Pinterest finds! They upload new running playlists every week. Everything is upbeat and great for working out. Now if I could just use them for working out instead of singing in the shower!
I love this visual reminder of weight loss. Vases and marbles are definitely going on the shopping list!
Not just to tell people, but to know that I am not anymore.
I love this because I look like a hot mess after I workout!
Can I get as an audio track every few minutes on my playlist?
Absolutely REASON #1! I have to remind myself that, "Endorphins make you happy!" to quote Elle Woods.
What are some of your tips or motivation for helping lose weight?
I'll be linking up at my favorite parties this week!
