I'm always looking for ways to motivate myself to loose weight. But a bigger problem is to remember what I've lost, and what I've accomplished. So I started looking for some motivation.
First, I found this great idea to motivate workouts: Money. Let's be honest, that is a great way to motivate just about anyone. Putting a $1 in the jar for everytime you work out, I think is a great idea. For me, I'd be a $1 for every point of activities I earn on WW. I use their activity tracer, so I'm going to use that to help me start tracking money for my work out jar.
The other thing I found that I really liked was using marbles (or pennies, or whatever else I have lying around the house that is small and in large amounts lying around the house) to keep track of pounds to go and track pounds that you've lost. I think that this was a great idea because no matter how frustrated I get on my weight loss journey, this would always remind me of what I've already accomplished.
For a workout idea this week, I found myself trying to find arm workouts that don't require weights right now. I don't have any, so I'm starting out slowly without weights until I can afford them.
So here is to loosing it... Slowly, but surely! Cana Elene
