MO-tivation is going to allow me to be better in so many ways!!!
I vow to be MO-tivated each and everyday!!!
Since the beginning of January I have been dealing with my emotional state. As the weeks have progressed, it is getting much better. I know what the key was, but I just needed to turn it so that I can continue to walk through more doors of success!! TURN THAT KEY - I NEED to - I just NEED to. As warm as that bed is in the mornings, I NEED to get up. Get Dressed. Even sometimes sleeping in my workout clothes (thanks Mer for the idea) has helped. Having a walking buddy has helped. (I know we can't all have workout buddies, but by reaching out and trying to work out a plan with my neighbor this aspect has helped me so much). Even when I was not able to make it out this morning, I still took the time to put in 30 minutes of aerobics. My MO-tivation is back!!
Here are the keys to my MO-tivation Success to make Two Thousand and Twelve SWELL...........
MO-tivated to Exercise each day (even if I can only do 20 minutes)
MO-tivated to Pack my lunch each day - which means, I need to plan. Take the time to go grocery shop on a regular basis (don't let it go too long). Even if I don't have time, make the time - pick up the good for you things that will get you to the next full shopping day opportunity. Make a quick list that only allows you to shop the outside walls of the grocery store (most grocery stores carry the "good" stuff on the 4 outside walls - check it out, you can avoid the processed food section if you shop that way).
MO-tivated to Drink - Drink - Drink my water each day!!! I am having a race with myself each week. I mark the water bottle in the office and see how far it progressing each day (even if there are others drinking out of it, they are not doing as much as me, so that mark each day is a thrill that I actually made my goal).
MO-tivated to cut out the nighttime snacking. Always will be a struggle for me...working on it more and more each week.
MO-tivated to Go to bed when Aman does!! This is a truly truly hard thing to do, since I have a tendency to go to bed after 11 pm. I will need to work on this. At first I am going to do about 2 nights a week (Sunday to Thursday) and maybe work up to the full 5. Which totally means I have to plan. Working at my desk for 20 - 30 minutes a night while Aman is busy with his own stuff, will give me the time to catch up on my own large things to do, so that there is no rush in the future. I can be a procrastinator, so staying on task with this will be a challenge.
MO-tivated to Menu plan on Sunday nights. Even making meals ahead of time. Cooking meat on Sunday, or making that crock pot dinner a few days before will help with my hectic schedule. That way I have a plan and Aman can see what is the plan and he can help with the meals when we get home.
What is your key to success? Determination? Goals? Your own MO-tivation?
