What I am feeding myself on this journey is not just about the physical. It is also about the mental. From humor to inspiration to practical advice and suggestions, I am on a constant diet of motivation. The good news is, motivation doesn’t cost points, calories, carbs or macros. No matter what you are counting, motivation can be a part of your daily intake.
My favorite Zig Ziglar quote is, “They say motivation doesn’t last, but neither does bathing, that’s why they recommend it daily.” This constant daily diet of motivation is what it takes to counteract all of the things in our environment that can pull us away from our goals. From those damn TV commercials for the big burgers or the amazing ice cream to the people who “kindly” bring cupcakes and donuts to work, challenges surround us.
My daily motivation comes from many sources: Instagram, Weight Watchers connect, My WW buddy/bestie, friends, and family, podcasts, and Facebook. Any time I want to turn to food, I have been turning to technology or someone in my life I trust. Motivation and support is just a click away in many cases. Use all of your resources! I have set up a pinterest board called “Wisdom” for the motivating quotes I like – check it out!
How do you bathe daily in motivation?
