how do you stay motivated?


Im having some problems with my resolutions. Quiting smoking is alot harder then I thought, even with the patch and I want to stop using any type of drug but found myself snorting codine this afternoon which really put a damper on my day. Tonight I did resist pot,codine and cocain so im proud of myself for that but I wish I had the motivation to stay on track. How do you people do it? Do you get down on yourself if you slip up?

Never beat yourself up. You are human.

What keeps me motivated? I gave my word to people. That means a tremendous amount to me. I also want to lead by example. I never tell anyone what to do. They just see me do it. That is also important to me. I also know in the long run I'll be better for sticking to this.

Deep down though, I am proud of myslef for being disciplined and tough. I'm tough on myself but I'm realistic. I have reached goals in the past and the payoff is awesome. Focus on the payoff and the small steps it takes to get there.

As goofy as it sounds, I want to keep my word to the group on this board. You all are my peers and I need to hold up my end.

Hang tough. You can do it. I also use TONS of music. All day, every day.

that's about the best answer you're gonna get.




If I fail math, there goes my chance at a good job and a happy life full of hard work.

I complain about wanting to get in shape and never follow through. Only thing I have healthy in my life is my edge..................

I do 150 sit-ups a day for a week, then just stop. Its depressing........

I'm still stuck at the same weight. I managed to lose 30 pounds, but I haven't been able to lose any more. For health reasons I really need to drop another 50.

Ironically, getting discouraged sometimes is my best motivator. If I don't like the way things are coming along, it just pushes to me to get up and train like a motherfucker.

My biggest problem is my inability to exercise. I can't even walk for more than 10 minutes before my back starts throbbing.

Many things keep me going back to the gym For one it has been part of my lifestyle as long as I can remember. I am diabetic as well so I have no choice, but to stay in good shape. I am also an athlete and need to me in top physical condition to stay on my game.

Also I have never and never will take my abeled body for granted. There are people out there with all sorts of mental and physical problems that will inhibit them in so many daily things. I am of able mind and body and see that as a blessing and want to use my body to all its capacity.

I just set up my weight bench tonight. This will get me motivated to start lifting again. I'll hit the weights tomorrow before I goto work.
