Sometimes I can become completely frustrated with things in my life and I just sit thinking to myself of all the things I wish I had...
- I wish I was skinny.
- I wish I could run faster.
- I wish I had a lot of money.
I forget sometimes that we have the power to do and have whatever we want...
You are so conditioned to having that, 'wish thought' - you sometimes forget to move forward and believe in yourself and allowing yourself to just 'do'.
To become a walker, a run/walker to a runner, you need to have a great plan so that you can honestly fit these activities in your life. Once you have that plan made, then you have to find a plan that is at your level. So if you are a walker and want to be consistent or a walker who wants to be a runner, or a runner who just doesn't have a plan. You have to follow learning stages to get there and be successful. If you jump ahead, those stages are gone and your motivation is lost.

Believe in Yourself
"It's not something that happens overnight, it happens by implementing steps. Nothing will change in your life unless you keep going and believe in yourself every step of the way!"
What Keeps You Motivated?
- Believing in yourself.
- Knowing that you have a good plan for exercise and diet. Learn to Run
- Having a positive vision for looking better.
- Having a positive feeling for feeling better.
- Keeping a positive attitude when you are struggling.
- Progressing at your own pace.
- Monitoring plans on a regular basis so that you have room for change if needed.
- Keeping a journal or daily diary so you can monitor changes and keep track.
A nice little motivational tool is to get a picture of yourself when you where fit or a picture of someone who you would love to be as fit as and put it at the front of your journal, the fridge or your closet. This will remind you of why you have the goal - you are seeking.
Really, most of us run in the beginning not because we want to, but because we feel we need to. Eventually walkers will become runners and end up loving it! NOW they run because they want to.
