The best way to keep my goal of being fit again is to keep it in the forefront of my mind. I already talked about putting motivational pictures on my phone, which i like most people look at a million times a day, and that is going great.
Now i am taking it a step further. I am setting up a reward system.
This is obviously to help me lose my initial weight that i have gained back and then some.
And to keep me going long after that.
I think this will be a great way to buy new fitness gear and other things i need to stay motivated to stay in shape.
Another thing i need to do but haven’t done yet is set up a motivation board. These seem tl be insanely helpful. Since i haven’t done it yet i pulled some examples from google to give to and idea. They can range from simple tl complex, whatever you need to motivate you.
What does your motivation board/wall look like?

I need to loose 25lbs. I am 215 and should be 190lbs. I found haveing a support team and workout Buddie Is the best for me. It’s hard to work out just alone like your other post it’s easy to make an excuse and talk your self out of it. But when you are held accountable it’s easier to stay motivated. Espically if the buddies are connected in a special way.
Love following your journey Ariana ! Maybe It will get me motivated….sigh, sign, sigh……You have great ideas !!!! and motivation !!!
Sharon here–one of the WV hiking club crew– I have meant to comment before and haven’t, but just want to cheer you on with your fitness goals. You go girl!!! Lots of good ideas here. Your inspirational sayings made me think of one I came across that motivates me. Last summer I started bike riding my hilly neighborhood. I didn’t think riding up hills was even possible until I meant an older couple who told me they “ride hills for fun!” So I started training and couldn’t believe how hard it was but also how good I felt to realize I could do it! Anyway, I came across a saying that made me laugh and was a great motivator for me. It’s simply,
“It’s a hill, get over it!”
It applies to so many things in life beyond just bike riding or running — I love it! 🙂
Incidentally I have to get back on my bike after making too many excuses over the winter months. But riding was truly the easiest, most fun way of getting fit I’ve ever found. I love how much you can see and the distance you can travel on a bike!
Anyway best wishes to you Ariana, I enjoy your posts. 🙂
Love the idea of the motivational board. What are those things on the string that you change the weight with? I think I need one of those!
Tina i think they are clothes pins
