Colette's Blog

July 16, 2015

We all get in those funks where we want to just curl up and do absolutely nothing. A few too many treats at summer BBQs and the hot weather can take a toll on your motivation.

Renew your commitment to a healthy lifestyle by making a contract with yourself. I have vowed to do everything in my power to keep myself feeling healthy and happy. I've shared this commitment with those closest to me -- Ozzy, Kelly, Jack and my assistant - to keep me accountable. When I'm feeling low on motivation, I ask my family to help encourage me to get that workout in and to stay away from the carbs.

Rewarding yourself works as well. Make fitness goals and give yourself little treats when you meet them. Get a mani, buy yourself a new outfit or go to a movie. When you have your eye on a prize, the time on the treadmill goes by much faster.

What do you do to get going on your plan again?

All My Love,

Mrs. O
