how do you get motivated when you are not at computer to log?

I love my groups, sometimes when I am away from my computer I feel a little less support. And I don't have supportive friends and family.

It motivates me just thinking that I can come back here and share my thoughts and feelings on the day. I guess just looking forward to talking to my health conscious friends on PT.

Keep a fitness magazine with you that you can flip through on the train or when commericals come on TV.

Find someone on here at PT to be your buddy. I have someone close to me (not long distance) who I can call up when I feel blue and want to eat.

I second the fitness magazine idea. When I have a big stack, I cut them up and save good exercise routines and motivational pictures and slogans.

This may sound kind of obsessive, but I keep a food and exercise diary with me when I am traveling. Then, when I am back at the computor, I put it all in. Yes, It is sort of a waste of time,. but it helps me stay on top of my goals.

I like the idea of a food and exercise log. If you start one, maybe you can put some uplifting comments in the first few pages, to read, when you are feeling unsupported. I think I am going to start one, so I can keep track when I am away, as I I can only post early in the morning or late at night. So its hard to remember exactly what I have eaten and when. Also we are going on vacation next month, so this will help when I am on the road, because I won't have access to a computer for 10 days. (I will be going thru withdrawals)

keep a piece of paper in your back pocket

and log on that. post your total calories for the day/week when you get back to a computer. I'm sorry to hear that the people around you are not supportive. If they give you crap, tell them to kiss it. You're doing what youre doing to feel good, healthy and happy.

Personally, I subscribe to men's health and the jujitsu magazines. I find photos of hot guys (being healthy) far more motivational than Shape or Self's suggestions to eat more fruit and stretch.
