Celebrity Trainer, Harley Pasternak's Daily Words....

Just One More
If you're using your dumbbells properly, you should be able to just finish the maximum number of reps before hitting the point of exhaustion. Sometimes this happens a little bit early, and you find yourself struggling to complete the last motion. But don't put down the weights too soon, because that struggle is as much mental as it is physical. As long as you're not in pain, challenge yourself to power through that last repetition and finish the set. Not only will you be looking better in no time, but you'll feel a great sense of accomplishment too!

Pat Yourself on the Back
Stamina builds stamina — you will be able to do more exercise with more energy if you keep to your fitness plan. So what's going to get you to push for that last rep when all you want to do is collapse on the couch? Work out a reward system for each time you finish that final move, the one that really has you straining. Try not to use food as your incentive, though — pick something that's small but enough to motivate you. How about putting aside a coin each time you stick to your goals? Before you know it, you'll have a sizable sum you can use to buy yourself a real treat.
