My motivation comes from the recent realization that getting fit doesn't have to be all or nothing....even if I don't have time or energy to work out for a full hour, now I realize it will still help to take a 20 minute walk. On the nutrition side, one slip-up doesn't mean that I should just quit eating healthy, just be better next time. That attitude has helped me be so much more consistent.

Strong desire to get stronger for most part, followed by desire to look better.

My family. We push each other to always do our best to stay healthy. That includes exercise and trying to make good food choices.

My family. I want to be around to enjoy them as long as possible. My dream come true would be to hold my great-great grandbabies...all of them.

I'm in a unmotivated stage right now. I haven't figured out yet how to get out.

I've gained a little weight and I am trying to get my momentum back. I must find something now to help.

I've 'dropped the ball' and started over so many times and I well know that feeling when you start over...again. This time with a great go at it I won't stop, made way to much progress and even if I just stay where I'm at for a while, I'm not sliding back!

I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

I got tired of starting over and working back to where I was, so I have stopped giving up!

WHEN I am well motivated and for any amount of time, I am invariably maintaining a tight routine for my physical conditioning program.

However, when I get off of my routine, I start slipping on the activities and start back-slidding regarding my nutritional intake and things tend to fall apart rapidly and severely!

Picking myself back-up and getting set back into the saddle takes so much more effort, than it would have to just keep myself seated and plodding along . . .

I have pictures of me at my goal weight I'd like to be on my page and my kids are also my inspiration, I want to be healthy for them and myself.

I look at pictures from when I ran a half marathon, and tell myself that if I could do that then, i can certainly stay on top of things now!

Everything about you resonates happiness, now I won't settle for less.
Give me all the peace and joy in your mind.

I stay motivated by reminding myself everyday where I want to be and why. I enjoy SP and SparkCoach and the teams I belong to and chat with daily.
