Fat developer seeks motivation...

I am a 29-year-old software engineer. I started my diet about a year ago weighing in at 230 pounds. I successfully lost 10 pounds and maintained the weight loss until about a month ago. My wife, Amanda (SparkPage: AmandaJean9871) and I have started walking 1-3 miles a day, which has helped me shed an additional 22 pounds (putting me at 197 pounds) when I started SparkPeople.

With the days getting shorter, and the snow starting to fly (at least around here it is), it is getting harder and harder to find motivation to keep exercising. I do most of my fitness outdoors - running. I am also finding I do not want to drink as much water in this colder weather.
Despite this, I am determined to continue on my journey.
What are you doing to overcome your barriers to fitness? How are you keeping yourself motivated during this holiday season?
Wishing you all the best on your fitness journey this week.
Katrina

Happy Monday Sparkfriend.

I hope your weekend went well. If not, today is a new day. Commit to make you a priority today. What does that look like for you for today? Exericse? A manicure? Doing something that you are afraid to do to prove to yourself you can do it?

Best luck on your new week. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Make the most of it.

Today is Day 2 of successes for me. I am focused. I am on track. I want to push myself towards my goal. No more waiting for it to come to me.

I have eaten clean both days. I have gotten out and burned calories each day.

Tomorrow is a fresh start for me. I need to decide if I am going to push myself to day 3, or if I am going to sit back on my laurels and wait for success to come to me.

I know what I am going to try to decide tomorrow. What about you? What are you going to decide to do today? Wait for success, or go out and chase it down?

Well, another week has passed. All we can do about it now is reflect. Did you eat well? Did you get in as much exercise as you wanted? Just look back to see if there is anything you can do differently this week. Last week is past. There is nothing that can be done about it now.

Now is the time to think about your goals. Where do you want to be tomorrow? How can you get there from where you are now?

TODAY is the day for ACTION. It is time to take some of those small steps to reach those goals. Is it get in 30 minutes more exercise? Drink more water? More Fruits or vegetables? Or maybe you want to find a new job. What are you going to do TODAY - NOW - to reach that goal?

You can do this. You are worth this. I can't wait to hear about your successes.
