"If you want to do it, all you have to do is do it." - Ben Davis
"You have a choice. You can throw in the towel, or you can use it to wipe the sweat off of your face." - Gatorade ad
"If we always do what is easy, how will we ever improve??" - Me
"If you really want to do something, you'll find a way; if you don't, you'll find an excuse." - Unknown Author
"Either accept that you are making the choice to stay where you are, take responsibility for your choice and stop complaining . . . or . . . take the risk of creating your life exactly the way you want it." - The Success Principles
“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
No excuses; only results. What would that look like?
-I would set goals and challenges and bust my butt to meet them.
-I would eat nutritous foods all the time (or at least mostly).
-I would work out regularly and hard.
-I would find the consistency that seems to elude me.
-I would finally start losing these 50+ pounds that need to go.
What are my motivators?
-The sense of accomplishment and self worth that come from achieving something I worked so hard for.
-Knowing my children have a healthy, active example in their mother.
-To live a long, healthy, and full life because I've treated my body well and it will serve to do the same for me.

I think I have had a great start so far to August. I have before pics (need to post those), my weight (which is higher than I thought) and measurements. I seriously can't believe I have put on this weight, I felt ill when I checked it. I'm getting a good workout in tonight for sure, and of course fasted AM cardio tomorrow!!! My main goals today are to drink A LOT of water, avoid eating for at least a full hour after work and only eat the proper portions for dinner. I also still have to get in my crunches and push ups...... I may shoot for completing that on my lunch hour or kill two birds with one stone and do them when I am avoiding eating after work to keep me distracted :) How are things going for you? How was your weekend?
