Motivation and Me.

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

From SparkCoach:

Spend a few minutes writing about the reasons behind your fitness and weight-loss goals. What is your true motivation? What do you hope to achieve or experience after reaching your goal?

The truth? I do not want to deal with cancer. I'm so sick of hearing about someone I love dealing with it. I lost 3 of my grandparents to various forms (skin, stomach, breast) and my mother to a form of ovarian cancer in 2011. Needless to say, I am scared out of my mind in regards to my own health. The #1 contributing factor to my mother's cancer was weight and overall health.


Most common excuses for not working out? By Kelly!

1. It's 5 am and I JUST WANT TO SLEEP.

2. It's 9 pm and it's DARK.

3. Screw it, I'm tired.

4. Okay, I'll go watch TV with you, dear.

We have busy lives and it sucks some days because it totally gives me every excuse in the book. On any given day, I normally don't get home before 9 pm and I'm up at 6 am to get ready for the day again. I need to stop letting this rule my life.

So earlier this week, my attitude and energy levels were through the roof. I was happy, motivated and thrilled to be alive. Today? Not so much so. My thought process today is "Screw it." At least now I can pinpoint WHY I'm crabby. My other half is going with some friends to an Iron Man marathon - starting at 1 pm today, they're going to the local IMAX theater and watching Iron Man 1 & 2, Avengers, and then Iron Man 3 at 9 pm.


But I cannot. I have to stay and man the office, and then I have clients tonight. Part of me (Princess Me) is stomping my feet, telling me to cancel the clients and go anyways. The responsible part says that I am trying to build my business and it is in my best interest to just suck it up and deal.

Princess Me wants to know when I get to do the fun things too and was NOT at all happy when my other half said "Just think, in 10 years, we'll have both offices fully staffed with other people and we can take an afternoon off."

I don't want to wait TEN YEARS TO GO SEE A DAMNED MOVIE - shouts Princess Me.

But this is good for me to stop sulking and suck it up. I'm taking time off for Memorial Day week and then in July, I am NOT going to feel guilty about going to Michigan to see my bestie for four days. No boys needed!

Princess Me is still sulking, but Business Owner Me wins again. Now to find that peaceful balance and happy attitude.


On the right track!

I realized last night that while sometimes I don't have much time at all, I can still squeeze in 15 minutes jogging on the treadmill and feel good. WOOT!


Long time, no talkie.

It's been a long time since I've updated anything here. I finally graduated last year and I've been really busy working and building my business. At my heaviest, I was 287.6 lbs and had NO energy - I basically lived on coffee.

I started clean eating March 1st and in the last 45 days, have lost 22.5 lbs. This makes me REALLY excited. Then my best friend signed up for her first 5K.. and I mulled it over for a week. This morning, I signed up for my first 5k walk/run. YAY! *scared*

    Wow, that is very exciting on all fronts. It is a busy time for you, but it sounds like you are headed in the right direction. Congrats on your weight loss so far, and go for that 5k, you can do it.
