I have never never been a morning person. I'm the one who could sleep until 10 am on a Saturday. I have always wanted to quit this habit and start getting up earlier to workout before going to work. I tried a few days but I didn't make 2 days in a row. Now I have been up early 2 weeks in a row and the benefits are huge!! I have to say going with a buddy has helped my motivation to go. Either she is picking me up at 5:50 am or I'm picking her up. We are relying on each other to get there. I cannot believe how wonderful I feel, PMS symptoms have completely disappeared, how I feel more energized, sleep better at night, even my eating habits have improved!! The "need" to do this is greater than the "want". The benefits are just amazing. Our plan is to go early in the morning Monday to Friday. Weekends will include housecleaning, gardening, and probably taking my daughter to the gym. It's not sitting on the couch all day that's for sure!!

Motivation is what keeps everyone going. But what do you do when you have lost it? I have tried all sorts of things to remotivate myself - reading daily motivational sayings, reading health related materials, pinned fitness and health articles and ideas, tried setting the alarm to get up early, take the time to create healthy meals, tried exercising with a buddy (unfortunately they have the same feelings as me so that's not too motivating). All I can do is keep at it! Keep trying! And push myself!! Here's to getting motivated!!

Well, I let my career overtake my health. I have aloud this to happen. I did not take care of myself - lack of sleep, not eating healthy and preparing proper meals ahead of time, drinking too much coffee and not enough water, not getting to the gym on a regular basis, lack of energy. Now because of this I have become run-down and sick with a cold. I thought for sure it was strep, but thank goodness it isn't. I tend to get strep at least twice during the school year. So it has not become that bad but it is bad enough. Ugh!!
I NEED, no, I WANT to get back on track!!
My biggest problem??? I'm a procrastinator! I put things off until they pile up so high that I don't know where to begin. For exercising I will say in my head 'I'll do it later' or ' I will get up at 6am tomorrow'. Well, enough is enough! Time to put the excuses to the back of my head and JUST DO IT!!!

Again, I have aloud my work life take over from my healthy habits! Ugh! It is so hard to balance. Why do I feel so guilty when I take time for myself? I know how good I feel after I take the time for myself. I feel clear headed and relaxed, which is so beneficial to me. I know it makes me a better mom, wife, and teacher. Yet, I put it aside for everyone and everything else. This needs to end!
I have been trying more to be active for myself this past week than the week before. I am planning to keep at it. I have to! It is for my own well-being. And if I don't take care of myself, than who will??
