New Motivation

Thursday, October 22, 2009

This morning, I read a blog from someone who is alot like me. They talked about the littlest thing sending them into a tailspin. While reading the blog, I realized that I was looking at a mirror of the old me. And I realized how much I have grown in the last few months. I have allowed everything to come before my motivation to get moving. There was always some excuse not to exercise, and at the time I thought it was a really good one. Then, like yesterday, I felt bored and instead of doing something, I would take a nap, or just sit back and watch soap operas.
That doesn't ork anymore. Yesterday, I was home with my 2 year old who was taking a nap, and I was sooo bored. I tried everything, including eating a little too much on my snack. I finally got up and said forget the soaps, I got outside and pulled weeds out of the rose garden and started on other yard work until the baby got up. Just a few weeks ago, my day would have been shot because I would have eaten everything in sight until I got tired enough to take a nap.
Anyway, I have figured out that for me, all it takes is a little reminder of why I get up early every morning and start moving.
