My Motivators

Friday, January 08, 2010

I'm happy to say that I have some motivators this year. Last year, I didn't have anything to look forward to, nothing to work hard to reach. In 2010, I have some events coming up that are keeping me going.

In February 2010, I'll be visiting some friends I haven't seen for a long time. This has pushed me to work hard and clock in some cardio almost every day. It's coming up so soon, and I know I won't look much different, but every little bit counts.

In June 2010, one of my dearest friends is getting married and I am one of her bridesmaids! (I've never been a bridesmaid before!) I want to look my best in that bridesmaid dress and I want to look fit when I visit some old friends. This is going to be such a happy occasion and I don't want to look like a chubster in the wedding photos. This event is my biggest motivator!

There are two other motivators that I am considering: a 5k in March and a 4-mile route for AIDS Walk 2010 in April. I've never done a 5k, so I would like some words of wisdom, advice, tips, etc. I think both of these events would help me stay focused through June.

What is motivating you through 2010?

    Hooray for great motivation! I think those are fabulous reasons! Especially the wedding, always want to be the hot bridesmaid ;)
I'm considering the 5K thing. I did just start the podrunner running program, works so far, I'm moving and I'm not injured and I have fun :)
My motivation: pure selfishness :) I want to lose weight for me, I want to look hot for me, I want to feel confident in my appearance.
