I am usually so tired that I don't get much done. I have chronic fatigue, chronic headaches, and chronic back pain. I have now decided that these are all excuses. Sure, I really have all these things, but I need to push past them. (not easily done, but I am going to get past these.) I usually stay in bed till 10- 11 am. ridicules! I have missed breakfast, and its almost lunch time! I think this makes me eat more each day cuz I think that "its ok to eat that because I didn't have breakfast". Not a good mentality! But here I am at 7am, ready for my work out and getting some much needed motivation from Spark people! I will eat a healthy breakfast and actually accomplish something today. I already feel better then most "mornings" (I use this term loosely here, lol)
I am more awake and aware of everything around me. I need to do this everyday I know to see real results, but if I feel this good just getting out of bed, how good am I going to feel in the long run? Great!! I need this for me and my daughters. Recently my 5 year old asked me
" mommy, why do you sleep so long?" It was then that I realized that 1. I was setting a bad example for her. and 2. that I wasn't spending much time with her because instead I was "too tired" and still in bed, or laying on the couch.
This has been my motivation to get up, work out and live life to its fullest!!!
