Motivate week 1! I want it bad!

Saturday, November 26, 2011

O.k. I know I'm getting this in late.. It's been a busy few days...

I have to admit that I have been feeling much more motivated lately, then I was a couple of months ago. I'm very excited for this challenge! I need this extra motivation to get through this holiday season!

I joined SP at the beginning of this year. emoticon It has been just what I needed in my life. I had some awesome success already! I've also had some snags along the way... but I realize this is a learning experience, and a lifelong journey. I had a small Spark break from Mid August, to around Halloween, but I'm back, and MOTIVATED to get this ball rolling again! I do have to give a shout out to RYDERB. She has been an awesome Sparkfriend! When I was M.I.A. she really stuck by me, and didn't give up. She emailed me, an kindly told me about this challenge coming up, and thought that it was just what I needed. (She was right! It was!)

I have several reasons to be motivated about getting this weight off, and to be a happy, and healthy woman. First I have 2 beautiful girls that drive me everyday to be the best person I can be. I am motivated to get healthy for my health, and heart. I'm motivated to not make myself old before my time. I'm motivated to start running again! (I was running 4 miles every other day until I sprained my ankle badly, and I miss it!) I am also motivated to get this ball rolling again now, because usually I wait until it's almost spring to try to start getting healthy. (which hasn't seem to work for me) This time I want to be in the FULL swing of things before the snow even melts!I need to get serious again now, to help get me past my usual huddles. This new year is finally going to be my year! I will no longer be the FAT GIRL! I am DONE! DONE DONE DONE!! I can't wait.
Thanks for reading!

    Great motivation! I like the part about not making yourself "old before my time". I'm trying to get back some of the energy I had when I was younger.

    You can DO this!!! I will be there right along with you. I want to really work hard this winter so when Spring comes and the layers come off I will be thinner and more toned. Let's do this!!
