I have lost 2 pounds already. I know that seems to be very little to many people but someone that has been suffering from Hypothyriod I thought I never see that in my life time. It just makes me want to smile and be smiling all day.
What is keeping me motivated at this moment?
Well that is something that is hard to say but I have to say seeing my scale telling me I lost wieght and that by changing my eating habbits and including exercises to my daily routine makes a huge difference and this is what's keeping me motivated and plus my cat eying me everytime I put on a workout video. I think he thinks I am playing a game of sort but he stays at my side as I work away those nasty calories and the fat that I so hated seeing on my body. There I finally said it and I am sure many people will probably agree with me. It's not cool have all this extra wieght especially if you had for most of your life. You know I can remember a time when I was skinny as a still and then one day like waking up from a very bad dream I had all this wieght.
My mother at the time not knowing that I was a suffer of hypo disease would get upset that I was not doing anything. I would go on diets and I saying DIETS!!! I tried them all and they resulted in nothing. It was just pure frustation that I could not get rid of the weight and I hated myself becuase I could never understand how anyone could be around me if I had all this wieght or while a guy would even look at me. I don't blame my mother for not knowing it was not until years latter close to my last year of high school that we discovered that I had Hypothyriod. My mother spent many years worried about my wieght but it has taken me time to realize that wieght means nothing but it is your health that means everything.
Why I am saying that?
It takes know and caring about your health to push to do better for yourself and your body. Once you have this idea or this motivation/drive then comes the want to do everything in your power to care about wieght. It seems kinda messed up but when you have a mother that is a health nut then you know maybe it was my lack of caring at the time but now that I am old enough to see that I want a healthier lifestye and my facination with health prodocuts is what moved me to finally look at my health becuase of that I was able to be motived to care about my wieght and plus I wanted to conquer by Thyriod. I am not saying that happens to everybody this is what just happened to me. On top of caring for my health it took me a long time to realize that people will like me for me.
I always get told by close friends and family that I have a strange affect on people, because I act so myself I make people so comfortable...I can't hide myself from people. I don't like it becuase I feel dishonest. I know this may sound silly or strange but it took me to care about myself and my health to see that people care about me as a person then my looks.
Anyways, on another note I baught a new workout dvd. I love it! It is by Leslie Sansone and it's called Just Walk (3 mega miles, Burn & Firm at the same with time-saving mega miles). I really enjoyed this workout so far especially since now it is the colder months in canada and it makes it hard to motivate yourself to take a walk outside since it is so freezing cold. Although we have not seen anything of snow. Apparently there is a storm coming through but it not much of a snow storm. I find this workout to really work a sweet and it is just great to be able to walk a few miles just in my living room. Highly reccomend it!
Anyways off to eat some dinner. Chili tonight!! YUM!!
My next blog I would really like to share some great recipe ideas when you get those crazy cravings and a little more on motivation.
SO TELL ME WHAT GETS YOU MOTIVATED TO DO A WORK OUT?
