Finding motivation

Thursday, March 07, 2013

"People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing, that's why we recommend it daily" .-- Zig Ziglar

Thanks to all who have posted comments and encouragement on my blogs/page! I have struggled lately with my motivation to workout and to avoid those pitfalls of candy and treats at work. I think I am getting back on track, though, after making it to the Y yesterday morning and a quick trip to the grocery last night. I bought lots of fresh veggies and fruit.

This morning, I walked at the Y before/after my weigh-in for the Transformation Nation Triad (TNT) that our local YMCAs are putting on. Up 2 pounds, but that is ok. After meeting with dd and the school counselor to work on her schedule for next year (graduating as a junior), I joined my class at the Y and walked the track with the ones who weren't swimming. Then I walked with a colleague after school (after meeting with a parent).

Did really well with my food today as well.
- banana, almonds, and pistachios for breakfast
- salad, grilled chicken, and grapes for lunch
- apple, baby carrots, and almond butter for snack
- salad, bbq, and slaw for dinner
- clementine for snack
* I did dig into the peanut butter jar before running dd to soccer practice

    Great meal plan! Looks like a satisfying day of food.

I find reading the "maintainers" blogs helpful for motivation. It reminds me that this is a choice for a healthy life, not just a temporary fix for weight loss before swimsuit season. I also have a pinterest board I use for inspiration.

Keep up the great work! We're all rooting for you!!!
