I really need concrete goals to work for to get my motivation up. Now, I have a couple of new goals and am looking forward to doing my best to complete them.
One of my friends were supposed to get married in June. I was extra motivated to lose weight by her wedding, and she also kept me accountable. They amicably broke up and called off the wedding. Her life has changed drastically and has had more important things to worry about, so she's let working out slide, and so have I.
I will be meeting some of my hubby's extended family in June for his cousin's graduation. This will be my first time meeting them in-person. I'm Facebook friends with all of them, but I'm a little worried about what they'll think of me in-person. Why couldn't they have come to our wedding when I was thin and before the kids? They also live in California where it is much easier to get outside and get exercise versus nearly-constantly-raining Washington, where I live. Needless to say, they have a different lifestyle than we do.
One reason to get in shape for me that is more dear to my heart, though, is that I will become a leader for my daughter's Girl Scout troop in the fall. I do want to set a good and healthy example for them, as I will be a role model of sorts to the other girls, but more so to my daughter.
I am trying to break out of my comfort zone (which is my house) and going to the gym to try new classes and see what I will enjoy most right now and what I may enjoy more later. I am a little limited in this endeavor, though, as I am unemployed and my hubby works afternoons and nights.
