Why, oh why, am I doing this?

22. To never wonder what my motivations are

I have not posted a new blog for a few days because I am stuck. I have not been able to think of any new reasons. Oh, I still think about some of the reasons on the list, but I haven't been able to think of anything not already here. But you know, eventually, I want to stop adding to this list and start a new one. Instead of 30 reasons why I want to take control of my health, I want to one day create a list of 100 (or 1000!) reasons why I am glad I did take control of my health. Clearly, I am not there yet. I am still searching for my motivations. And one is so that I never have to go looking for them again.

To help SPARK the fire I need to get back on track, I plan to post a new reason for 30 days reminding me why I want to live healthier and lose weight.

22. To never wonder what my motivations are
21. Superficial rewards like SparkPoints and compliments
20. Breathing easier is better.
19. For energy to live the life I want.
18. Because it is only natural to judge a book by its cover.
17. Because I know the more successful I am, the more successful I will want to be. Success breeds success.
16. To live without pain without taking prescription ibuprofen several times each day.
15. To wake up easily.
14. To be the hero of my own story.
13. It feels so much better to be in control of my sugar addiction than to be controlled by it.
12. More small clothes fit in the washer/dryer than big clothes.
11. With more strength, greater flexibility, and less weight, I may find myself in less pain.
10. When I am outside more, I am sick less.
09. To reduce my rising cholesterol levels.
08. To be a positive influence on my diabetic husband.
07. I hate my double chin.
06. So I can easily reach my goal of finishing the 2014 Fight for Air Climb in under 40 minutes.
05. Regular exercise clears my head and evens my moods.
04. I feel more in control of my life when I take care of myself.
03. I liked it better when I fit in L shirts instead of XL.
02. When I exercise regularly, I have more energy.
01. When my face is thinner, I have a prettier smile.
