No Turning Back!

Thursday, October 24, 2013

I had a major breakthrough motivation-wise yesterday and it's really showing today. I couldn't be more excited and enthused to hop into action. (Literally!) Quite honestly, that's what was really lacking for me. I have been watching my water intake and portions, but I wasn't too apt on exercising. Yesterday I found a great way to keep myself motivated.

And this time I'm going to see that motivation everyday. And since I'm always on my computer, this is the first thing I see when I get on it:

It's part of a song that I absolutely love and now it's part of my daily encouragement!

I must say I really love the new homepage. It's really helping me want to get more SparkPoints. It's not all that important a thing to go after, but it adds fun to the site and I really like it. I see it as a rewards program.

As for my exercise, it's mostly constrained (due to my lack of a job and inability to drive) to exercising at home. I dance for 10-15 minutes (unless it's Just Dance), go on the Elliptical Trainer for 5-10 minutes, and incorporate crunches, running in place, and whatever else comes to my mind. It sounds pretty dull, but it's fun and that's what's important. I can't go outside and walk because it's been rainy/snowy the last few days.

That might seem like an excuse for most people, but when you have lived in Michigan most of your life, you know better.

I will not be looking back at this point. When I go back to this post a few months from now, I will be proud of myself for having kept at it. No turning back, I've made up my mind. I'm giving all of my life THIS TIME.

    Awww, I love it! You go girl!
Yup, that's the most important, doing what you love to do and what is fun.
I'm also constrained to working out at home. It's pretty cold out there here in NYC.

    The SP videos are a great option on indoor exercise days. Keep going forward toward your goals and don't ever give up. Consistency = success.
