Kick Start to Goals

Sunday, October 27, 2013

What does it take to get the motivational juices flowing? Sometimes all it takes is seeing someone and realizing: "That's what will happen to me unless I am pro-active about lifestyle choices." I saw someone, with the accompanying: "Do you mind if I sit down while I'm _________? I'm getting too winded to keep standing." That's what an extra 80 pounds will do to you. It was all over that person's body. Face, arms, body core, legs, just everywhere. I knew who was supposed to be in front of me. Even the voice was just not the same. So in that moment, I decided to kick myself - hard. And stop making the excuses. And I did something two days later to show that I meant business. And I did something the next day to gladly help with a task, even though I didn't know I would be doing it. I just said to myself: "More steps gets me closer to my goal."

I don't follow through well when my goals are publicly stated. But that doesn't mean I can't go public about the process and the impetus of the motivation to try again, in a different way.

Thanks, Spark Friends.
