Fighting to keep motivated!

Sunday, November 24, 2013

I got the loan, and the new furnace and hot water heater are being installed on Monday and Tuesday. The bad news is that it is freezing today, with temps in the teens! My daughter is away at a dog show for the weekend, so the collies and I are holed up in my room with a space heater, trying to stay warm. With the cold weather, the last couple weeks were a challenge for us. Fortunately, we were able to shower at the gym and my mom's house. But I can't wait to have a warm house again! Getting up in the mornings was so hard, when it's this cold!

Since I promised myself I would get to the gym everyday, and put in extra time each day, I did drag myself to the gym yesterday. It was a battle, as it was snowing and I did not want to go out, but I was glad I went. So today, I will go again, and hopefully I will be rewarded for all this hard work on Wednesday when I weigh-in. Thursday is Thanksgiving, and my cousin and her family will be arriving. I haven't seen my cousin in 18 years, so I want to be as "skinny" as possible by then! Which is a good motivator!

Since it is as cold inside my house as it is outside, I might take the dogs for a long walk. They will appreciate the exercise, and getting everyone moving should help warm us up! And I will have the added exercise minutes, and calories burned, as a bonus!
