Motivation and commitment or lack of......

Monday, July 16, 2007

So, I just came to a realization because of a post from Gaye. I have made no progress on this challenge and if I don't get my butt in gear I'm going to be the same at the end that I was when we started. Gaye only has 7.5 lbs left to meet her goal for this challenge, I still have 20 lbs to go. It's time to re-commit and make this happen.

I sent Gary a text today about a coach tote and matching purse that I want - I need a new tote for my laptop, so I thought that would be good. His first question was "have you met your goal?" and my answer was no (not even close) so he said "no coach". He's tough and he's going to try to keep me on track.

I have many reasons to stay on track and things that I'm trying to work towards, I just need to keep visualize them and keep thinking about them so I don't lose focus.

This last weekend I didn't do that bad food-wise, but I really need to do something about working out. I need to exercise when I'm home. I need to either spend the money on exercise equipment or spend the money on a gym and personal trainer. That is the decision that needs to be made and then I need to do it. No more excuses.

This week's plan is to get my butt into the fitness room and exercise for at least an hour Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. On Friday I need to get into the garage and get all my exercise stuff and bring it in, while I'm at it, I should also go through some of the boxes and bring in the rest of the kitchen stuff. I guess I will need to do that early in the morning before it gets too hot.

I need to figure out a way to keep my goals, rewards, and motivations in focus. I'm going to be trying on some wedding dresses in August, so hopefully that will help with my motivation. What I really need to do is get the front room of the house all set up like I had my workout room at the QC house. I just hate that it's the front room so it doesn't have a door or anything. But o'well - this is important so who cares what people think.
