to a great team! Boy does your post sound familiar. My piece of advice is the same. Take it slow and change one thing at a time. That way the changes will stick and it won't seem like you're taking on too much at one time. If it's hard for you to get up and go to the gym, after you get the kids off to school stop and take 30 mins. and do a video or dance to your favorite music for 10 mins. each day until you work yourself up to wanting to get up and go to that gym. The more you do those 10 mins each day you will feel better and it will help to motivate you to want to do more. Start with something small for example giving up sodas for 30 days; if you start will something small and see positive results believe me it will give a boost to your will power.
Hello and welcome to the team, Just focus on small steps and keep adding as you feel you are getting them down. That is going to be the best way to make changes in the right direction and not feel so overwhelmed. :) You can do this. Just remember slow and steady wins the race and focus on today only not what happened yesterday or is on the agenda for tomarrow.
The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

I am 34 years old and a mother of three. I have come to this website off and on but haven't really done anything with it. I am so frustrated with myself. I cannot find the motivation to get my booty up off this chair and go exercise. I joined a gym, along with my husband, (so that should motivate me) last weekend, but have been there ONE time. I set my alarm every morning to go at 5:30 so I can have an hour there and still have enough time to get the kids ready for school. But I hit snooze until 7am. I need a fire lit under me!! Is there a board for motivation? I need motivation and a support system. Thanks!!
