by my wonderful daughter in law, who has reached her goal doing SparkPeople and pretty much chewed me out when I told her I am too old and fat to do a 5k. She believes I can do a lot of things I feel I can't do. I am now starting my training for the 5k on April 16. Sounds like a small goal, but massive for me. Love that girl!

My Mom, a 58yrs old a cancer survivor and healthier now than when I was a child. She called today to see if I would sponsor her for the local Relay for Life.

I was motivated today by me, myself & I. I gave myself a pep talk to keep going & it worked!

I started losing weight when I stopped stuffing my face and started facing my stuff. ???

I was motivated today by reading other people's blogs. I feel the same way that others do. It makes me feel good to know that I am not alone. I'm not the only person in the world trying to eat healthy and lose weight. I'm not the only person in the world trying to make my life better. It just feels really good to know that there is a ton of other people out here in this big old world that are struggling with the same issues and same problems that I have.

a comment someone left on one of my blogs which reminded me that things don't have to be all or nothing. There is a middle ground. I generally put too much pressure on myself and end up crashing and burning.

The Human Resource department at the hospital where I work has been sponsoring a motivating challenge every month. This month we are doing the "Chill-Out Challenge" dealing with stress. We accumulate points and the outcome is $20/month rebate on our health insurance. ($240/year possible) Check out the requirements on my SparkPage. We've done things like "Chug-a-Jug" where we logged drinking 64 oz. of water/day. We logged walking to "Walk-Around the World in 31 days", etc. It is a requirement to have the Health assessment by MMO and Pap/Mammogram to be eligible for the rebate. We need to have a certain number of points in a 6 month period to get the rebate. Almost everyone is taking advantage of the programs...AND we are getting healthier! emoticon
