My young daughter has been my focus of motivation. I admire her energy and ability to flit and flirt around like a little Chickadee. I said to myself, I CAN be a Chickadee too. Instead of sitting all the time feeling sorry for myself, especially when I am not able to keep up with my little girl, I started to get moving. Started with housework, then daily walks, using stairs( I live on the seventh floor) and a membership at the YMCA where my boyfriend coaches me through strength/weight training.
lately, i have been thinking about the energy my daughter exhibits. I remember as a kid having a lot more energy than i do today. I tend to sit a lot. Watching tv, reading and spending time on the laptop. My motto now is "Move the body" Does not matter what I do as long as I am moving and not sitting. It is a fairly new motto for me, but it is helping. It is a first step.
