My Motivations

Monday, April 21, 2008

Ahhhh... procrastination! I set up the challenge and asked for a blog and here I am doing it at the VERY last minute! Sheesh, this week has been crazy! Okay, here it is: what keeps me motivated? There are several things that do keep me going on working toward a healthier ME -- first off, I get such unlimited motivation by logging on to SP, posting in the forums and running the two BEST teams (sorry, just my opinion emoticon). I love the energy and motivation off of everyone here on SP. I get a lot of motivation when I look at my kids and at the lifestyles of many kids today -- I don't want to see my kids unhealthy with unhealthy lifesyles. I want my kids to grow up with a healthy attitude about themselves and food. I truly believe that they will get that from the example that I choose to set. I want to set a good one for them! I get HUGE amounts of motivaiton from going to the Y. I have made some fun friends there and I really enjoy going daily. I love exercise and what it brings to my life. I truly can't imagine things without exercise. Things just feel wrong when I don't incorporate it into my life. Finally, I get motivation from looking at my "before" pictures. I saw some tonight and I have no desire to go back there. I don't want to say that I was unhappy, because that is not true -- I have always been pretty happy with me, but I truly like what I see in the mirror and I feel that is a result of the lifestyle changes that I have made to my environment and to ME!

    Your comment on motivations was said with such passion that it will keep me motivated for awhile. It is very clear that you want the best for you and your family. Oops, I just looked at the time..... guess, I won't get a motivation blog written this week. Where does the time go? Thanks for all the time you give to the Wyoming Team. Vicki
