Wowsa, what motivation!

Talk about a pep talk - today's Healthy Reflections email really got me thinking about why I keep putting off eating healthier and doing the other things I need to do to lose weight.
--- for example, drinking more water!
The whole email sounded like something a coach would say to motivate his team, like basketball coach Pat Riley's quote that "There are only two options regarding commitment. You're either IN or you're OUT. There's no such thing as life in-between."
--- sort of like you can't be a little bit pregnant!
It is kind of funny to think of meeting goals with a "weak handshake and they'll soon be waving you goodbye", but it's a good metaphor. I often treat my goals as if they are strangers I meet on the street. I might cordially say hi to them in passing, but then don't think about them again in my day-to-day life.
I liked the closing statement: "Make every day count and live purposefully, live energetically, live completely. "
Now THAT'S motivating!
go Go GO!
