Motivation. Still going strong

Friday, January 28, 2011

Day 30 now and still at it. I have been adding time and now do 30 minutes on work days and 2 30 or 40 min times on non work days. I told those I work with. I am becoming an inspiration to them. And they are becoming my support. I don't always want to do the workouts. But I just get up and do it first thing. It has started to become a habit now. I no longer dread it and have to make myself do it. I just get up and do it. This is transforming me. I have more of a spark for life. I have started trying to eat better. I have lost almost 10 lbs, or, as I like to think, a bag of cat litter. For me that is more motivating to think of losing than just fat. 4 more bags of cat litter would be really great.

I am really starting to enjoy this journey. One month ago I would not have said it could be done. Not by me anyway. I had become a true slug. The more I do, the more I want to do. It reallydoes become a habit, just like they say. By just getting up and doing it, I don't spend half the day agonizing over having to do it. That works for me. It's not a destination. It's a journey. Surprise! I am starting to like the journey. Happiness is following. I work with dr beckerman who wrote the flex diet. I use his tips. I am on the spark web site constantly. I find all these things help keep me motivated. I am not on a diet. I have begun a healthy way of life. And so the motivation to continue comes from all these sources. I now know I will one day be able to say, " I have not sat on the couch for 100 days!" emoticon
