Just another Manic Monday

Monday, July 11, 2011

I am getting more involved on the Sparkpeople website and I love the motivation it gives me. i am a project manager who works from home so it gets lonely sometimes.
I've been on sparkpeople for about 3 years but just started using all the tools available. I also joined a running group that also keeps me motivated. I've lost almost 10 pounds since I started seriously tracking my food and exercising since March.
My 25th high school reunion is in early October so I am using that as a key motivator for now. I know there is a bigger reason I am doing this be healthier.
There is a more shallow part of me that just wants to look really good at the reunion. I want to see some of my old friends but also really self conscious about the fact that I am still single after all these years. People think it is so strange when you have never been married at my age. It's not that I don't want to get married but I haven't found the right one yet. I've also thought it is better to be by myself than with someone who is not right for me.

Thanks for all the motivation from all the people on sparkpeople. After reading several awesome blogs, you have inspired me to write a blog. It does help to clear your mind and get out your feelings for the day.

    There is nothing like a reunion or other big event to inspire someone. My event is a wedding, my youngest daughter is getting married in October.

    Looks like you are doing a great job. Keep it up. emoticon

    I don't think you're shallow for wanting to look great! It is important to take pride in yourself and your presentation, in moderation. Good luck!
