So I made a promise to myself that I'd exercise first thing this morning. That was a mistake! I did NOT want to exercise so I didn't get outta bed until 1pm! I know, I'm crazy. So I can't make myself exercise in that way . Maybe if I just set a time. Then it doesn't matter when I get up because I have to exercise anyway! I still like the idea of doing it early though so that I don't have it looming over my head all day.

I so badly wanted to just come on here today I say I was sick, that I couldn't exercise or something. But its just an excuse (and a lie). And it doesn't really matter to anyone on SP whether I exercise or not. It only matters to me, to my body, to my health. So why make an excuse? I haven't got a single one! It's just hot air!

Well I did exercise today despite not wanting to. Today I watched some Biggest Loser on OnDemand while I exercised to help keep me motivated. I know they're working harder than me & if they can do it, I can do it!

Yesterday I tried adding a Calcium Magnesium supplement. I think it gave me heartburn though. I skipped taking one today but I'm going to try it again tomorrow. Hopefully I'm wrong & I was just having heartburn anyways. But I do sometimes have that problem when I take pills. They just feel like they lodge in my throat.

So I haven't had coffee for a couple days because I use way too much creamer. Today I tried something new. Instead of coffee with creamer, I had a cup of milk with a splash of coffee in it. I also added a tsp of agave but it was actually a little too sweet! But I did enjoy it. I didn't warm it up today but I think I'll try it warm tomorrow with only a 1/2 tsp of agave. I can still get that hint of coffee flavor that I like without all the bad stuff!

So I'm really sick of drinking all this water but I've stuck with it. I think my skin might br looking a little nicer. Not that my skin looked bad before but I don't mind improvement. I just can't wait to see the improvement in my belly!

So I know I was all gung-ho last week about starting this but now... ugh! I want to give up. But I'm not going to! Why? Because I don't want my work so far to be for nothing. I don't want to be fat anymore and the only way that'll happen is if I stick to this. I want to be able to say that I actually started something & completed it. I want my husband & family to feel proud standing next to me. I want to be comfortable in swim suit when summer comes. I want to be happy in a year that I did this now & don't have to start then. I'd like to think that I can have a before & after picture that might inspire someone else. (Guess I should take a before picture... yuck)

Anyway, these are some of the things that keep me motivated. Another thing I'm enjoying that keeps me motivated is my motivation board on pinterst. Feel free to check it out!

    I have been wanting to try the agava, other than being sweet does it taste okay? No bitterness or weird after taste? I have a food sensitivity to artificial sweeteners and would love to find something I could actually use to sweeten coffee and tea with!

    Keep it up and remember, this is a marathon, not a sprint. We may fall occasionally, but get right back up to get to the end.

    Gret blog! I am in exactly the same position as you. I am so unmotivated to do anything but I know I have to. I'm going to exercise this morning even though I was thinking of skipping it today.

    Well, good for you for exercising, even if you didn't do it first thing!

    Have you tried a chewable calcium supplement? I've switched to those and really like them.
