Motivation Monday

Motivation Monday

Happy Motivation Monday, everyone!  Before I start with my goals for the week, let me just explain how this whole thing works.  Motivation can encompass anything:  motivation to work out, eat healthy, stress out less, do better at work or home, or read a good book.  The possibilities are endless!  To participate, just write a post about what is motivating you this week, use the cute little button you see to your right of the screen, and link up using the linlky tool below.  The link will stay open until this weekend, so you have plenty of time if you need to further ado, here's mine...

Last week I kind of slipped on the whole motivation with the working out thing.  The alarm would go off at 5:15 a.m., and I'd hit snooze once, then twice, and then I'd be all "oh, I'll workout this afternoon..."  And while I would go walk on my treadmill later in the evening, but it wasn't anywhere as good as what I could do at the gym.  No weight lifting, no elliptical, nothing.  I did manage to get in one workout with the personal trainer but the lack of strength training during the week kind of kicked my butt.

And I kind of slipped on the eating well thing, too.  Having a few business lunches out and finding the office candy stash in my new office...well...not good.  But the good news is I won't be doing that this week.  Why?  Oh because it had to be thrown out.  Why?  Oh because we have a mouse.  And apparently the mouse got into the bag and ate chocolate from it.  And I didn't find this out until after I had a few tiny bags of Skittles.  That was enough to keep me from the candy or that cabinet in general. 

So this week...I'm getting up when that alarm goes off, and I'm eating healthy.  I have a mini marathon to train for, after all, and that weight isn't going to come off by itself! 

So that's what's motivating me this week...what's motivating you? 


  1. My only motivation this week is to stay awake. I am exhausted!!

  2. Yeeeeeah I need some motivation in general. I was so unhappy with my body yesterday and I KNOW that I need to get started with my exercising, which has STILL not happened even though we're already almost in February. Sigh...

    In other words, I totally know where you're coming from.

  3. Eew to the mouse in the candy!

    Good luck! Waking up that early to go to the gym would be very difficult, but also super rewarding! I have faith in you :)

    Hey I was going to link up but the linky tool is nowhere to be found! Which may just be because I'm on an ancient computer at work...

  4. Never mind! It just showed up :-) I think it was just taking forever to load
