Motivation Monday!

Motivation Monday 

It's another Motivation Monday!  I didn't get any participants last week so let's change that this week and get as much participation as possible!  I mean...we all need motivation every now and then, right?  It's super easy to participate...just write a post about something for which you need motivation, link up to this blog and leave a link to your post in a comment.  And I'll add you to the list!

My motivation this week continues to be weight loss and getting into shape.  I'll admit that last week I did eat a little too much of the Easter candy...but I have vowed this week to steer clear from that as much as possible.  I've even specially requested of my parents that they not do the normal thing with our family this year and not give T and me candy.  Because we don't need it.  Especially me, since I'm stuck at home, and if it's there...I will eat it.  And that's bad.  I'm also doing a better job of exercising more often.  It's nice because the first few workouts were pretty tough...having not done any physical activity in forever and recovering from surgery.  But I am proud to say this weekend that I managed to do 45 minutes on the elliptical.  (Go me!)  I try to walk every day, at least with Aubrey with me, if not by myself when T is around.  It's going to be a process but I'll get there.  Despite the fact I haven't gained as much weight with the baby, I still need to get rid of that baby pooch and also about 10 pounds I had put on before the baby. 

I'm wanting to start doing ab workouts to help with the baby pooch, but I'm only seven weeks out of surgery, still a little tender in that area, so I'm thinking that may need to wait.  And that's hard for me to admit because I tend to push myself a lot and am incredibly stubborn when it comes to things like that. 

So that's my motivation for the week...what's yours?  Write your post and link up! 


  1. Good motivation! You'll get there. Remember you had major surgery so don't push the ab work outs. Walking will help reduce some of that baby pouch.

    I finally did it. I did a Motivational Monday (I can't get a nice looking link to work, like it does for my signature):

    Have a good week.

  2. I need some motivation. Maybe I'll try writing a motivational Monday post soon. It might not actually be posted on a Monday... I abs-olutely (pun sort of intended) hate abs exercises but lately I've been trying them with the exercise ball and for some reason that makes it seem a little better. It's probably psychological but I'll take what I can get.
