Motivation Monday!

Motivation Monday

Happy Motivation Monday!  I don't know about you, but I'm motivated to have a much better week than last week.  Honestly, considering the craptastic-fest that last week was, I am pretty sure it's all up from here.  Trust me, there is no other option.  I think I used the word suck so many times last week that it has lost all meaning to me. 

So anyway, in continuation of my thankfulness recognition in November, for today, I'm grateful for progress.  A few months ago, I could barely run a few minutes, and I've gotten to the point where I can run eight minutes straight on the treadmill without stopping or getting out of breath.  For an asthmatic and non-runner, I'm pretty stoked about that.  And I'm just shy of twenty pounds lost in the month or so on the diet plan.  So I'm thankful for the motivation, for my husband for supporting me and for progress that I'm making every week.

So this week, the motivation is to keep going, keep pushing.  Sure, I have my days when I slip and go over the allowable exchanges for starches or fats, but just keep going on the eating healthy, watching portions, and exercising.  I've started doing 8 minute abs in the mornings despite the Weather Channel music and cheesy 80s style video.  But damn, it makes my abs hurt so that has to mean something, right? 

I am soooo close to my goal weight.  So close I can feel it.  So let's keep going! 

What's your motivation?  Join in on the fun!  Write a post about what motivation you need this week, link up to my blog in your post and leave a comment with your link, and I'll add you to the list! 

Oh, and before I end this blog, let me end with this...Daylight Savings Time?  And a baby?  Suck.  That's all I'll say about that. 


  1. Wow! That's awesome! 20 pounds in a month??! What diet are you doing? I'm 10 pounds away from my goal weight (I feel like I can taste it too!!) but I feel like this part goes soooo slow. I want fast! But I feel great so I will take it. :)

  2. Keep going Nain! You've worked so hard and are a total rockstar!
