What motivates you? - Page 3
I want to remain flexible and feel more power in my being from being in shape.
I need to buy new clothes and I want a size 8 instead of a size 10 or 12.
Bumping this thread because it's awesome!!!
I've been lacking motivation lately and this thread has really made me feel like I want to get out there and do something. Anything. Just move!!! I've been eating well and dropped a few pounds and I feel pretty good about that, but it doesn't really mean much if I'm doing next to no physical activity! So for anyone else out there needing a boost to get your booty moving, here's a great thread. :)
Thanks for bumping this!! I needed the motivation!
I did a fast 3 weeks ago and have been eating really healthy and working out trying to get back into shape....then.... my in-laws came to visit! And all the things I DON'T buy came flooding into the house; cake, brownies, ice cream, chocolate, pizza ahhh! and chips and there goes what was going to be my waistline!!!!! LOL
I have been toeing size 8-10 for a year now. Now that I'm not breastfeeding it is SO hard to loose weight. Thanks for the motivation................. I need to find a workout I enjoy.
I am just coming out of a deep depression(think it may have in part been caused by my synthroid dosage being off:-P), and a few weeks ago I just felt so tired of being tired and depressed and fat around the middle. I woke up one Sunday morning and decided to take my daughters mp3 player and go for a run. Well, I ran/walked/ran for about an hour and a half, and it was wonderful and awful. Mostly i could feel it wake me up and remind me that I am still alive and there is still fire in me. I was pretending I was my own coach, like I was running in front of me yelling 'keep going, go a little farther, you can do it! Wheres the fire...' that sort of thing. So my motivation is staying awake. I haven't been running every day, as it hurts my shins:-P But I have been jogging off and on, and trying to make a point of at walking whenever I get some free time(maybe 4-5 times a week) and I do the sunsalutation every morning. I've also been watching what I eat. I know that NOW is the time to make changes. I dont want to wait. I feel ok about my body right now, but I weigh more than I ever have. I'd like to lose, maybe 20 pounds to start. I'm trying to make little changes that I can stick to and build on. Music motivates me. I love walking/running/biking while listening to music. Suddenly im not exercising anymore, im performing in my own music video, lol!
