Motivation

I had kenpo again tonight and the final thought was motivation.

What motivates you to continue?
What motivates you to work hard?

The instructor had a great saying... "There are not lazy people. They are unmotivated or sick."

Hmmm....

I need to push my motivation.

I have been wearing the ActiveLink from Weight Watchers for a week now which means that it's finally recording my activity points. Yay, right? Hell no!! Now I'm bummed. It's telling me that I'm a slacker.

It states that I need to start being more consistent with my activity throughout the entire day. I have no problem getting motivated to go to class. There's accountability. Just like the weigh-ins. I need to start making myself accountable for working out. I need to stop plopping my butt on the couch and get moving.

There are soo many projects in the house that need to be completed AND the kids love to go and do stuff. That means that no more unmotivated mommy. I'm going to use this new tool to jumpstart my movement. In about 5 weeks I need to go back to school and start getting my students motivated to more physically active.

I need to be a role model!! I'm also the Committee Chair for my kids schools' Health Fair... and an assistant track coach, oh and a certified strength and conditioning coach AND Athletic Trainer. Hmmm.... seems I don't have any excuses left, right?

Ok, bed now... working out tomorrow :)

You are doing GREAT, Tee! No one is perfect and no on gets it exactly right all the time... it's just knowing that if we fall, we get back up and try again.

"Just keep moving forward" is what I tell myself.... even if I just moved back a step. :)

Keep up the good work!
