You are helping my motivation!

This blog has been such a great influence in helping me lose weight so far because of all of you!

I love getting comments with well wishes or helpful advice or hearing about your experiences. And I love reading your blogs and hearing about what you are doing and how it's going and all that.

Lately I have been lacking motivation. I just don't feel like eating well. I am stressed and tend to mindless eat. My routine got shaken up a bit with the move, and I haven't gotten back into the way I was being (read: healthy and diligent).

But reading your blogs these days is helping me! Some of you have been in a rut too and feeling the same lack of motivation, but some of you are going full steam ahead or just pulling yourself out of the slump. And that makes me so happy to hear and motivates me to get my butt in gear!

I think being motivated is a choice, just like being happy is. It's not something that a fairy comes down and waves a wand over your head and gives you. It's something you have to create yourself.

And the biggest thing with reading your blogs is how happy those of you are who are pushing yourself and are in the game. I used to be like that, so I know how great it feels and I want that back!

So thank you all just for being there!

Oh darn - and I always thought the kick out of bed at 5 am was my little fairy dust of motivation (ha, ha). Just seeing your ticker is motivation for me - I want to hit that 75 and hoping to do so this year, if not, then I will keep going!!!

As always - Staying MOtivated MO

One huge help for me, when it comes to motivation, is allowing myself to be tired at the end of the work day. "It's okay to be tired" is indeed my mantra when I come home, and it helps me kick myself once again and do that extra workout.
