Whew, that's a strong word huh?
So, where do you find your motivation?
...To exercise? Be healthy? Raise a healthy family?
Or maybe you are lacking motivation right now?
Living an unhealthy lifestyle and then finding the healthier ME is my motivation! I feel so much better when I exercise, sweat, and get in "the zone"! My life used to be SO blah...whatever that means. Filled with fatty foods, no exercise and carbs, carbs and more carbs! I spread this lifestyle to my family because my boys see my husband and I exercise, and it makes them want to live healthy too! You have no idea the joy I get from watching my four year old and one year old right there beside us doing our ab workouts :) PRECIOUS!
**Teaching P.E. and Health, I learned of the healthy habits or lack there of, with our children. It was often scary. We would be in our nutrition unit, learning about the food pyramid and portions and the kids were engaged like they were being taught algebra...it was all so foreign to them. I refuse to let my children grow up the way that I did...with no self-esteem, and one of the "fat kids". I choose to break the cycle, so I guess you can say my motivation is FOR MY CHILDREN too!
So, what does MOTIVATION mean to you??!
Where do you find it?
My running journey is going STRONG! woohooo! Today was about 4.5 miles and it felt good. Although some parts were rough against the wind and pushing the two boys, I made it through and did NOT quit! Yayyyy!
