Today I can't get this song out of my head .. want to know why?? I weighed in this morning at my weight watchers meeting and I am 24 lb down!! Oh yeah baby .. momma's gonna be smokin' hot in no time ..
Okay now that I have that out of the way .. let's talk motivation. I know alot of us struggle with this no matter what our goals are but for the sake of this post let's stick to losing weight .. okay? Kay.
Where does motivation come from? Motivation is not something you can buy, win or steal .. (duh) .. but you can find it.
It is within all of us .. sometimes lying dormant! I often talk to my mom about losing weight .. she talks about motivation as if it is something that is going to magically appear, drop down out of the sky .. tie her shoelaces up and hold her hand while she goes around the block. No No No.
Motivation comes with action. Ever wonder why you feel so good after you have done something good for yourself? This can be anything from exercise, doing your nails, going to bed early, eating healthy .. the list is really endless.
You feel good physically because your body is thanking you. But it's more than that .. you feel good emotionally because you acted. Purposeful action has a snowball effect .. you feel good for treating yourself well .. and therefore you will want to do it again. You are motivated.
I'm not kidding you and I'm truly not trying to sound like some infomercial guru .. but this is the honest to God truth about tapping into your motivation and spurring you on to reach whatever goals you have. Come on girls! We can do it!
