“Every day is a new battle. Every day we begin our day with specific short term goals, and every night we go to sleep having completed, or not completed that goal.” - Maria Kang
Do you have a goal? Have you even thought about it? I have. I keep a notebook with goals, thoughts, affirmations, my meal plans, measurements, etc. Along with my blog this is what keeps me going.
Which leads me to my "Powerful Reason Why". This is the major motivating factor that keeps me trying every day. I refuse to be overweight even one more year of my life. I am 50 years old and I am finished with being overweight and out of shape. I am doing this purely for myself. Yes, it's selfish, but this is my time. I have raised 4 kids by myself on a shoestring. Now that they are older and gone, I can finally do things for myself.
My secondary PRW is: I wanna look good nekkid! Who doesn't! This is a gift I want to give myself AND my husband. I want to run around the house in my little undies and not hide behind a towel or a robe or baggy t-shirt. This doesn't mean that I want to look PERFECT...I just want to look good in my own eyes. Perfection is not what I'm striving for here. Comfort in my own skin is the goal.
So Debbie...(she's on my sidebar--check out her blog) You asked us to post our PRW's today. This is mine. Since each person is unique, so will be their PRW's. I hope mine has inspired you even just a little bit! It's not hard to change...It's hard to START. Just make a decision to get up off the couch one day....take a walk, eat one less piece of junk, drink one less soda. Daily changes add up--you don't have to do it all in one day, or even one week....but please....just do it.
