A year from now you're going to wish you had started today.

Monday, July 14, 2008

I saw this quote somewhere, and I feel like it haunts me! It's right at about a year from when I set up this page, and I did my usual half hearted attempt and then let it fade out. I need to get back on it and make a change, this is getting to be too much.

I was working at the track over the weekend and was talking to one of the guys in the pits. He seemed surprised that I knew about cars, and then commented "wow, that would be awesome to have a mom who was into cars". Ouch. Sort of a wake up call type comment. Nothing against moms out there, but when you're single and your only 'babies' are your cars and your dogs, it's sort of a sobering comment.

Anyway, going back to that original quote, I look at it, and think "what if I had just worked out even 2 times a week all year" and "what if I had even lost just 2 pounds per MONTH"... I'd practically be where I want to. As it is now, the way I look is really starting to bother me. I have about a month until I go back to teaching, and I'm setting myself the goal to be well established and "on track" by then.

    If it was easy to do, everybody would do it. =)

    Everyone is here to help each other succeed. Just a little at a time is all it takes. Pick one or two things that you can incorporate easily and gradually add more things in.

    Great job on seeking your motivation. You can make it happen! Good luck as you go forward!
