I keep reading all of your motivational tweets, emails, and comments on my blog and facebook; and I must say thank you to everyone. Thank you for keeping me going really you have no idea how much it helps me.
Some days it seems easy to throw in the towel. Maybe we have a favorite food we miss or a special occasion to go to,and we want to cheat or stray off plan. I know for me the temptation is never far away working around my down fall chocolate all day can be tough. Also there are days when I just do not want to go run or workout. Yes I love running, yes I love racing, yes I love my muscles. But the work to get there, sometimes I feel like its a second job! After working all day coming home knowing you have to put in at least 45 minutes of hard sweat before you can relax and cuddle your toddler can be daunting at times.
It is a juggling act, one I have not quite figured out totally yet, but I do know a few things. One of the main things is I do this for me. I make time to workout because it makes me feel better. I eat healthier because it makes me physically feel better and lose weight. And I blog for me, to keep me accountable, share my story, learn from others and hopefully inspire just one person who like me does not have it all figured out just yet. And this week especially so many of you have reached out to me, shared your stories, and reminded me just why I do this.
So I have all of you to thank, for pushing me through, for keeping me going, and for being so kind!
