Determined to take back their body, determined to fight for their goals, determined to feel good about themselves. I find that look inspiring. It reminds me why I got started in the first place. The way I used to feel about my body and how long it took me to get to the point where I said ENOUGH. Enough feeling sorry for myself, enough making flimsy excuses, enough hating this body I have to walk around in all day everyday. It's time to feel good. The problem most people have is staying motivated. Waking up each day with determination. Sure there are bad days, or weeks, but consistency over long periods of time brings success and resluts. When habit becomes life style, working out and eating clean no longer feel like a chore, and all the other pieces begin falling into place.
I stay motivated by setting short term achievable goals for myself, hence, constantly feeling rewarded. I always have a weekly meal and exercise plan. I never leave my house for the day unprepared for what I will fuel my body with that day. I work in a "Faturday" on the weekend, and I got involved socially with other fit for life minded women.
How do you stay motivated??

In other news- I need a new book to read. I think I've had my fill of the romantic novels for awhile- I only read four over the holiday break. That's not embarrassing or anything. Any suggestions?!
Brrrr it's cold up in here!
