I’m still feeling a little flat so this motivational post is much needed! I think I’m struggling with motivation because work has come to an end, I have to sign-on tomorrow 😦
But, I need to pull myself together and this is how I’m going to do it. I’m going to write a list of :
5 reasons I want to achieve my goal of being a healthy weight.
1. I want more energy! When I eat well I have more energy and when I eat badly I want to sleep more. Doesn’t take a genius 🙂
2. I want to be able to wear shorts and not worry about cellulite. I fear I will always have cellulite so I’m not sure if this is a valid reason.
3. To feel physically strong and fit. I like being able to run up the stairs and not be winded, or to run for a train and actually catch it!
4.To live as long as possible. Well I don’t exactly want to live forever but I’d like a good quality of life while I am alive. I don’t want to spend the last 30 years of my life with diabetes.
5. Look Better. Although I think I look pretty good now 🙂
I was going to write 10 but I kind of got stuck! Are you currently at your happy/healthy weight? What was your number 1 reason for wanting to get there? Or have you always been there?
So tomorrow I have an appointment at the job centre, then I’m meeting my friend Shell at the pool for a swim. I still think I’m going to cancel my membership. The reason for this is: I pay £30 a month for the gym and pool which I can’t afford, the weather is nice so I should try and get outside and do workouts, the gym is boring me right now and if I go on benefits I’m entitled to free swims on off-peak times. What do you think? Are you a member of a gym? Do you ever get fed up of gym work-outs?
