Spaghetti Arms & Question of the Day

Today was arms and now they feel like spaghetti and I still have linguini legs from my leg workout earlier this week. I hope that means all of this is working. Two more days until the first weigh-in! Are you ready???

Tomorrow I'm getting up before the buttcrack of dawn to do my run. It sounds like I'm complaining but I'm really not, it just isn't that easy to make life changes and that is what I am doing. It is totally worth it. Honestly, I've been running for two weeks and I feel amazing. I really do have so much more energy for the day and I actually am looking forward to each gym workout. I hope that this high will continue until June and beyond. All I keep thinking is, "If you eat well, your kids will eat well. Live better for them." It's like my mantra right now. I want to be a better person. Not just for me, but for them. I don't want to be the fat mom. The one who wears baggy shirts and won't wear shorts in the summer. So there. That's my soapbox for the day. And I just want to thank everyone who is in this with me. It's going to be nice to see what happens come June. By the way, it's not too late to join us, (it's never too late!). You can start with us any time (there will be prizes every week!).

So here's the question. How do you maintain motivation? What inspires you?


  1. Girl, I hear ya! I don't want to be the fat mom (or fat wife) either. My older son goes to an affluent school where the moms have "fake" stuff. I can't compete with that. And I'm not into "fake". But I don't want to be the fat, dumpy mom either. I'm not into fashion, but I do my hair and makeup and try to look the best I can. That's motivation for me.
    My bigger motivation is to have a healthy family. I want the kids to know that we eat healthy, we exercise and take care of the environment so that we have better lives.

  2. waking up is inspiration enough. Seriously though, I look towards something that makes me happy, like vacation.
