Needless to say...this has drained my gun-ho motivation a little. I still get some workouts in at home but for some reason I have a really hard time finding the ump to cross train if I'm not out running! (Anyone got a treadmill they want to mail to South Africa!)
So today I want to focus on what gives me motivation!
This woman here....she gives me motivation! Because you know what....I want to be proud of my body! I am a type of woman that I need to be healthy and in shape to feel proud. It isn't about how society sees me but how I feel about myself.
You can judge her all you want for how she put it out there but this mom gives me motivation! If she can do it, so can I! You're right...I can't afford a gym membership right now but there is MORE than enough resources out there to give me the tools at home to get going! If she can look that good....so can I!
The truth is...I want to feel good. And for me that is directly related to how I look. But it is also about the effort put in to achieve that look! I love the feeling after a good run. I love the soreness in my legs knowing I pushed them. I love the signals my body gives as if it is telling me thank you!
The photo above was taken one year after Lil Mister was born. I was WAY skinny and I don't want to be there again. This isn't about being skinny. I was more embarrassed of my body in this photo than I ever have been.
So today I want you to think about what motivates you! Is it a feeling? Is it a dream look? Is it an outfit you want to fit into? Is it a lifestyle you want? Share with me what motivates you! Please!
