What keeps me going?

  I have been reflecting about what keeps me motivated. Here are my top 3 things that keep me going:

3. Constantly setting new fitness goals. Whether it is increasing reps, or working out for 100 days in a row. Setting goals often allows me to constantly keep improving. A big goal I have for 2016 is to complete a 10km race. 

2. Remember where I was back in July of 2015. I was 35 lbs and 20 inches bigger. I was active in that I played sports but I didn’t take care of myself. I used food as my only means of reducing stress. I feel healthier, stronger and even more flexible. I need to regain control when I slip, because it can come back so quickly. 

  
And my number one thing that keeps me motivated:

1. My family. I want to be active with my husband and son. I don’t ever want my weight to be a barrier.  Last winter I went skating and I could only do a few laps because my feet couldn’t handle my weight on the skates. Now we skate nearly every Saturday night. We go on many hikes and even did a family run this fall. 

  

If these don’t motivate you, then I am sure this will:

  
Until next time…
