Motivated Monday!!!

I know, I know, I said I wouldn't be posting until next week. Then, I thought, WHY????? That is just continuing my Scarlet pattern of, "I'll start tomorrow." So with company and all, I am going to make some realistic goals for the week. These are baby steps, but none the less, steps toward a healthier life.

My worst fault right now is staying up too late. This complicates every other area of my life. I don't have discipline when I am tired. I am also unmotivated to exercise, play with the kids, cook dinner, have a positive attitude, etc.

The other area I want to work on is exercise. I know that when I start exercising, I will have more energy and feel much better about myself. Even before results start to show, I will just FEEL better, giving me more energy in all other areas.

Now, even as I read this, I am exhausted, desperately wanting a nap, and totally unmotivated. Despite this, I am committing to two realistic baby step goals.

1. Go to bed by 11pm (instead of 1or2am).

2. Exercise at least three times this week.

Okay, I said it!!! Are you willing to jump in with me? Do you want a healthier you? Link up!!! (First just leave a post, and if you know how to do that linky thing, please let me know! hehehe)

I am proud of you. I am still in that "Scarlet" pattern when it comes to loosing weight. It will come for me but to much stress in my life. BUT the reason I am commenting is the going to bed at 11pm. I am one who stays up to late then so do my littles. (blushing) but I read this blog over at raising arrows and WOW this really spoke to me, I hope you enjoy it too. http://www.raisingarrows.net/2010/08/difficult-words-discipline.html
