What is your biggest motivator?
My primary motivator is my health. I do not want to die younger than I should because of my own mistakes! Period.
Next comes the mirror- I just want to look in the mirror one day and like everything I see. No muffin top. No cellulite. Just strong. Fit. Not perfect, but my perfect.
My last motivator- my events and races. Don’t get me wrong… I stay on track and keep a workout schedule to train and do better at every race. I want nothing less than a PR every time I start a race, but I do races to get me out the door every day and move. I want to move everyday for my health, for my kids to have a mom as long as possible, to grow old with my husband and to look the very best I can.
Can you see your progress in the mirror?
Abso-fricken-lutely! But I am quick to judge myself. My flaws. My battle wounds.
I can, however, say that I look WAY better now than I did 9 years ago on my wedding day. (It’s our anniversary today. So I posted a picture on FB from our wedding day- I am quick to point out how chubby I was then. Ick.) Sure, every woman is a beautiful bride. I looked as good as possible for me on that day. BUT I am happy to say I would drown in that wedding dress now!!!! Success. AND I hope in another 9 years, I can say that I would not fit in what I am wearing today.
