In need of motivation...

So here it is at 3:30 in the morning and I'm up blogging.  I should definitely be in bed, but I've got too much on my mind right now.  It's been such a stressful week.  Can you believe I had 5 doctor's appointments scheduled during my week off?  I also had my yearly physical and all of the normal blood work done.  My labs came back and they weren't terrible, but they didn't seem great either.

A new motivational tool that I'm going to use is something that I'm borrowing from Kim at Flowers and Art.  She's going through her own journey and she posted pics of dresses that she wants to be able to fit into for motivation.  I think that is a fabulous idea!  So here are my 2 dresses.  If I fit into the first one it will require David to take me somewhere very nice - lol!  The second one is just a nice spring dress.

Wish me luck!  I've got my fingers crossed that I can stick with this!

Jessie- you are in the same boat as me- lots of health problems would go away for me if I had more exercise and controlled my diet better. I am soooo guilty of taking the easy way out with fast food way too often-if you need encouragement email me-cuz I'll know how you feel and I'll probably be struggling with similar things. You should blog on Healthy Thinking Thursdays with us-if you want to. Maybe if there is more of us around we'll all stick to it better. I LOVE your dresses- hooray for inspiration. I have been walking almost every day and now I am thinking about those shape up shoes- still deciding because of the price, but something tells me the price is worth it. Hope your sleep schedule evens out soon!!! A hug to you for new resolutions!!

I'm often up till three or four in the morning. Maybe we should start a night owl club!

Good luck with your new health resolutions, Jessie. I'm rooting for you!

Kim - Healthy Thinking/Living Thursdays sounds great to me! I think maybe that will be my weigh in day - so I'll have even more motivation!

Cia - I am such a night owl! If only my job corresponded with my sleeping habits!
