Motivated Mondays

Kelsey @ Random Randts

I linked up with Kelsey from Random Randts today. She had mentioned the linkup in #SMChallenge. That Facebook group has definitely been great motivation. 

Today, however, I am going to talk about my BIGGEST motivation right now. Babies. I have caught the fever. And the fever burns HOT. 

I know it would be pretty selfish and unhealthy to get pregnant right now. I am too overweight and too out of shape. 

I am also almost 31. I realize that's not too old, but it's going to take some time to lose this weight. I don't want to wake up one day 40, overweight, and childless. That being said, I realize not having a baby isn't the end of the world. I just want to know I did everything I could to try. 

I've also been trying Young Living's Progressense Plus. I'm hoping this will help with any other hormonal issues that could make it harder to get pregnant. I've only had it about 10 days, so nothing to report so far.  

Sorry, this is a bit of a downer motivation. It really does keep me going though.And I know I'm not alone in this motivation :-)

I know I haven't checked in much but the new year is going great! I have been tracking every day and I finally joined a gym again. I'm also working with my friend, Karinya, to learn more about Young Living essential oils. I would say I am on the road to 2015 being MUCH healthier than 2014.

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2015! I'm looking forward to many exciting things this year. 

2014 was not a terrible year but it had some low lows. I lost several family members that I will miss dearly. I also felt like the year flew by and I did not accomplish anything in terms of getting healthier! 

2015 will be the year that does happen!! I've written out my goals for 2015 already and I'm going to post more about them on this weekend. Most of them fall into one of three categories: organizing, health, and finances. Pretty typical for resolutions/goals.
