I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

Motivational Monday....Late Edition

This morning I did not want to get up.  The 4:30 alarm that signals I must get moving to make it to boot camp by 5:30 a.m. came way too quick.

I really thought about bashing the alarm in with a baseball bat.  Or hitting snooze a few times.  Or just ignoring it completely.  My bed was really comfy. 

Then I told myself:  You will only regret NOT going.  Once you get there it will be fine.  It counts the most when you DON'T want to go.  Now suck it up.

So, I got up. 

And did it. 

And you know what?  I was right..............I don't regret going.  I would have regretted not going.  I would have been really upset with myself for skipping because I did not get this far to get lazy now.  This is when it counts the most. 


  1. great post. I am going to put the quote up near my alarm clock!!!

  2. WOW 5:30am boot camp! talk about DEDICATION.
    Glad to see that you got there, you are one inspirational mumma!

  4. You are a girl after my own heart! Thats how I feel some days and it does count double going on mornings like this!! I bet you felt freeking awesome after bootcamp!
    I love your blog and thanks for the motivation!

  5. Awesome post! I'll remember this the next time the alarm goes off!

  6. You are so dedicated to this and that's why you are so successful. I hope today is much less stressful than yesterday, my friend :)

  7. great post! I admire anyone that can get up at that hour. I'm a night exerciser. :)

  8. I agree with Amy completely. I am in utter awe.

  9. I fully have a sign in my kitchen that says, "You will never regret going to yoga or riding your bike to work. So just DO IT!" And I try to remind myself of that every single time I want a nap more than I want to hang around to go to yoga! Most of the time it works! Good for you for rolling out of bed...
