A Renewed Motivation

Last week, I worked more hours than I cared to work and saw several co-workers I hadn't seen for almost four years. On Friday, while escorting some residents to and from an activity, a co-worker stopped me to say, "You're the talk of the home!" She went on to say them I looked great and have personally inspired her to do something about her weight. I have never had anyone stop to give a comment quite like that before. It actually came as a bit of a shock to me, but I took it and ran with it for the weekend.

Had an awesome weekend tracking EVERYTHING for two days for the first time in a long time. I will continue to stay honest to myself as I have let things get a little out of hand lately. I know I can do this, it's just a matter of how bad I want it. Now, with the pressure of knowing that people are "using" me as a real-life success story, I need to prove to myself and others that I can continue to be a success.

My Father's Day was peaceful. Went to the MIL's and stayed away for the "lessthanhalffullbagoftaffy" that I had brought the last time I visited. I came with a plan stocking my pocket full of WW fruities and snacking on them throughout the afternoon. The kids stayed outside most of the afternoon and I napped with the little guy while snoozing to the Brewer Game, US Open and NASCAR race. A successful afternoon of peacefullness!

How good of God to renew your motivation like that. I think being aware of your weakness helps too because it reminds us of where our strength comes from.
