Merry Christmas Eve. (Motivation Monday)

Alright, so I'm back! It's been an interesting few months.. But I'm ready to get back in to the swing of things! Actually, on a Facebook group that I created a while back, we are getting ready to start a 2013 weight loss challenge! How exciting, right? Well with a new challenge comes the need for new motivation. I'm realizing the same things don't motivate me that used to. Since making some major changes in my life (like becoming a disciple! woot woot!) I've noticed how even certain songs just DON'T do it for me anymore. lol So what better excuse to search for some new motivation than to continue Motivation Monday?! So without further adieu --

My top 5 motivators for the week:

#1: 1 Corinthians 9:25 -- Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.
Yeah, I understand this isn't exactly talking about weight loss specifically, but isn't exercising self control when it comes to eating important? Isn't being disciplined enough to exercise daily (or according to a schedule) a sign of maturity in all aspects of your life. I can't very well be a disciple and talk about self control when I'm lacking MAJORLY in this area of my life. So boom. Big time motivation.

#2: T-Swift's We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.
For some reason when I'm "lifting" (struggling with 20 pounds) this song really pumps me up! haha and since I'm getting more interested in weight training, it's important to find the right music. Songs that are crazy fast and great for cardio just don't do it for me when it comes to weights.

#3: The splits!
I can't remember the last time I was flexible enough to do the splits. I think even in my soccer days when I was actually fit, I was never flexible. So hey, I wanna get that limber.

#4: Kutless - Strong Tower
An oldie, but a goodie. This song also motivates me when it comes to lifting. lol I guess 'cause it's got the word strong in it. lol And it's just a straight up inspirational song.

#5: This little nugget of truth
I'm only TWENTY! I shouldn't feel this miserable throughout my day to day life! I should be able to hop out of bed, run as long as I want, make babies, play with kids without being out of breath, and I just can't..
So I'm gonna change that.

Well that's it. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and I hope that you'll all join me in making 2013 the best year of your life.
