Looking for love in all the wrong places...

What motivates you, or me or anyone for that matter.  It is different for everyone right?  I am not just imagining it right?

Motivation is like a that firefly you just cannot seem to catch.  You would think cancer would be a motivator.  Hell I lost 40 lbs during the whole thing.  What a kick start right.  Umm not so much.

So most recently I witnessed one of my dearest friends compete in and complete an Ironman race.  For those of you who are uninitiated it is 1 day of grueling triathlon.  2.4 miles in the water, 112 miles on the bike followed by a 26.2 mile, yes full marathon, run.  This is inspiring to me.  But have I done anything with that inspiration?  I guess I have eaten a bit better.  But exercise has been completely absent.

Ah motivation where are you.  I should offer a reward and put it up at the local market.  Call Matt if you find it.

I have found motivation to be an elusive and flighty thing, myself.

Good luck on finding your's!

Nice review. Motivation is a hard thing with losing weight.

If you are having a disagreement with someone, try having a long talk with them to work things out. This can be very relieving and take a weight off your shoulders that you may be carrying around all day. Resolving disputes with others can go a long way in alleviating stress.
