So much stuff has happened over the past couple of weeks. Sometimes I don’t know if I’m coming or going. One thing I DO KNOW is that we only have four Monday classes left, and a final on our fifth Monday, for our first semester of RN nursing school ~ and that makes me a happy camper. :) Looking back to August 17 and the knowledge I have gained since then, I’m amazed. Some I’m not one-hundred percent comfortable with, if they turned me lose tomorrow I would be TOTALLY lost, and sometimes I still feel like I flounder around a bit…but each day is a learning process and I’m learning a little bit more as we go.
Now onto my title…what motivates me. I want to be healthy, and with the MS it’s even more important that I take care of my body and exercise and try to eat right. BUT I think my motivation came from wanting to be skinny and here lately I just don’t care. :) I’ve been a terrible eater lately, and I’m only going to the gym about twice a week. I still am motivated to go, but I think if my mentality goes back to the healthy standpoint instead of the desire to be skinny that it will be easier. It’s very easy to decide that being skinny isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and I will just be fat…whereas if I want to be healthy for a lifelong goal/endeavor it will change my outlook on ‘having’ to give up all the good food that has become a comfort to me the past month as I trudge through the final part of semester one. :)
So here’s to being HEALTHY and not just skinny!! <clink, clink> :)
Need to run…have a care plan, an assessment, and a journal to write. Oh the joys!
