|This is missing the #officelife tag!|
At first, I was confused by how people could think I lost some motivation for prep, because I'm more motivated than ever to compete! Admittedly, I have occasional doubts, but my motivation level has never been higher.
Then I made the startling realization that people associate me ONLY with fitness. What most people may not realize (or care) is that I have a desk job and actually spend the majority of my life at work ... not at the gym. Some days I don't even go to the gym! (Thanks to the treadmill in the guest room at home.)
Instead of getting upset or annoyed (which has been happening a lot lately - hey, I've been dieting for over 12 weeks! It's gonna happen.) at the misinterpretation, I decided to just thank people and let them know I appreciate their support. Because really, it was very thoughtful of people to send me support and encouragement! I'm touched that people took the time to send me a note when they thought I was losing motivation toward achieving my goal. It's so nice to know that there's a wonderful group of people - who I've never even met in person - cheering me on.
Thank you to everyone who sent me a note of encouragement this morning! I have since found the motivation to finish the Flash interaction I was working on. :) And you can bet I'll have a great workout in the gym later today!
