2014 5% Winter Challenge: Motivation

Monday, January 13, 2014

I like the way I feel when I'm taking care of me.
I want to improve my mobility.
I really conquer a 5 mile walk again like the pre MS days.
Keeping up with kids
Maintaining my independence at home: I have friends in their 50's who are bedridden from MS. If it were to happen to me I would be in a nursing home because I live alone. Nothing is more important than taking care of my health.
I'm a middle aged woman and I'm not out to be Miss Thing 2014, but I do care about my appearance. I want to look good in my clothes. I want to be stylish and have them fit well, on those rare occasions I'm not in sweat pants :)

    Great motivation!
    Ditch the sweatpants! Yoga pants are so much cooler (and I know as a mid 50s fashionista(not- I do most of my clothes shopping at Target!))
    Looking forward to purring and strutting through the challenge with you

    Good luck! It sounds like you have a very clear vision of what you want to do and how to do it, so I'm betting on you. It does feel good when you feel like you're taking care of yourself. I have a friend with MS who is much like you... and she does an amazing job of staying active, vital and young.
