Motivational Tools

I love pretty clothes. For the longest times I could only shop in stores that sold larger sizes and while they mostly tried to be hip, a lot of times it was a big fail.

I decided to use pretty clothes as motivation to stay on track and eat better and exercise as much as possible.  Its starting to pay off too:)

As mentioned in another post I found out that Ricki's goes up to a size 18 in tops and 20 in bottoms and I was soooo happy.  Today I put their clothes to the test.

Bear in mind that I'm bloated and crampy as its my TMO so I wasn't' feeling pretty or confident that anything would fit even with major sucking in of the tummy.

Ha!!!  The cropped pants fit great, just a bit snug but I figure in a week they'll be perfect. Also I purchased a pair of cool and comfy black linen Bermuda shorts.

I also picked up some clothes this past weekend at Old Navy and Wal-Mart too.  I think my size 18 shopping is now complete and now I wont shop again until I'm down to a 14/16

Tomorrow I'm going to start the Couch to 5k program. I downloaded and app on itunes and I'm so excited too.  I'm not looking to become a runner or do any races but I do feel it will help me be more fit and even help with endurance for long walk/hikes and bike rides.

What is your motivation for being fit other than the normal reasons?

Much Love & Healthy Living!!

I LOVE Ricki's -- that store makes me feel so skinny. I also love the fact that I can have some sort of style rather than just buying what fits from other stores.

Great news to hear you're going to try the C25K program. Girl, if I can do it...anyone can!
