I missed last week’s Mamavation Monday because I was all laid up trying to recuperate from my New Orleans escape.  It was a fantastical weekend, and I assure you I will be writing more about it (including pics) on a day other than Mamavation Monday.  For now, I have to get back to the purpose of this little project…Wellness.   

I think I have discussed on here before, that motivation is a real issue for me.  I don’t really understand why I crave Wellness, and I really have no reason to want to lose weight.  I know all of the reasons why I “should” want to, but never-the-less I. Don’t. Want. To.  I had a great keynote speaker at the escape, and I will be sharing more as I read through her book.  She didn’t specifically point me to the why, but as a result of a conversation that was the result of her keynote, I think I have my reason!!!

Follow me for a minute, because this is a complex/simple answer.  I write a Wellness blog…I want to be mildly good at writing a wellness blog…to be good at writing about wellness, you must walk a path to wellness…how in the world are you going to walk a path to wellness as a morbidly obese person without losing weight?  Tada… Nearly instant motivation!!!  So, now that my street cred relies on my ability to walk the walk and talk the talk, I am precisely poised to want to do something.  Although I realize this is nothing more than a Jedi mind trick, I am grasping at straws here. 

My first step is to get organized.  I am utilizing some meal planning, and I am stocked with some of my favorite healthy treats.  Creating a path of least resistance to making the right choices, and a new attitude of self-preservation.  This is going to be a fun week!!!
