Motivation – Easy or Hard?

What is MOTIVATION?  Derived from the Latin word "MOVERE" which means "to move", it's the processes that account for an individual's intensity, direction and persistence of effort towards attaining a goal.

Or, from the dictionary:

Motivation [moh-tuh-vey-shuh n]:
1.  the act or an instance of motivating, or providing with a reason to act in a certain way;  "I don't understand what her motivation was for quitting her job."
Synonyms:  motive, inspiration, inducement, cause, impetus
2.  the state or condition of being motivated or having a strong reason to act or accomplish something:  "We know that these students have a strong motivation to learn."
3.  something that motivates:  "Clearly, the company's long-term motivation is profit."
For some, it's easy to be motivated.  For others, it's a constant struggle.

However, one of the other readings that's not routinely tested for, but was done for a recent test, is "c-reactive protein" or CRP.  An increase of this in your blood is an indicator that there is some inflammation in your body.

You DESERVE To Be Healthy And Fit!

best-project-is-youWoohoo, the kids are back in school!  But, does that free up your time or does it mean a whole new set of commitments to meet and timelines to follow?  Do you still feel that you "have no timeto focus on your own health and fitness?  If so, just exactly when do you feel you will have the time?
