    Would stubbornness be an acceptable answer?

    I refuse to let people believe that being a T1 PWD means that I can’t do anything challenging. So four (going on 5) marathons, an Ironman and a few dozen other triathlons later, I’m still going.

    I hate when people doubt my ability to do something, regardless as to if it is related to my diagnosis, and that only makes me want to do it more.

    The fact that I’m in the best shape of my life and that running, swimming and biking make me feel awesome and lessen the stress of my job is a side benefit, really.

    I love the cartoon but I’m not sure I ever have the motivation to get to the gym.

    Ugh, I hate being sleepy enough to take a nap and having alarm go off for me to take a shot.

    Try not to think about the unpleasantries and just go through the motions that lead to the act of exercising. If I waited until I actually felt Luke doing it I would NEVER workout.

    motivation is something i could definitely use more of…and since i do not have a tv…it’s usually other things that don’t really allow much couch time…

    I like Tracy’s comment. I do things because people think I can’t or shouldn’t. I do it to prove them wrong. They push me and I push back a little harder!
    The thing that motivates me the most is my little nephew. I want to be around and be healthy for him!
    Thanks Haidee! Very thought provoking!

    Well, been there and done that, and had a coma as a result. Surviving a coma is a REALLY good motivator to keep that insulin flowing!

    The chances are directly related to how bad what’s on TV is.
