Fear of embarrassment is a strong motivator.

When Jen contacted me to tell me I would be the next blogger featured on the BOOBs site, I choked on my own saliva a little bit! WHAaaa? Me? I hadn't blogged in... well, FOREVER!

My "deliquency hiatus" is a reflection on some other areas of my life as well. Or, perhaps because I've been deliquent, I've missed out on the motivation of my fellow bandsters to propel me through positive life change. Whatever the case, Jen's comment was a wake-up call for me.

You'd think the knowledge that I'd be meeting up with 40-some other women, traveling a similar well-worn path as I am, would be motivation enough? Apparently not! My Mom did always call me pig-headed. True that.

So, here I sit, 9 days away from the quickest, most expensive trip of my life (break down the cost with slightly over 24 hours of duration... it's a lot!) & I'm embarrassed at the way I've back-slid. (Is that even a word???)
I'm going to meet all these AMAZING women who have taken charge of their lives & are gonna have some serious hot bods to show for it... & I'm still sitting at the edge of my precipice to change.

Perhaps Chicago will be the catalyst I need to get me back on track.

At any rate, I'm blogging again!!! Can I call that my NSV for the week?
