Motivation = 0

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

And so I am feeling like I always do after starting any healthy eating regimen - TOTALLY UNMOTIVATED WITH NO WILL OR WANT TO GET UP & DO ANYTHING! I don't know if it's the fact that I am limiting what I am eating & also being more active...or if it's more a mental thing. I truly believe that my job is a huge factor in why I feel the way I do. I come home everyday mentally worn out & just don't want to deal with anything or anyone. Whenever I have a day off or a holiday, I find I feel so much better & more "active"...or at least wanting to do more. I had to literally make myself get on the treadmill tonight so that I would get some exercise in. It was only for 1/2 the time I usually go BUT I did push myself to run more than I normally do.

After getting in here tonight & looking around & getting my points, I am starting to feel a little better & more motivated still to keep on my healthy path. I have been on this path for about 2 weeks now - which is longer than I have done anything like this ever. From past experience though I know I have & can give up on this way too easily. So I am hoping that I can overcome those feelings & keep pushing on! I did sign up for the Biggest Loser challenge through here & am hoping that keeps me going!!!

    I've been on and off the wagon for years and can really relate.... I'd do well for a few weeks... have a few off days and just eventually just say forget about it.

    I went through as especially unmotivated week last 2 weeks ago and did a series of motivational blogs that helped. I posted pictures and talked about WHY I wanted to loose the weight and that helped me get in gear.

    Good luck and just remember, 6 months down the road you will be so happy you kept on or you'll look back and wonder how far you would have come if you would have kept going,

    YOU CAN DO IT! Find what motivates you!
