Lack of Motivation!!

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Well everyone I feel like I have had it. I don't dare give up now though. I thought my 30th birthday a few weeks ago was going to be my turning point where I was going to make the full fledged effort to make necessary changes in my life....or should I say stay committed to my life changes. Tradegy has stuck several times in the last 2 weeks that had derailed my efforts severly.

Now as life has started to settle down a little bit I am struggling to get motivated again. I know that I have not followed my meal plan quite like I would have liked so stepping on the scale yesterday morning proved to be as scare as I thought it would be. You guessed it an 8 pound weight gain in two weeks. Oh you can imagine how disgusted I was with myself. I must press on though.

I attempted to do my ususal morning work out today, but cut it to 15 minutes instead of 30 because my mind just wasn't in it. I started to go back to eating know more fruits and veggies and cut out all the high fat and sugar food (as yummy as I may find them to be right now.)

I suppose I'm just looking for motivation from the outside world because mentally I just don't have it right now. I know I need to continue on the journey to be healthy and live a long life but at the same time I just want to throw in the towel proclaiming defeat because mentally my mind just isn't in it right now.

Maybe it just all boils down to just needing to vent. Maybe expressing my anger, frustration, sadness, and discomfort will help me get the motivation that I need. I WILL KEEP MY HEAD UP, CONTINUE ON WITH MY JOURNEY AND I DO REALIZE THAT I DO DESERVE IT NOW MATTER HOW BAD THE SITUATION SEEMS TO BE.

    You can do it and you need to find your way of doing it. Talk positive to yourself, each time you move and make the right choices you will feel more empowered.

Keep going.. one day, one hour, one minute at a time :)

Day 2 to an improved me.

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

I've been a member of SparkPeople for about a month now, but just decided over the weekend that I was going to go full steam ahead with my weight loss efforts. I'm tired of feeling run down all the time and just plain icky. I started on Monday trying to watch what I eat, and frankly, it didn't go so well yesterday. I would to blame it on commuting all the time with working all day and taking college classes at night,but that just feels like an excuse to me.

I find it difficult to stay on track lately. Finding time to exercise has been virtually impossible. Now that it is nicer out I'll have to just make the time to take at least a 10 min walk every day.
