Constantly changing moods calls for constantly changing motivation
Tuesday, May 20, 2008
I feel like I have to constantly change my focus, to try to find my motivation. Some days I just want to look better. Some days I want to feel better. Some days I am looking forward to the 1/2 marathon and realized that I have a lot of work to do to get conditioned for this in Sept. Some days I am just satisfied that I did not gain anything.
My moods fluctuate so much, so today I am looking at the long term and need to focus on my walking miles. I found a walking plan to prepare for walking a 1/2 marathon, which breaks down how much I should walk daily and it builds it gradually and I have followed this schedule for the last week and a half. Just finding the time to walk this much will be the challenge. I can squeeze in 3 miles but when it calls for 7, 8, 14 miles - Ugh! With 3 kids, finding the time to do it will be the challenge. Good thing that we have a treadmill for the bad weather, but I have been fortunate lately to have some very pretty evenings to walk outside. Plan to walk at least 3 miles tonight.
Here is a link to the schedule in case anyone is interested:
I like having I have done pretty well with my diet yesterday and today. I have been tracking my W8W points again. This seems to work the best for me.
Pool opens Sat and I did not reach my short term 5 lb goal from a few weeks ago, but it is never to late to try again.
