Rain! Rain ! Go Away!

Saturday, September 19, 2009

Why is that when we have had rain for the past 7 days I can not get in the mood for working out? Does it effect anyone else from wanting to do stuff.
I have tried each day to do something and just cant get motivated. I really am upset with myself. I know it may seem like I am searching for an excuse, but anyone that knows me, I have been doing so well with the diet and exercise and tracking part of all of it, I would get on my stationary bike and pedal a bit and be tired, I didnt even feel like writing in my journal, it even seemed like a chore to get on sparkpeople !!!
It is so dreary outside and ugly, I have drove to and from in the rain, I have gotten wet going into work, even with an umbrella. I have been tired all day long and the only good thing is I having done the eating out of "Boredom" part.....
I had a long talk with myself this morning when I woke up to the sound of rain hitting the roof, and made a commitment to myself that today wasnt going to be like the past week, today I was going to do what I have been doing all along. I am going to get back to doing this for me. I know everyone gets in a slump, reaches a plato on weight loss, doesnt feel like doing anything, but I am not going to get in that situation and not be able to stay motivated..... I am going to close the mini blinds turn on all the lights so it doesnt look yucky, put on my exercising clothes and do what I have started to do back sometime ago, work on losing weight...
I just wonder if anyone has has ever had this problem with the weather affecting them... I only wish the clouds and rain would go away so I can feel like a "happy" person instead of the "grumpy" person I have became this week. I love it when I am energized and feeling good about myself, but I havent this week. Unlike the rain cloud that has stayed over my shoulder all week, I will be full of sunshine from seeing the results of my hardwork and deication to myself in this long journey of weightloss. So rain, rain go away come again some other day, Tina is in no mood for you today, for she is ready to go and play.

    Hi, I just had a day like that a week ago. I know how you feel. You need to watch a comedy movie, something really funny. After that do force yourself to do some excerises. You should feel better and with have energy. I know this worked for me. Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I live near Seattle, so I know what you mean about rain. Sometimes I do find rain makes me want to sleep in, and just curl up on the couch with a blanket instead of working out.

    Shutting the blinds is a good idea - I also turn on music, which kind of helps motivate me sometimes.
