A bit of a rut.

Thursday, November 05, 2009

I haven't been really inspired to write anything for a few days now. I haven't really been inspired to do much of anything lately.

I don't know if it's the weather, or the time change, or just my own apathy, but I've just not been doing... anything.

I need to get my groove back.

I don't really remember why I'm doing this at the moment. Oh I know I need to get healthy and "I want to live longer" blah, blah, blah. But right at this moment I don't care about all of that. I can't remember, I mean really remember, why I started on this journey again.

I don't think I've lost the map, but I sure as heck don't remember where I put it!

Maybe I just need a good night's sleep.

    It's possible that the choice to do this wasn't a conscious decision, but just that you felt the inner pull toward healthier living? Sometimes when our spirits crave something, they nudge us in that direction, even if we don't completely understand what they're asking for.

I've been working very hard to reinforce the importance of having healthy habits that fill me up and build me up, rather than looking at far out goals that always seem to never quite happen the way I plan. It becomes really discouraging.

So maybe looking at the closer picture rather than this vague notion of "healthy" or "living longer" might help. The idea of developing positive habits, or faithfully tending to yourself spiritually and physically, or however clicks with you might be a better way to look at it? Maybe you'll be able to find your own keywords that click.

    Hmmm....Thursday blahs? I had to quit 3/4 way thru Step sculpt tonight...woz on my feet ALL day and my feet were killing me...but I took that I even WENT for my pat on the back...

I also keep a pic of my best-ever-bikini moment (when I was 35 so not so long ago) on my fridge to remind me where I am going.

I also saw a 280 lb. client today who has let life defeat the time I finished testing her and showed how she was actually much healthier (heart and muscle wise) than many clients I work with who look fit at face value, she told me she was inspired! She just needed to be in the company of positive people and learn some things she wouldn't ordinarily have access to (e.g. heart rate measures, back range of motion measures and competitive work performance measures).

What can you do for YOURself this week to prove (remind yourself that) you are AMAZING? Do that longer walk than normal? 15 minutes of dumbbell work while watching your fave show on TV? Or like me, actually manage to drag my ass outta bed early tomorrow morning to squeak out another dumbass report for another dumbass reason.

    It could be the time of year and the weather change. Shorter days and longer nights. I have a problem staying motivated and upbeat throught he first part of the fall season. I snap out of it and I hope if this is what is going on with you, you can do it too!!! Good Luck!!
