SparkPoints frustrated with myself!

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

This week has just hasn't been the best....I feel like I'm just doing the bare minimum, I'm not losing weight and I'm not gaining, but I'm no where near my goal at all.

I've been doing really well with cooking dinners and packing my snacks and lunch for work the night before. But I'm just slacking so much on the working out front, and I want to.

Take this morning for example, I set my alarm early so I could get up and workout at my apartment gym, but when it went off I decided to be LAZY and skip the workout....ahhhh!

Of course I won't have time to workout after work because I'm going to a movie with one of my friends and then we're going to cook dinner together, but by the time that's all over with it will probably be too late to get in a work out.

Why do I set myself up for failure like this?

I just can't let myself get in the way anymore....I'm going to achieve what I want to, and I'm not going to stop myself!

    do you have a workout buddy? It's hard to stay in bed when you have someone waiting on you to work out with. It's never too late to get in exercise. Working out before bed won't keep you up all night. I do it sometimes and actually fall asleep faster.

    I know how you feel. I just recently recommitted myself to a "structured" exercise plan this week. Even though it is a 30-day workout plan, I'm test-driving it out for six days. I can do six days. Then evaluate my progress and then see where I am.

    Set mini goals and reward yourself. Start small and small increments. When I decided to pick up my tools again last week, I didn't really exercise at all. I just concentrated on my nutrition and paid attention to what I was eating and getting my mind right. Consistency leads to motivation. I read that on another member's blog. And she was so right. it's not the other way around. If I wait to get motivated, I'll be pushing that snooze button for sho! Some days, I may exercise in the middle of the day or in the morning. Most of the time, however, the evenings are great for me. Don't be so strict on yourself. Remember, yard work, taking a walk with your friends after work, or even cleaning your room for 15 minutes are all fitness minutes! Then you add here and relax. This is YOUR program and you will incorporate what works into your lifestyle. We're not perfect. I'm not. And I'm not perfect in my program. But every little bit helps.

    You have committed to a healthier lifestyle with your cooking and planning ahead with your meals. And that's half the battle. So recognize and be proud of the changes you have made and visualize the changes you still want to make.

    Here's to a healthier and more CONSISTENT you! emoticon

    Trying to stay on track is hard work and I know how your feel. You have to find the things that motivate you and you will do it. It's okay to take time out for yourself and relax with a good movie or book it won't hender your work out. Just get back to focusing on your goals. If you feel you are losing to much time not working out a 10 min vigorous work out is better than no work out at all. emoticon

    Don't beat yourself up.

    What help me when I joined SP I purchased a pedometer that keeps me motivated. When I'm getting ready for work I place/pin it on my clothes. I'm starting to track my steps when I leave home until I get to work. I go for a walk on my breaks and lunch hour. I keep myself moving at my desk by getting up and opening to door for my coworker and taking the long way to the rest room and also go to the farthest printer.

    I just keep it moving and when I get home I complete my workouts.

    Remember that drinking water actually speeds weight loss. Divide 2 by your body weight and this will give you the ounces of water to drink everyday. This is what I do and you will see results.

    You can do it!!!!!

    You go girl!!!! emoticon emoticon

    LOL Love your blog! What I do is that I always set time for working out. Sometimes it's not an hour. Perhaps it's only 15-20 minutes but you know what that is better than nothing! I must workout everyday otherwise I lose motivation! So on the days that I don't want to workout or wake up early I go biking with the kids, or skating.... :) Hope that helps! Enjoy your day!
