Needing motivation

Saturday, March 27, 2010

I am having problems staying motivated. I am not doing well at tracking my food and I can tell it on the scale.

I just get so depressed having to watch what I eat.

I need to exercise more as well but with work yoyoing like it does makes it very hard.
It is frustrating getting into a routine and then being knocked off that routine by a 12 hour work day.

    I would suggest just looking at 1 day at a time..... start small and build a new habit. Once you get that habit built add 1 more.
We all have the same number of hours in a day so just look at what needs to be done. I would suggest starting with creating a new habit of setting time aside each night for planning your next day.
Fitness can be fit in anywhere... 10 minutes here and there..... and walking is probably the easiest to start with.
Good Luck!

    Start small? If you've joined the Team Goal of exercising, try to track that? Try also being just interactive on the forums too. We also have a mobile App for tracking if you have the correct type of Network and phone. emoticon

    I work 12 hour shifts, I completely understand! But remember tomorrow is a new day, you really can do this- START kicking butt!

    It's not only the past that counts, it's the present, and the future too. When a 12-hour day puts us off-track, we just need to get back on track the next day. Sometimes, when I'm just about to eat something that will put me over my goals for the day, I stop and ask myself whether I really, truly must have it; most of the time, just asking the question stops me, but that's a habit that took some time to build.

Remember to be kind to yourself along the way!
