Any motivational advice? - Days 26 &27

Saturday, June 18, 2011

I'm having a bit of hard time right now. I don't know why I fell so emotional, but I haven't been losing weight and it's REALLY frustrating me. I don't know my body and it kills me.

Yesterday I did the Biggest Loser Challenge for 50 minutes but I didn't put my all into it. Today I walked 3 miles in 51 minutes. I'm doing the work but my heart isn't in it.

The only thing that is getting me through is that I'm almost to my 30 day mark. I don't think I'll stop working out when I get to 30 days, but we'll see what happens.

If anyone has any motivational advice for when you hit a wall I would really appreciate it. How do I get through this?

Thank you!

    Maybe you need a rest day. Sometimes it is easy to get so focused on working out that we forget our bodies also need rest time. Try taking a break for a day and see if the motivation comes back

    Maybe you just need a change of pace. Literally.

    It's a great metaphor for refreshing yourself by doing something a little different. Most people forget that it applied to exercise FIRST! LOL

    Try some new scenery, a different route. Try a burst of speed for a minute here and there, picking up the pace and then dropping it back down. Try biking or hiking or dancing or some other fun activity instead of the walk.

    Add some spice to your workout with some music-- or a workout buddy. My dog goes with me on occasion, but he likes a faster pace than I can handle even at the age of 15! LOL

    All the answers you need are inside you, hunt them down. Think outside the box. I know emoticon
