Sad while exercising, from guilt and fear about not doing other things

Monday, August 08, 2011

Last week I started crying while doing the 30 Day Shred. It wasn't because it was hard (although it was hard), it was because it was morning, I had woken up somewhat late and I was beating myself up for not having done enough the day before, and being slow to get to doing more that day. That feeling came over me again today during BFBM, although I didn't actually start crying.

I finished my summer job, and will not have much of a formal schedule until next week. I have a lot to do, but sufficient time to do it. I need to apply to some jobs and organize my room (as part of my new goal to be more organized). I know the sadness I feel is irrational, based in disappointment in myself from things past. All I can do is stay motivated and know my plan for the day. I only spend about 30 minutes exercising a day, and I have the whole day to catch up.

I have been consistent in exercising each morning and I am proud of that, but I feel less successful in my new goal of being more organized. However, I know I can't let this more successful area of my life suffer in my quest to be more organized and have better time management.

    i liked it when i did 30 day shred because it was not a large time investment, but it requires some time everyday, but it is a great challenge. i sometimes with i put more time in some of my other goals, but i am trying to find balance and focus on what i can control.

    Congrats on your exercise!!!

    It sounds like you might be overwhelmed by too many big goals at once...What if you chose one aspect of being more organized and focused on that, then added more as you were successful with the first item?

    It takes the pressure off, and you see results as your successes build up...and you have less to beat yourself up over!

    Baby steps are progress!!! emoticon
