Getting Motivated

Saturday, December 10, 2011

It has been a real struggle since my last surgery. I have been having the worst cravings for sugar and I am usually one who doesn't have the biggest sweet tooth. I know what I need to get done but getting motivated has been a bit of a struggle as well. I think it is because I have been working two jobs since July and I feel like I have absolutely no time for me and just relaxing. So I am spending the little down time I get doing just that, having down time.

I need to start using it for exercise and kicking my butt time!!!

I know I have the ability to get this done and get back to where I want to be! I have gotten there before, I know what it takes! I just have to do it!!

Soooo..... I gained back like 15 lbs and I so need to get it off! I think that is what is making me the maddest. I told myself I had lost it and lost it for good and now it is back. I feel defeated and I need to stop that! I am still better than I was when I started and just because I gained it back doesn't mean I can't lose it again. I am smarter than I was and I am a healthier person than I was, I just have to get back on that horse and kick some serious ass.

I got this and I CAN DO IT!!

    You can do it! You have the tools and know what to do. You know why you gained and what you need to do to get back on track. Cut yourself some slack, given your recent obstacles, and don't allow yourself to feel guilty. We all fall down sometimes, that' just life and it is okay.

I can't wait to hear about your progress in the upcoming weeks!

    Yes, you CAN do it! We've all experienced setbacks from time to time. You just need to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again! Fifteen pounds may seem like a big deal, but with some dedication, I'm sure you can knock it off in no time. Try remembering how you felt at your most motivated and see if you can reclaim that feeling to get yourself moving again.

You have the tools, you know what you need to do. I have faith you will take this bull by the horns and CONQUER IT! emoticon

So, is there a way that you can squeeze more ME time into your FREE time? I like the things that MOJO_RISIN said--you can rebuild that base and get there!

    I always have sugar cravings :( Sugar and baked goods are my worst vices... sigh. But... not having "down time" can severly mangle your mind and thought process, so I'm glad you're able to get back to yourself. Get it, girl! I have faith in you!!! XOXO

    Don't be so hard on yourself!!! You can do this!!! A little bit at a time. One change at a time. You are worth the effort it takes to get healthy! Even as busy as you are, take a little time to take care of you.

    I know you can too! You just have to find time for 20mins of cardio daily.

God bless & lets make it happen!

    you are not alone, for one reason or another many of my spark friends, myself included, are carrying a little extra fluff. i am hovering around that 15 lbs too, but all it took was one of my spark friends to help me realize to stop feeling ashamed and start working towards getting back to where i want to be and beyond, and so, that is what i am doing! we have all the tools in our toolbox, we just have to use them. start building yourself up again, drinking water, fitting in a short walk around the block, whatever will help you re-build your solid base, as you mentioned you are SO far ahead of where you once were, embrace you now and you will be free to move fwd! xoxo!
