Bad week. I need to find motivation asap!

Friday, February 10, 2012

This week I feel like I've failed on all of my goals. I'm still tracking what I'm eatting and most days keeping within my calorie range I can't seem to find the energy and motiviation to work out this week. I've been fighting a horrible cold and just forcing myself to go to work everyday this week has been a struggle. Seems like any time that I would use to work out I am now using to sleep. I have yet to step onto the scale this week but I already can tell this week is shot. I feel so discouraged that even now when I'm trying to take this journey seriously and I'm concious of my poor choices I'm still making the poor choices.

    You are not a failure nor have you "blown" it because you are still on Spark and you are reaching out. Every little step forward is a winner. I have had times when I've felt horrid. I just recently got over the worse flu I've ever had. It's taken weeks. I did not exercise and didn't feel the need for it. I'm now starting over and never once felt like a failure because I was doing what my body needed. Always listen to your body and mind.

    It sounds like you have made progress if you are still tracking your food intake. Be proud of that! Everyone has off weeks. Next week will be better just start small... emoticon don't get discouraged.

    Look at your week with a bit of optimism. You successfully ate within your limits. You did go to work despite being ill. Concentrate on getting well and you will regain your desire to exercise. This weekend when you don't have to go to work, schedule in some exercise. Don't expect to do as well as before you got sick. Remember you can make progress on 10 minutes a day. Hope you feel better. emoticon

  Think of all the good choices that you can make and be happy and focused on those! Imagine yourself making better choices and how you will feel. Do what you can and keep doing more until you're back on track emoticon

    Hi there....
I can understand the fight to find the motivation....especially when you are sick. When you are sick your body is fighting to find health again don't be do hard on yourself right now, it is understandable that you don't have the energy to exercise or even to make the wisest choices! This will pass, do the best you can and find your focus once you are feeling well again!
Get well soon!

    Having a cold, or any set back during this journey sucks! Just remember there is 52 weeks in a year and one week, or even a couple bad ones isn't going to ruin the whole year. Look at the big picture! You are still trying to get healthier and that's a big step! Wait until after you feel better and then tackles those bad habits again!
