Fake it til you make it!

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

I'm having a seriously rough week. I feel like not getting out of bed at all. But I did. And I'm on plan. And I exercised. I think I should get outside for a walk because I am really unmotivated.

I did the Spark 10-minute kickboxing video (LOVE) and a 10-minute low-impact video on YouTube and lower body work. I want to do more - I want to work up to 45 minutes a day, 5-6x a week. I need it. But I had to really push myself just to do 30 mins today.

I sound like a big whiner and complainer! I need that "JUST DO IT" mentality and I'm trying to dig deep and find it. But it's hiding right now.

Tonight's dinner is a little off my menu plan - but making Cajun shrimp, veggies and whole wheat pasta. I went to the fruit/veg market with my Mom today and bought some lovely mushrooms, green onions, cabbage, red potatoes, and radishes. Also some new Flat Out wraps and 100-calorie whole wheat tortillas too. I have everything a girl needs to eat healthy! LOL

So here's the thing - I am going to CHOOSE to be positive. I am going to eat right. I am going to exercise. I am going to find the glass half full. And I will do it until I feel it. I will go through the motions. I CAN DO THIS!!!

Love all of my Spark friends!!!

    serve it up girl, attitude is everything, choose and choose again, fake it till its true .
listen to the self talk we don't always hear what we say to yourself listen and if its self defeating change the channel, listen and choose, listen and choose life is only as good as we choose to make it.

    You can do it, Sherry! I have been streaking for 76 days, and when I started I was only working out for 15 minutes a day. I slowly worked my way up and now I do two 45 minute workouts every day. Just take baby steps, and keep pushing yourself.
