Why cant I do this???

Thursday, December 06, 2012

I just dont get it...I have no motivation to track, work out or even eat healthy. Why? I want to do good but I just dont . It is so hard at night to get online and blog or even look at message boards. I am so busy with my 10 mth old and by the time I finally get him down I am so tired. Maybe what I need to do is as soon as I get home from work I will work out while he plays in his bouncer. I never wanted to because that was taking time away from him but I could always keep him up 30 minutes longer at night. I was successful before when I would work out right when I got home.

As far as eating....I am too tired all the time to plan. I want to lose weight but I am so darn sleepy. I was told If I just ate better and worked out I wouldnt be so sleepy and I could go on a little less sleep.

I just make excuses all the time. I hate it. I want to do better. I really do. I just dont like how I am going about this. There are so many resources on SparkPeople that I can use I just dont.

I need a kick in the pants! :)

    It is going to be hard for you to succeed unless you find something to motivate you. Try doing it just in that one moment of time. For example, "Right now I am going to walk to the end of the driveway" or "Right now I am going to eat a banana instead of a bag of chips." One little step at a time can often be easier than trying to paln too far ahead. Take your little one for a walk around the block, bounce him on your knee, Both will give you time with him and the exercise you need. You will find that more exercise you get the more energy you will begin to have.

    Don't try to accomplish too much at a time but do SOMETHING healthy each day. Then slowly integrate the changes into your lifestyle. You can do this if you want to.

    For further motivation, carry a picture of your son with you and look at it each time you start to give in to bad habits. Being healthy for him can be a great motivation.

    Good luck in your efforts and know that you can succeed and help is always here for you.
