One day at a time

Thursday, January 03, 2013

As motivation peaks and wanes; it's sure as heck feels on the motivated days I should have the energy and the body I'm working for NOW. LOL On the unmotivated days at least I'm starting to hold myself accountable for being a slug, rather than let it pass unthinking of it's consequences. I sit here with my belly on my lap and argue with myself about hitting the elliptical. Why is it so hard to put thought into action?

    Thanks. I'll try any trick in the book. Trying to back away from just repeating negative comments till I start. I think that feeling bad about myself saps energy.. even though I'm trying to create it. Very self defeating. A hard rut to get out of though.

    Sometimes when I feel like I can't, I find that if I just start and say "just 5 minutes" and see if it will energize you enough to do the whole thing. Lot of times you will be able to keep on going. You can do it!

    If you can't get on the elliptical, then just walk. The important thing is to get moving, even if it's just in small 10 minute bursts. When I began this journey the only thing I COULD do was to walk. Now I walk 8-9 miles/day. You CAN do it!! Take it one day at a time and you'll start seeing the results. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am the same way...I always find 100 reasons to talk myself out of something. What i have found works is saying to myself "Okay I am going to do this for 15 minutes..." I usually end up finishing my whole time.
