Pushing 40 is Exercise Enough, and Other Thoughts

Friday, February 08, 2013

Today I read the Spark article www.sparkpeople.com/reso
urce/motivation_articles.a
sp?id=1062
and it was just what I needed.

Yes, I have been struggling with my motivation the past 2 weeks. Dedication to exercise and mindful eating have slipped down the priority scale to near the bottom.

I've skipped days of planned exercise. I've not tracked my meals, or I've not been mindful of my caloric limits.

Does this mean I should just quit? Should I donate my running shoes that I've finally broken in how I like them (even with my baby toe sticking out the side on each emoticon ) Should I throw out my exercise clothes and just reconcile myself to buying a bigger wardrobe?

Perhaps I should just stop being particular about planning my weekly meals, stop exploring new recipes.

Ah, no, says SP. They say I just need to pick myself up, and start to focus again. Pick something and focus on that until I've got it, and then pick something else.

Okay. If you insist, I will refocus my energy. I know I can do this, I just tend to let my slack-self take over if I miss one wo or eat one meal that wasn't as healthy as it could have been.

So, back to work for me.

Don't give up, just start over.
