I have motivation that comes and goes

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Where is that motivation I had last June that NO MATTER WHAT I stayed on plan and worked hard at loosing weight.

I got back on low carb....only to jump back off and enjoy my weekend. I know I need to be on low carb, it's when I feel my best, but I just can't seem to muster the motivation to get going again. The first few weeks are the hardest.... and then you feel great. I just can't seem to get in that groove. I always have little things that come up that I allow to be excuses.

For example, it's my one year anniversary this month, and we are taking a trip. I tell myself... no use starting this week. You'll just throw it away on your trip and how often do you get to go do stuff like that. A determined person would allow themselves some enjoyment, not go overboard, and not use stuff ike this as an excuse. Ugh. Even after typing that I'm still not conviced I'm starting anything until I get back.

I just need to refocus and find that motivaiton again, but I don't know where it went! Hopefully this upcoming weekend can get me going.... just like my own wedding did. Not going to stress out, but I need to think about a plan and start getting work outs in too. No matter what I tell myself, it's waiting until next week.

    if you want long term success you've got to figure out how to stick to your plan in the midst of life's challenges, celebrations, etc. if you want something bad enough sometimes you need to make sacrifices. unfortunately we can't have it both ways. we're either all in or we're kidding ourselves and we're not going to see the progress we say we want.

    Such cut photos! And you look teeny tiny super slim! Hope you find your motivation soon, but I do also hope you enjoy your trip. It's not often your anniversary comes around (well, once a year lol Sorry, I'm being silly!) so let your hair down a bit and don't stress too much about this whole weight loss thing.

    Me too. Where's my motivation from last week? I do feel you on the "why do I need to live this way...this is too restrictive." My body looks best on low carb. I know this too, but it hasn't been enough to get me off my bum. So, that being said -- know you're not alone. We can do this. We'll find our mojo sooner or later. emoticon
