How do you keep your mojo?

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

I seem to have lost my mojo somewhere along my journey. When I started my last job, I worked very, very long hours and just lost my motivation completely. I put back on all of the weight that I lost plus an extra 15 pounds. I am officially at my highest weight ever! I am still shocked by that, but I need to acknowledge this is writing for it to actually hit home.

I have moved on to a MUCH better job that is a lot closer to my home. I have the opportunities to get out and be more active. Some days I really want to, and do. Some days I just really want to, so most times I don't. I just can't seem to keep the motivation going like I did last time. I am really frustrated with myself because I cannot seem to get my *hit together this time.

How do you do it? How can I do it? I am feeling like I am just beating my head against a wall. I will not ever make any progress. I will always be stuck behind this roadblock. It would be easier to just stay like this and learn to live with it. How do I get past these thoughts. I know that they are not true and I know that they are not right, but my frustrated brain is stuck in an unhealthy loop and I don't know how to reset my thought process.

Please help me get restarted on this path. Please.

    Take a moment. Sit down in a nice quiet, peaceful place. Write down your priorities, goals and wishes. Write down what it will take to get you from where you are to where you want to be. BE REALISTIC. Take small steps. Some days you have to fight a little harder than others. I know that the days I want to hit the gym the least I end up with the best workouts and I feel SO much better after I've gone.

ASK FOR HELP when you need it. We are all here for the same thing. I know that I tend to retreat when I should be reaching out.

Be well. Spark on!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

(**I'm also writing this for me. I lost 60 lbs, and gained back about 10. Not another ounce will get on this body!!!) m

    Think about where you would like to be a few months from now, then make a list of the way you can get there. Stick to the list. Have someone or several make you accountable. Do you really want the change? If so emoticon
