Stress And Lack Of Motivation
Friday, October 04, 2013
I feel like I have lost all of my motivation to lose weight and eat healthy. I know what caused it but not sure how to fix it.
One of my main stressers is college. I’m going to school for an associate’s degree in Health Information Management and have decided that it’s not exactly what I want to get a career in. Instead of just switching to another degree, I am going to finish the certificate that goes with it that is Medical Billing and Coding, so at least I have something to show for the work I did put into it. I really want to go for a degree in Psychology, but after I talked to my adviser yesterday, she informed me that I would have to keep going until I earned a Master’s degree in psychology for it to even be worthwhile. I honestly know I could do it, but it’s the cost of all those years of college. So this has taken a toll on me.
Another stresser that is killing my motivation is I hit a plateau with my weight loss. I guess its cause I started hanging out with a few of my friends more often and eating out, but I have a major issue with working out by myself, especially in public, so it’s a lose lose situation for me. I honestly need a workout buddy or someone that will keep me in check and I don’t have anyone like that.
