It's been a while

I'm stressed. I'm lazy. I'm addicted. I'm tired. I think that pretty much sums it up. I'm going to try again to do better this week. Of course, how many times have I said that in the past? I hate to say it again because it seems that each time I say it, I fail. However, I can't succeed if I don't say it/try it. I know what to do, I just don't do it. I allow small excuses to get in my way. My knees hurt, dishes aren't done, I'm too tired to get up in the morning, My husband doesn't like me working out at night..... I need to do something though. I don't feel good. (physically or emotionally) I know in my head this would help some of it.

There are small times where I think, "yeah, I CAN do this." "....I really WANT to do this!" Then 2 minutes from that positive thought, a negative thought comes in. I don't feel very strong (emotionally) to keep trying. I read through a few motivational articles, but really, they don't motivate me. I just need to get over my lazy self and get up and do what needs to be done.

We'll see how this goes. I really hope and want this time to go better.

    Someone on Spark said losing weight is 80% diet and 20% exercise. I don't know if that's true, but I do know you need both. Since it's so difficult right now for you to get some exercise, it seems like a good idea to be very careful with your diet. I track my food every day...tedious, but without tracking, I'd be off track! I especially like the summaries, the charts and graphs. Once you start losing weight through cutting calories, you will probably feel better and be able to do more. Right now, it seems that you are frustrated and that's adding to your stress. Etc., etc. Best to you!

    It is about progress not perfection. Maybe you need to start a streak and perhaps that will get your motivation in gear. emoticon
