depression?? My own worst bully.

Saturday, February 08, 2014

I've worked out two days in a row now... I have these little heart shaped stickers that I put on my calender on days when I work out. :) It's childish but I like it. I started doing that at the beginning of the year and sadly my January only had 2 stickers on it :(. February is looking slightly better with 3 stickers lol.

I don't really know why I lose motivation as easily as I do. Maybe it's due to my anxiety and perhaps a slight depression. At times I do feel trapped with in my surroundings and with in my own body that I feel as if there's nothing I can really do about it. At times I can be so unhappy with my current situation and I know I should be thankful that I do have a roof over my head and parents who do care, but I feel that at 25 I should be able to depend on myself and have my own place by now, but Wal-Mart is too proud to really care about their employees to give them that much. I do feel better on days when I work out. I feel better after a really good work out for example: when I was doing that insanity work out I felt amazing! I felt stronger and proud and more confident. My problem is, though, I want to see results right away. I have no patience to wait weeks just to find that I went down one size.

I am my own bully. I understand this. The voices in my head are harsher than anything any one else can say to me. I feel like I failed if I don't see instant results... and that is not a healthy mindset to be in. I know that I'm not going to see those results right after a work out, but for some reason that hasn't stopped me from getting angry at myself and telling myself that I'm doing something wrong. I want to live my life in a fast lane so much that I can't slow my own mind down and make it realize that what we do need to take weight loss slow and steady... give it time to catch up with us.

    You sound like me :) I'm my own worst critic too. I also put stars on my calendar, the visual helps me keep going and lately I've been workiing for stars. Often that's the only thing that gets me moving. Gotta get a star, gotta get a star.....
