Resources....Resources....Reso
urces....and that I do have. I feel as if I am slipping, I have the lack of energy, time, and drive to keep me going at the pace I need be. I have every resource a person could probably need to be successful or at least on the right track to making there goals become reality when dealing with weight loss. I have the gym at my apartment complex, the gym at work (in the building I must add), a walking trail around a shaded lake at work (.5 miles around once), video games (Wii fit, Wii EA Active, Wii My Personal Trainer), workout tapes, in home exercise equipment, and most of all supportive friends and family (including my Spark's family), but where did the energy go. My eating habits are still on track with maybe a slip up or what most call a cheat day once every 2 to 3 weeks.

Point of this being said it that I feel the motivation slipping and if I can't keep my mind on track with my efforts I feel like I might be setting myself up for failure soon. How do I get the motivation and energy back so that I can move forward with my goals? I can say that I am still exercising but I am doing the minimum instead of what I am capable of and when I try to exceed the minimum I tend to wake up the next day in pain which effects my next day workout if I even feel like I can do a workout the next day. The lack of energy and the pain is not a good combination but I am trying to revamp again to find what I am missing in this equation to make it right so that I can get back on track.

So I am hoping to revamp (mini goals until I reach the ultimate goal) and use the resources that I have to make the month of August a successful one and looking for ways to make this weight loss (life change) journey a successful without repeating past efforts.

    Think back to why you're doing this and what your goal was. I often find reading my old blogs/or journal helpful in inspiring me. Set your sites on a the new goals you've set for yourself. I also find spending a lot of time on sparkpeople really gets me back into things. Best of blessings on getting your mojo back!
