What happened?

Monday, September 21, 2009

Im not quite sure whats going on with me. This time last year, you couldnt pull me off an Elliptical Trainer..and now? I have no motivation. I never really lost A LOT of weight, but I lost enough through all the craziness that I was going through. I told myself that when I moved out on my own that I was truly going to make a vow to change things up. I know being FAT is not where it`s "at" it makes so many more aspects of life so DIFFICULT! INCLUDING DATING..UGGH! idk where my motivation has gone... because its not here :(

    Try doing something FUN for exercise! Ballroom dance, folk dance, or Zumba, maybe.

    Its never easy going after something you really want. You just have to stay consistant and stay in the game even if its baby steps all the way.

    Keep your focus YOU can do it!

    We all have our own trials. Can you set a goal for 1 week from now and think of the things that set you up for success - a habit for the elliptical or... For me, if I write down a plan, put a reminder on the mirror so I see it in the morning [and have to face it] and tell other people I am doing the plan - that is pretty powerful. Then I still have to do my personal things - like watch Kim Burrell sing on YouTube and get down on my knees and pray (and I'm not even religious).

    Every journey is different...pick a different fitness activity to start and once you get to it, you'll go back to the elliptical...What do you think?

    Motivation ebbs ad flows. Maybe trying something new would help, rather than trying to get back into what you did before. Do you have access to a pool for swimming or water aerobics? A neighbor to walk with? Or a coworker for a lunchtime walk? Start small, and stay here on the boards with all of us. We all ebb and flow.

    I used to love lifting weights and working with the weight machines. Now i have weights at home and haven't taken them out of the case! Let's work on this together,

    Changing is hard. For me, there is always a "point" where things will change, but it's never now. It's "Monday will be the beginning" or "when I move out I can..." or "when my food settles I'll go for that walk." We've been reinforcing our bad habits for years, it takes a while to stop them. But- You can. :) Try to find ways to reward yourself- shopping? Girls night out? Keep it up- you're here- you're trying!
