feel like I'm sinking ...

Monday, April 26, 2010

I'm stuck in a rut; feel disencouraged (a word one dear daughter coined) and unmotivated while desiring to be otherwise. I push push push and sometimes succumb.

But when I look at my stats they aren't so bad - I actually push harder than required and so ultimately do at least what I need. While I didn't accomplish what I wanted, I've continuously closed on my fitness goals for the most part.

I have 'to do' items and demands up the kazoo or shall I say 'more than I can shake a stick at' and so many things waiting my attention. It's overwhelming! I'm fighting utter despair; it simply isn't an option.

Meanwhile as I hear other people's successes, I have absolutely nothing to report. And now; now I'm whining! *sigh* only thing to do is get up and at it again tomorrow.

Lord help me in my wilderness experenience - my objective, my perspective, my peace, and my accomplishment.

    You are doing great. Don't set your goals at an unrealistic level. Challenge your self to push a little, but make it achievable so you can reward your self and build on your success.

    We have ALL been there and felt this way, I know I have several times. What I have learned is that I have keep pushing along even when I feel discouraged. You have found a support system to help get you through. Keep working towards yours goals and you will deginitely get there. On the days I don't feel like working out, I think what is in store for me if I don't and get my booty moving.

    Hang in there emoticon and congratulatins on what you have accomplished so far. Remember where you started and where you are going!!

    Together we WILL get there!

    I was too, in fact I've been in that rut for about 2 weeks. But last night when I was eating some tacos I really started thinking about how no one can do this but myself. At the end of the day, knowing that I burned X amount of calories and I stretched (you know, the really good stretch), and I ate delicious food that is good for me I am working towards my goal. Hangin there, you'll be fine. emoticon

    So glad you posted what you're feeling right now. This too shall pass. It may be time to reevaluate your goals, both short term and long term. It's also a good time to look at where you started and where you are now. Assess how you feel now compared with the start of your journey. We all hit plateaus. There's tons of info on busting them on SP.
    It's a difficult journey to be sure, but the Lord has equipped you for the task and He is with you every step of the way! I am praying for you to be encouraged in Him, my sister in Christ! Take heart! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am with you - feel much like you do. Overwhelmed, discouraged, only you are sticking to this much better than I am. You are always offering a 'thumbs-up' or positive how can we encourage you?

    Can you resign from 1 thing to lighten your load? Just 1?

    What would that thing be? Can someone else do it? Can it be put off a while?

    God does not give us more than we can handle, but I think part of that includes delegation when needed.

    You sound discouraged. We have all made the decision to choose to loose and become a winner. You have joined so many others in the choice to be a winner. We don't always go full speed ahead but at least we are moving in the right direction. Keep working toward the goal and you will see the finish line. It may take longer than you hoped but at least you are have made advancements and that is great. It is worth all your hard work and your body will thank you.
