Losing momentum?

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

I don't know if it is the upcoming holidays or the fact that I was sick with the flu for a while last month but I have not been in the mood to workout like I used to. I am still at my 10lbs weight-loss mark and maintaining but want to be under 190 at some point in my life again, preferably sooner than later. Over the past few weeks I have worked out maybe 3 times per week if that. I think I am burning out and getting bored of just working out period.

I need to renew my mind and get myself together. I have found new workout to do, I just have not had much motivation to actually do them. "Deep sigh" I must find my motivation again, because Monday came and went with not workout, Tuesday morning is here and I am at work without completing my morning workout, but tonight still offers another opportunity. The question is will I take advantage of it?........ Mentally I pray so...... to be continued?

    I was feeling the same way sometime in September. It's not uncommon but it will pass. What helped me was just working out for 10 minutes at a time. I found that just moving helped build some momentum. I also challenged myself to take one of the classes at the gym. There is a great motivation article here on site and I believe someone has given you the address. Remember that you are worth the effort. emoticon

    I was sick a few weeks ago. I don't know why, but everytime I start to exercise or eat better I always get sick. I guess its my body's way of getting out all of the yuck... Well in the past, once I got sick, I stopped what I was doing and the progress went down the toilet. Well I was sick about a month ago, and I was determined to not let it stop me this time. I actually went out and did my running intervals when I was still not feeling well, and believe it or not when I got done, I felt a little better...then the next day I was back to normal. This will pass...You can do this...You just need to take that first step again and do it...You might not like 1 minute of doing it, but doing it is the key!

    I can relate to what you're saying. Try to use the fake it til you make it routine. Go to the gym and jus do what you feel like doing, try new machines, if you can afford it buy two or three personal trainer sessions. They can be pretty motivating. Thats what I did and it helped. Good luck to you. emoticon
