Lacking Motivation

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

I feel just the way the picture says...who stole my mojo? Since I stopped playing softball, finding motiviation to workout has been a task. I have my moments when I hope I was never married helping to raise 2 chidlren, because my life is consumed by them I have no time to do me. I want to workout, LORD knows I do...but because I am soooo tired I don't. I have sooo many easily accessible things to workout with...I have Wii Fit, Biggest Loser, and Jillian Michaels 2010 Ultimatium; I have many Jillian Michaels video to choose from; and I have a gym membship, but I don't use them because I am tired or someone has the TV. My heart is there but not motivation. Over the summer I lost 20 pounds and my goal is to lose 40 pounds by February 14, 2011. I'm trying to go to a LGBT Prom (I never been to prom) and wants to look on point and plus I want to be more in shape for softball season so I can play 3 seasons in a row. Anyone wanna help me. I need a huge push.

    You can do it. Stop making excuses and just do it. It's much easier for us to come up with excuses as to why we can't exercise. Tell yourself that you'll take a 10 min walk. Once you start, you'll do more than 10 mins. Just don't give up. We get so busy with our families that we put ourselves aside. Good Luck!

    You have to just set your mind on this and make yourself do it. Stop looking for an excuse and make your time to exercise. You have come to far to give up now. Good Luck!

    It doesn't sound like lack of motivation, you just need time and understanding. Does you family know how bad you would like to workout? Maybe talking with them will help to free up some TV time to fit in a good workout. Heck, maybe they can join in with you.

    Exercising also helps spread the endorphins. So you may be tired when you start but after you get going, you will be feeling GREAT!

    Hope this helps! Hang in there.... you can do it!

    My kids are older, but we have to run all over God's green creation taking them here and there.

    The one thing that motivated me was to sign up for a 5k in February. Now that it's paid for, I feel I have to go to the gym and train for it.

    Does your gym have a daycare? If so, maybe you could bring the kiddos there during your workouts. Or if no daycare, then maybe your partner can watch the kids for 30 minutes so you can get a workout. Or maybe go on a walk or bike ride with the kids.

    Getting there and starting is the HARDEST part for me. But once I'm done, I usually feel amazing and my mojo is restored!

    Good luck to you!!!

    You can do this! You know you will feel better if you just move!! You'll have more energy too.

    In the immortal words of Michael Jackson, "don't stop till you get enough!"

    Just do it!!!!!!
