Angry With Myself

Thursday, March 03, 2011

ARGH!!!! I am so mad at myself!!!!!!!!! I had tons of motivation last week and now I am losing it. I was feeling great during workouts and today I walked for 15 minutes then came home because it was too cold. Granted, I walked a mile, but I could have pushed myself to do so much more, I KNOW IT!!! So why don't I? Instead of blogging I should be doing some cardio and feeling the burn again. Why can't I pick myself up to do it?????

    I suffer from this as well. But I always come back to the fact that even if I dont succeed immediately, I MUST keep trying. There will come a time (I pray) that it WILL come naturally, it WILL come without constantly having to push myself to do it and I WILL SUCCEED. I dont know what it will take to make the final lasting change, but I do know that if I dont try, the possibility of success will never cross my path. Keep up the good work!

    This happens to all of us. I try hard to just stay focused when I am feeling this way. Usually, I can get back on track. Granted, sometimes it takes a week or two, but staying focused on my goals helps me.

    Don't be too hard on yourself. This is a marathon, not a sprint. I have been doing SP since 10/09 and have only lost 7 to 8# but I'm trying not to focus on THAT....I'm focusing on loving myself more; exercising more, eating right.....Over time, you'll start to crave a healthier lifestyle but don't beat yourself up.

    You are allowed to be angry with yourself for the next five minutes. After that, take a deep breath, and commit to doing better today. Motivation will come and go. It is hard to do, but you simply have to make yourself do it when you don't want to. Once it becomes "routine," you won't even think about not doing it... but you will be angry (well, annoyed!) when you can't do it. We are all works in progress, and no one is perfect.

    How about making a list of the things keeping you from your goal? Make a list of all the obstacles and then go back and write two solutions to each obstacle.

    Make a plan. Implement the plan. Work the plan. If it doesn't work, revise and re-work.

    Get rid of anything in your way - toxic relationships, bad habits, negative self-talk, etc. Find some social support and publicly commit to your goal so that you have an even greater incentive for sticking with it.

    Ask yourself if you are willing to do whatever it takes to reach your goal. If the answer is no, then you might spend some time reflecting and finding that place inside yourself.

    I'm no expert, but when I start to feel like this, I stop, take a deep breath, and then....I change my mind.

    Instead of focusing on all the things I'm NOT doing, I count my blessings - as many of them as I can count! For starters, that I am able to MAKE THE CHOICE to workout or not, and that I am physically able to workout!

    Then, I acknowledge that I am human, and I am kinder to myself. Not wishy-washy, but definitely kinder. I don't allow myself to make excuses. I know it's a choice.

    Hope this helps. Stick with it. You're going to be just fine!

    Dont beat yourself up. Brush yourself off and keep going. This is a long hard journey. Beating ourselves up just makes it more difficult. Learning from our mistakes helps us improve.
