Motivation is slippin'

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

I forced myself to do my walk on Saturday, I literally wanted to just stay in bed, but I got up...got moving...and got out. Unfortunately when I got back I was feeling severe back pain, I stretched out, and had my sister press on my lower back. I then forced my to just do the strength training, but not the Zumba. From that day until today I have had a real lack of drive to do my workouts.

I feel mentally and emotionally stretched out. Like I am being pulled out like taffy. This isn't the first time this has happened...I am plagued with depression bouts as well as anxiety. I am going through moment of wanting to get it done, but and just not feeling it.

I decided to change my program to hopefully fit more within my life once I get home. I know tomorrow is gonna be better...cause I am gonna make sure it is. I forgive myself and am not gonna think on this past weekend anymore. What is done is done and tomorrow I am gonna get it moving again.

    This whole thing is a journey, hon!! We will all have ups & downs, good days, bad days. Don't strive for perfection, just progress. When I'm feeling unmotivated, I just remember how many YEARS I've spent yo-yo dieting - to lose 30 lbs, only to regain 40. Over the course of 10 years I wish I could just take it all back and do it the "right" way. Slow & steady. Make daily decisions that you can be proud of and the rest will fall into place.
