Morning Motivation

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

It's always so easy to be motivated...about tomorrow. Every night I convince myself that I can do this! Tomorrow I'll make the change! I feel so bad about all the poor choices I made today. I didn't work out and went out to dinner tomorrow I just won't do those things. Easy.

Then morning comes.

Turns out getting up 15 minutes early for a nice walk is much harder than hitting the snooze button three times. Then lunch comes and goes at work and I didn't manage to get out of the office. Then I have Zumba right after work, no time for dinner. After Zumba I don't want to cook so I go out. Then I get ready for bed thinking about how tomorrow I'll make a change.

Easy enough to think things. To say things. I've made calendars and read books and figured out what I could do. I've tried big changes and little changes and all kinds of incentives. Sigh. I just want to feel good. You wouldn't think that's so hard...but it is. I'm not happy with my body, but I don't do what I need to do to change my body. Suck.

I just wish I knew what it would finally take to get me there. What will be my turning point? I guess I'll find it eventually. Until then, I'll just try to keep my head above water.

    I agree with a lot with KRISLEEB on what she said. Plus we have days we don't feel like doing this or that. You can do it. Keep up the good work on the good stuff.

    You hold yourself with such sureness that, if I didn't know you so well, I'd be saying you were nuts! You exude confidence!!! It is about finding a system that will work for each of us. We are individual and not from the same mold so the same answer doesn't work for everyone.

    How about this...okay, so it's easier to go out after Zumba....TOTALLY get that. Now, how about making better choices about going out. Why not hit Subway instead of the burger joints? Or somewhere else that might have less "bad" (read EVIL) choices to eat. I couldn't get over the cravings I had after doing one of your classes so I TOTALLY know what you are saying. Don't put yourself in a position to go for the 1/4 of fried grease with a side of fried potatoes. (making assumptions here)

    You have a love of life that is bubbling over and I admire that. You are an AMAZING person!!! You are also a determined person so I have faith that you will continue to seek out a solution and find something that works for you.

    You CAN do this!!!!
