IDEA - Day 53: In need of motivation, Stat!

Saturday, August 11, 2012

Alright, I know, the title of my blog is a little misleading. I have plenty of motivation to make good choices - eating and exercise wise. What I don't have any motivation to do right now is sew.

I need to make a jacket, armor and leggings for August 30th - and I can hardly even bring myself to start today.


In other news I tried to get my exercise in today while walking my dog. Big mistake. Not only does he constantly stop, he pulls when he isn't stopped.

Oh, Jack, you almost got donated to somebody else today.

    I'm jealous. I want to sew, but need to get my machine serviced!

    So what's the part that's REALLY stopping you? Getting out the machine, the materials, putting it away when you're done, you're not confident you can do it....? Once you've identified that, find a way to get around that icky part. And maybe just getting started is the hardest part; once you get over that hurdle, the rest will be a cake walk (does anyone use that phrase any more?). However you perceive it will be the way you respond to it, so maybe it's just a matter of refocusing to the parts you look forward to, even if it's the completed piece!

    Good luck!! emoticon

    What happens on Aug 30th?
    Best to start sewing today so if something unexpected comes up you can avoid an all nighter! emoticon

    I only take my dog walking with me sometimes-for his enjoyment--not for my actual exercise walk. Jack sounds like a cutie though, just like my Larry, the bich-poo.

    I don't take my dog when I'm walking for that same reason. :)

    Just think about how awesome the person wearing your designs will look when the project is finished!
    Have a great day!

    Some days we just need to do what we have to do. I'm jealous! I don't own a sewing machine, but loved to sew back in the day. Pick the easiest one and start. Once it's completed you will feel great about what you accomplished and hopefully, will be motivated to finish!! Good luck!
