searching for motivation

Thursday, October 25, 2012

had an awesome night of sleep last night. i did wake up at 430 and felt like i had slept enough but my bed was so toasty warm and i knew i had to work until midnight tonight, so i was able to fall back aleep! that's a pretty big accomplishment for me as i'm not always so able to shut my brain off (i think it helped that the husband slept downstairs as he worked late last night and got to sleep in this morning without us bugging him). so now, i have 4.5 hours until i have to leave for work. i'll probably head to the gym but am just searching for that motivation. last eve my workout was so "bleh". i was going to do 20 min of cardio before upper body strength training. my cardio wasn't going awesome, hardly even felt like sweating (which is a common occurance when i'm on the elliptical) so i shaved it down to 15 min. then i just could not get into the weights. i checked the clock after a while and realized i'd only been lifting for 10 min! some days (most days) time flies at the gym. i think one of the reasons was i had worked 7am-330pm that day, and had plans that eve. probably too much on my mind to really get my head into what i was doing. so today i need to make a more conscious effort. we have the 5k on sat, so if i get there today, i could possibly take tomorrow off and feel good about making it 3 times this week, plus the 5k on sat.

    Some days are like that. Don't let it bug you. Today is a new day and you CAN find the motivation if you try.
