Where is my motivation?

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Man! Zapped! Just totally empty of any motivation to exercise or get back on the band wagon to good health. I'm in this mode where I tell myself I'm going to do it, but then I don't. How did I let this happen to me? So here I am...again ...trying to reach up to the light & pull myself up from this hole I seem to be in. I regained all my weight (35 lbs.). I know I have to figure this out & give myself a good kick but its just not happening. If anyone out there in Sparkworld has been in this same hole & has some encouraging thoughts...i'd appreciate it. If you have not experienced my same feelings...i understand...all prayers are welcomed! Huggs for listening!

    I think we've all been there at one time or another. I certainly know I have. No real words of wisdom, just praying that you find the strength to make the changes that you know you need to make. I know emoticon !! Let's work together to make 2013 the year all our hopes and dreams come true. God bless you!!

    I've been in that hole more times than I care to remember. It's discouraging and frustrating but it's not fatal - not unless you are willing to give up. Bad habits become our default position even though we are sincerely trying to change. We just have to keep at it until the good habit becomes the default. Try starting back with something relatively simple. One time I decided to walk around the block after taking the trash can to the curb. It only took about 5 minutes, but it reminded me how good it felt to walk and breathe in the fresh air. Sometimes lack of sunshine and cold weather in the winter can bring on SAD symptoms (Seasonal Affective Disorder) which makes one want to eat and hibernate. There are ways to fight back. SP has a team for SAD with lots of info and helpful advice. Don't dwell on the past failures, you can't go forward looking in the rear view mirror. There is lot's of encouragement in God's Word. That is mainly what keeps me going.

    Blessings to you

    Don't get overwhelmed, we have ALL been there. I need to get back on the "wagon" also. All we can do is take one day at a time. Lets just get through tomorrow, one hour by one hour. The first few days are the hardest. Once we get through day 3 maybe we will be back in the swing of things. Good Luck to us ALL! emoticon
