where oh where has my motivation gone?

Monday, February 11, 2013

I had such good intention in the beginning of Feb. but somewhere or somehow my motivation up and left me. My exercising took a walk with my food tracking right out the door. They must be enjoying life because they have not returned. So my challenge is to find them again. I am not sure how that is suppose to happen. I know all the tricks like start slow, change one thing at a time,and just do it. In my mind I have good intentions but to put the actions with the thoughts. That is where I am finding it hard to do. I am not totally giving up. I have just had set backs big ones. It takes more than a desire to lose weight and right now all I seem to have is the desire. Oh how I wish I could just make myself move and track and stop putting food in my mouth

    There comes a point where you have to decide if you want to be healthy and lose weight or not. Then do what it takes, motivated or not. Thats where I am right now, I'm just going to have to suck it up and do it, like quitting smoking. Whether or not I "feel" it.

    So you're maintaining for the moment. That's good, it lets your body accustom itself to the changes it has been going through, and when it has done this, you will find the motivation will come back with renewed vigour. Just accept, tread water a while, and wait.

    The fact you've acknowledged its gone is a start. I'm sure it will return all the more determined. emoticon

    Call it the winter blogs. Think about summer and how you want to look. Set a goal a small one. Set one for just a week. It is not just a desire to lose weight. It is a passion. You have to make it happen. I get down all the time when my scale don't move ,but I keep going, some times I change things up. I get bored with the same thing. Maybe you need to change up to something that excites you. I think spring will put a bigger spark in me. Good Luck. Have a great day. Find your passion. emoticon

    I understand, once you lose your motivation its hard to get back going. What I think about is my skinny jeans I have hanging in my closet. I hope your "motivation & exercise come knocking at your door soon.
