I Refuse to be a Slacker!

Saturday, March 23, 2013

Lately, I've gotten slack in multiple areas of life. I've gotten slack in school, I've gotten slack in personal responsibilities, I've gotten slack in wedding plans, and worst of all, I've gotten slack in my weight loss goals! I hate being a slacker. I've just been so exhausted lately, that all I've wanted to do has been lay around and do absolutely nothing. Sadly, this has led me to program my brain to do just that, instead of tend to the responsibilities I need to tend to! This even includes responsibilities to myself! For example, I was going to go running today since it was so nice outside. But I was so "tired" that I just sat in bed all day. The only time I left my room was to eat and use the restroom. This is unacceptable to me. I hate doing the very thing I hate doing! It's leading me to make exceedingly poor choices! So starting now, here's what's going to happen: I'm gonna get back on the horse. I'm going to quit partaking in these lazy habits. I'm going to go to bed on time. I'm going to pay attention to what it is I need to get done. I'm going to get on SparkPeople more than I have been lately. And all of this together, plus the power of Christ, is going to get my life back together. And that is just how it's going to work. I REFUSE TO BE A SLACKER!

    That's a great start, you've recognised there's a problem, and have made a plan to change! Have you tried one of the SP challenges? I've started the Spring Into Shape Challenge, and it's every day, so even if I'm feeling a bit tired, and don't really want to be active, I have to do it because it's scheduled, and I want to earn my trophy! It's a great motivator. But also keep in mind, your body does need rest on occasion, so it's important to learn to listen to what your body is telling you. And getting enough sleep is a good start! Hang in there, you can do it!

    We ALL have these moments!! As you know, you not alone. I can totally relate to feeling lazy and personally I've had to take a break from the wedding planning because the stress makes me want to eat!! emoticon It's awesome that you are able to acknowledge what you need to change, and make a plan to follow to help you follow through with the changes. emoticon "keep calm and pray on!"

    You're doing great, don't beat yourself up! You're realizing that what you're doing isn't going to help you reach your goals! Don't forget we all need a "mental health" day here and there. Consistency is key: if you consistently do what needs to be done to reach your goals, then you will get there, regardless if you have a day or two "off".If you consistently avoid doing what needs to be done to reach your goals, then you will not reach them, regardless if you have a day or two working towards them. We all need a break sometimes!
