To quote the Grinch....WHAT IS THE DEAL?!?!?!
Tuesday, July 16, 2013
Okay, it's summer. Time for bathing suits and pool visits. Should be enough motivation for anyone right? What is my deal?!?!?!? I can't get motivated and the pounds are creeping back. I have no idea where I'm at - I don't own a scale and the Y's scale SUCKS. I can tell though by looking at myself in the mirror. I've had absolutely no will power with my eating either - back to eating until I'm stuffed! I can't get motivated to work out and drive myself nuts all day coming up with ways to get out of working out and then being angry with myself for doing so. I think the problem is I'm bored with my routine. I have only about 1.5 hours when I do work out and that's just not enough time! I get in about 10-15 minutes of stretching, 30-40 mins on the treadmill, and a minimal amount left for ab work and whatever else I might fit in. When I look at what has changed in my rountine from what I was doing when all my weight loss happened, it has become more cardio centered (spending more time on the treadmill than I used to when I'd walk/jog the track) and less "other". I do way less ab work now - thank you neck issues and lack of creativity on my part.........I'M JUST PLAIN BORED!!!!! You know your routine has become boring when you actually sit there and consider a way to do suicides in the gym when it's cut in half by the curtain (why would I want to go back to the torture of highschool basketball practice)! I've thought of jump roping but then I think of how it hurts my knees. I love to swim but the Y only has 2 lap lanes of which are ALWAYS in use and sometimes doubled up when I'm there! I am frustrated, bored, unhappy with myself and searching for motivation. Oh and I forgot to mention that I'm getting in only one day a week with our hectic summer family schedule vs. 3 in the winter months. UGH!!! I've also noticed that I'm more tired and more "depressed" again. I know everything I need to do but just can't find the motivation anymore to do it!!!! Please Spark friends, help me! This is the perfect emoticon for how I'm feeling -
