Chasing motivation

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

I still just can't seem to get out of bed. I think it is either just do it time - or time to change plans. Maybe it's time to think about hitting the gym at another time? or running in the evening?

All I know is something needs to change - cause this hitting snooze for an hour in the morning just isn't working for me. I am tired, cranky, and feeling like a Shluff for not moving.

That and there was a failure to plan for this week!!!!! Where's the plan!

On another note - I just received notice that my new stuff is on it's way! I turned in a bunch of points and a gift certificate on amazon and was able to buy a bunch of stuffola for a little moola. Yeah points (and gifts)!

I am going to try Zaggora's hot pants and hot top - for hopefully some extra calorie burn at the gym (not running!).

and I ordered the BodyMedia CORE armband. (This was really my splurge!) It is suppose to track all my activities through out the entire day!

Hopefully new stuff will help me wrangle that motivation back.

Friday I have a haircut! I have been growing my hair out, and this will be my first cut since May!! It has been a struggle since I am use to a trim up every 6-8 weeks! I am hoping to get away from that by growing it out longer.

I am hoping to have a pony tail by October!! I do miss my short hair - it was so much easier! So we will have to see how it goes.

So plan for the remainder of this week.

Run this evening - even though I won't want to by the time I get home!
Wed: get out of bed and go to gym
Thurs: run
Friday: easy walk/ yoga
Saturday: long run - 3 miles this week
Sunday: off

The challenge is going to be working in installing a new floor and painting a room and hallway this weekend!! Hmm - I might have to look at taking a day or two off. But painting is dependent on the contractor finishing up the drywall - it may or may not be ready by this weekend.

    There is so much research saying that hitting snooze just makes us feel more tired. Knowing that doesn't always help us get out of bed on days when bed feels so good, though!

    I think you hit the nail on the head when you mentioned not planning for the week. As you know, a plan and commitment to putting one foot in front of the other is totally key. You can totally get yourself on track =)

    I could never do morning workouts. I've tried several times throughout my life. I could never keep it up for more than a month or so. I am just NOT a morning person. I MUCH prefer to work out after work or i the late evenings. In the mornings it's all I can do to roll out of bed, autopilot through my shower, and and get to work in the morning. I can't imaging getting up even earlier and trying to expend energy!

    I'm super excited for you getting the BodyMedia CORE. I love mine and I find it INCREDIBLY helpful on this journey. Knowing your exact calorie deficit every day really helps keep you focused and motivated. I just hope you don't regret the choice of the CORE over the LINK. I know a lot of people find it annoying having to hook the CORE up to their computer every day to sync it instead of being able to do it through their smart phone. I don't have a smart phone, so it doesn't bother me at all. If your CORE didn't come bundled with a digital display, you can get a GREAT deal on one right now through the old BodyBugg website. The BodyBugg brand is closing out and everything is going to be BodyMedia right now, so you can get the old BodyBugg branded digital display WITH the watch band for only $10 right now through the BodyBugg site:


    It works just fine with the BodyMedia CORE. I have two of them! One I wear every day and one as a backup in case my first one breaks. Bought it when the price dropped down to $10.
