Motivation, have you found it?

Thursday, October 24, 2013

This past week has been really hit or miss with me. I've been doing the bare minimum for exercise and just hit and miss with what I eat. Have to admit probably more of the miss. Not sure why but I was seeing some success and that can trigger a backslide for me. I am my own worst enemy. Does anyone else have that problem. I haven't decided if I feel like I don't deserve success or I am afraid of the added responsibility that success will entail. Maybe a little of both. I do seem to create problems for me where they shouldn't exist.

So, today I am reworking my food plan, setting up a schedule for exercise and reading some of the motivational posts on this site. I signed up for Brene Brown's class The Gifts of Imperfection. It is a life class through Oprah Winfrey. I need to get started on my journal. It is a six week class. This weeks pledge "I'm imperfect, and I'm enough". Now I need to make myself believe that it is true.

I got my husband to help me cut out the side of a clay pot so I can make a little dioramic fairy garden. I saw them on a site on Facebook called Creative Ideas. Hope to work on this today too. It will have a little pond and a bench and some tiny bird houses. I have some moss and stones but need a couple of small tiny plants that don't grow very fast or very big.
I had to add a couple photos of my finished fairy garden.

    Those are really cute. I have to say, I'm finding myself so busy these days that I just eat on the go, which does nothing for calories. With being busy, it's hard to find time to exercise. I feel you pain and understand your struggle. Hang in there. The motivation articles are nice to read, but sometimes I find they don't help with my lifestyle.

    I guess the only thing I can think of, is do you think you are worth it? If you do, that should be all the motivation you need. Maybe do some self exploration and find out why you don't think you deserve the success. Maybe pinpointing the reason will help you overcome it?

    When I'm down on myself I will put on some motivational music, well music I like that speaks to me. Right now I'm listening to "Give me a Sign" by Breaking Benjamin, and it really fits with my mood and my struggles right now.
