Where oh where has my motivation gone?
Sunday, May 25, 2014
I have started each of the last 3 years on a diet. The last 2 years I have gotten derailed by moving and such and have gained back 1/2 my weight each time. I just realized last week that I have gotten lower in weight than I did the last 2 years I lost. Now I'm afraid that I'm about to blow it! I had a stressful, busy week last week. We bought a new (to us) vehicle and I was getting ready for a garage sale and then sat out at the sale for 3 days. I used it as an excuse to not really be all that careful about my eating. Then today I way overate and tomorrow is a holiday! I haven't done any exercise the last 2 days either. To make matters worse, I started coming down with a horrible cold today! And this upcoming week is really busy as well! I need to get myself back on track! I need to make time for my exercise! I'm hoping I can get up early tomorrow to go biking but with this cold I'm not sure I'll be able to pull myself out of bed. I really struggle with remembering that 10 min is better than nothing. I want to go all out or I don't want to do it at all! My weigh-in day is Saturdays and since I already blew the last 2 days it is really easy for me to just blow the whole week instead of getting back on track. I do really want to make the change, though, and not go back to my old habits.
Anyway, just some random thoughts. Not sure they even make sense - this cold is really messing with my head! Hoping that getting my thoughts out helps me to get motivated again....
