Lost Motivation

Friday, December 28, 2007

For some reason I am not as motivated as I was. Since the hustle and bustle of the holidays have made it difficult to fit my exercise in my schedule, I've slacked on my healthy food choices and exercise. I gained during Thanksgiving and lost it within 2 weeks. However, I just can't seem to get it together now. I'm tired all the time. I make plans to work out, but I find excuses not to go. I can feel that I've gained and I feel absolutely miserable. Perhaps the loneliness of the holiday season has a little to do with my lack of motivation. No family here. Just the kids and myself. However, today's Healthy Reflections "Making your own opportunities" holds true. I know if I can get started, I'll desire to keep going.

    Hang in there. New Year's day is always a good time for me to start fresh. I hope this turns out to be the case for you as well. I will keep you in my prayers. Happy New Year!

    Here let me give you some of my extra motivation!! What I tell myself is fell off the horse, get up, dust your britches off, check for any bruises and get right back up there!
    You can do it!
    You already have so getting back on is no problem...start slow again..just get 10 minutes of exercise and drink all the water you need and eat within your range...just one day and then the next gets easier! You can do it I know you can! If you need me I am here!..Joyce

    That's the good thing about this journey. Even when we slack, slip or lose focus. The reasons come back to us and we can get back on track and make it happen. I did the same in October I gain 12 lbs since then and now I'm working hard again to get it off. I lost 4 but man I'm so mad at myself for letting this happen. Don't get to down just get back on track and make it happen. this is your life, your promise, your dream. You can find the strengt again.

    be the change you want to see
