Finding Motivation

As you can tell from my last few posts (which haven't been since last week...slacker), I have had a hard time getting motivated to workout.  And eat healthy.  And care that I'm not eating healthy and not working out.

Even though I'm having a little trouble though, it makes me realize how much this weight loss/get fit journey is a life-long journey.  I'm going to have bumps in the road.  Everyone does.  The only thing that matters is that I recognize the bumps, accept them, and learn from them.  I think the fact that I'm on here blogging about it shows that I am at least conscious of the fact that I'm struggling.  And you know what the cool thing is?  I know that I have some neat bloggy friends that have been/are in the same boat as me.  So thanks for being part of my journey!

I did exercise last night, the first time since last week.  To sum it up, I did not finish my January Miles Challenge.  In fact, I was 6 miles short.  So, to make up for that, I'm doing 66 miles in February.  So far I'm on the right track and I've got three down.  I'm going to the gym tonight and I'm going to get another 3 (at least) out of the way.  I think one of my downfalls last month was trying to go too hard too fast.  If I keep my mileage shorter except for maybe one day a week when I up it, I will *hopefully* be more inclined to stick to my plan.

I also will strength train this evening because I made a goal last Wednesday to do it twice a week.  I just need to get it in tonight to complete that goal.

I guess you can say I'm still motivated enough to get through the negative thoughts, at least on the exercise front.  Food is a slightly different story.  I've been doing a lot of afternoon boredom snacking, which needs to stop.  Now.  Needless to say, I will not be needing any sort of dessert tonight when I get home!

Have a good day!  Just keep pushing if you are struggling, take a break when you need to, but get back on the wagon!

Oh and Biggest Loser is on tonight!  Yay for motivation!  Especially since tomorrow is Weigh-In Wednesday...not sure what that is going to bring!

Just thought I'd leave a picture of my favorite place since I was boring you with that post!

This is my home!

  1. That post wasn't boring... We have all been there. Motivation comes and goes in waves... it's catching the wave and riding it for as long as you can that counts. You'll get it back. Baby steps make things happen. And remember, you are not alone!
