I was reading the first few posts on my blog. I am trying to find my motivation. It comes so quickly and leaves even quicker. I don't understand why I can do so many things but I have this hang up with losing weight. If I just kicked some but for like 5 months I'd be there...That isn't hard at all. It is all mental.
I can't get past the idea of it. I am not trying to be a whiner or come up with excuses. But that is all I do.
Today is a rainy day, and I just want to hide in the covers and watch movies...
I have a house to clean (calorie burner) and things to do, but honestly I can't get motivated. UGH!
I keep reading about these awesome women losing weight, I was there too just a few months ago. I think that if I were to lose some weight again I would be motivated, but I can't seem to get motivated enough to lose the weight.
On Sunday after the 5k it was all clear...now, not so much. Not sure what to do about it all...
I guess I could leave the motivation in the dust and just do what is right. That is what I think I will do. Forgo waiting to be motivated, get up off my larger than I wish butt and get moving.
If I were talking to someone else I may say something like this.
"I know it is hard, but you can do it. It isn't as hard as you think it is. Eat right, keep your house clean, make sure you have healthy foods in the fridge and ban the bad foods. Get outside and exercise. You can do it! You always feel so good when you do exercise, so just go and exercise. Be prepared, drink lots of water and fool your belly into being full. Think before you put something in your mouth, is it healthy?
If you are eating and not hungry find something else to do instead of eat. You can do this! Lose the weight, be the girl in you, that you know you are!"
I will. I can. I am not motivated but I can do these things anyway.
Hoping for a better day.
note: when my house is messy I feel sluggish, overwhelmed and yucky, when my house is clean I feel accomplished, and fresh. So, I will start there!
