Wanted: motivation

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I need to get some motivation. In my mind I have it. The part I don't have is the follow through. I tell my son wrestling takes work you can't be good unless you work at it, then I turn around and wish I could lose weight by sitting on my butt. These next two weeks are going to be very busy for me but I would like to get some exercise in every day. I need to do something. right now I seem to be going through the motions of sparkpeople and not letting it really effect me. I am just not sure how I get my mind and body working together. I know no one can tell me and I have to figure it out. I just wish I could. I guess I had better start praying for wisdom.

    The advice I always give myself is "Do it, then I can complain about how I don't want to from a position of having already done it. " It usually works for me. Just make yourself put in 10 minutes. If you do 10 minutes everyday for 10 days, you will have a good start on making it a habit, and maybe then you will feel like doing more. And 10 minutes isn't that long. But the best way to get motivated and stay that way, is to find something you actually LIKE to do, like roller skating or swimming or Wii fit or whatever is fun to you.

    I don't know how your doing on the food part...but the exercise and getting off your butt part...I make a point to do something everyday...even if it's 15 minutes. SP has a lot of great short workouts in their video section...so does youtube (love free stuff and it amazes me how much free information is on the web...good stuff, too!).

Park the car a little further from the door. I park pretty far from the door in all well lit places...and just use caution. It gives me some extra steps for my fitbit and add to my calorie burn...a lot more than I thought it would.

tracking food...I'm not the greatest at it all the time and I get so frustrated when I track on my phone and the info doesn't carry over to my computer...because I stupidly put in the wrong date...

Spark says fast break, right....keep trudging...some days you trudge a little less then others....but it all comes out the same in the end.

Looks easier on paper

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I started this week out so well planning and getting it all on paper. I had a plan and was going to follow it to the T. I did really well Monday and Tuesday then came Wed. I had to go into work early and was busy all day then some running around and when I sat down my feet hurt and I was tired. I grabbed some cookies and cheese popcorn. By the end of the day the bag of cheese popcorn was gone and the package of cookies had only 4 left. I went to bed tired and not feeling the greatest. So now today is Thursday and I have a choice to make. How will I spend this day. I know it will be busier than I once planned but that is ok. I have a plan and the includes exercising in about 10 mins for about 20 min and strength training later in the day. Most of the junk food is gone from my house (since I ate it all yesterday).

all I can say is Here to a New Day!!!!!

    You're right--you do have a choice to make. When you sit down, do you want to reach for junk food, or do you want to munch on some celery, carrots, or low-fat yogurt? I'll be honest, nothing, and I mean NOTHING, tastes as good as the feeling of being healthy and fit. When I do overindulge, I have a commitment to myself that I will work it off, or as much of it as physically possible. Is that easy to do? No, but it's humbling to spend time doing it because I've learned how much works it takes to do so.

Put yesterday behind you and commit to yourself that you will do better.
You can do this--I believe in you.

A new week

Monday, January 07, 2013

I am ready to get this week started. I sat down and tried to figure out when I will exercise and what I will be eating. It all looks good on paper. I just hope I can follow through with it. It seems sometimes it is easier to push the things I don't like to the bottom of the list and then I just run out of time. My goal this week is not to do that. If I start with exercise then it will be done and over. So with that said i need to get off and exercise. Have a great day everyone!!!

    Sounds like you have a great plan! One of these days I need to learn to get mine done early, too. It's so easy to avoid doing it later when there are so many other demands on your time. Have a great week!

Today I pack up my girls and send them back to college. It has been a great vacation and I enjoyed every minute of it. I will also be glad to get back to a routine. I will be able to exercise more constant and get rid of all the junk food in the house. I guess each season has its ups and downs.

On a good note I did lose weight this week so that was my positive.


the end of the week

Friday, January 04, 2013

So this week was a short one for me. I started on wed. but I have to say I did pretty good. I was able to exercise and stay in my calorie range. I did go a little high on my fat range but not very high.I am so excited to really get going on this.
