where oh where has my motivation gone?

Monday, February 11, 2013

I had such good intention in the beginning of Feb. but somewhere or somehow my motivation up and left me. My exercising took a walk with my food tracking right out the door. They must be enjoying life because they have not returned. So my challenge is to find them again. I am not sure how that is suppose to happen. I know all the tricks like start slow, change one thing at a time,and just do it. In my mind I have good intentions but to put the actions with the thoughts. That is where I am finding it hard to do. I am not totally giving up. I have just had set backs big ones. It takes more than a desire to lose weight and right now all I seem to have is the desire. Oh how I wish I could just make myself move and track and stop putting food in my mouth

    There comes a point where you have to decide if you want to be healthy and lose weight or not. Then do what it takes, motivated or not. Thats where I am right now, I'm just going to have to suck it up and do it, like quitting smoking. Whether or not I "feel" it.

    So you're maintaining for the moment. That's good, it lets your body accustom itself to the changes it has been going through, and when it has done this, you will find the motivation will come back with renewed vigour. Just accept, tread water a while, and wait.

    Call it the winter blogs. Think about summer and how you want to look. Set a goal a small one. Set one for just a week. It is not just a desire to lose weight. It is a passion. You have to make it happen. I get down all the time when my scale don't move ,but I keep going, some times I change things up. I get bored with the same thing. Maybe you need to change up to something that excites you. I think spring will put a bigger spark in me. Good Luck. Have a great day. Find your passion. emoticon

    I understand, once you lose your motivation its hard to get back going. What I think about is my skinny jeans I have hanging in my closet. I hope your "motivation & exercise come knocking at your door soon.

Up and moving

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I am up and moving again. No more sitting and sulking for me. The only way to lose this weight is to do something. So I am doing something. I am trying this new challenge with walking. I am hoping it gets me going. Even if I don't lose a lot of weight with it I know it will make me healthier. Yesterday i went to the Dr. and she said even tough my cholesterol was a little high she wanted to wait a little longer to see if i could bring it down on my own. So there is a challenge. The next time I go there will not even be that discussion. God has blessed me with so much and I need to do my part and get my body healthy.

    I'm glad your doctor is giving you more time before doing anything further. Now you have even more incentive to slim down. You can do it!

    One foot in front of the other and you'll get where you want to go. Okay, so that may sound cliche, but it's not meant to. Sometimes we have to realize that to get going we have TO START. emoticon Just keep your faith and don't beat yourself up for being human emoticon

    You are RIGHT! I hadn't thought of it until you said it in your blog but life and our bodies are a wonderful gift and if we don't exercise and eat right and take care of them, we are basically spitting in the giver's face. Its like giving your child a stack of PS3 games, then later finding them scattered about the floor with no covers, mixed up and scratched, treated with disregard. Only its even worse, because our bodies and life are such a BIGGER gift...

    just look at it as practice. The more we practice the better we get. Just keep at it, making sure you track all your food and not cheating yourself by not tracking. You will see where your weak spots are and will be able to conquer them. I am still struggling with the nite time grazing. Learning to conquer that monster.

I am back

Saturday, January 26, 2013

I don't know why I have to keep coming back. I wish I could stay on the track without falling off but I do and I did again. So here I am ready to rty again. This time I was only a few weeks so that is good.

I am ready and motivated to get started. I am going to try to take things slow and not expect to lose fast. I want to change things for good not to just lose and gain it all back.

My goal for Feb. Is to be more active and do ST 3 time a week. I plan to track my food and write everything down. So here is to Feb.

    You can do it! Just made a point to do something everyday and track your food every day...no matter how bad you think you did. It will help you find a balance. It did for me.

Big hug! Good to see you!
