Not kidding. All of a sudden it has completely disappeared! Why does that happen? I literally have the motivation of a sloth on Xanax. Can I just on the sofa with a blankie?
First, I keep finding reasons to put off my workouts. I’m too busy, too tired, etc. and then before I know it, I’ve missed three days. 😬 No bueno. Then I feel guilty about it which makes me even more unmotivated. It turns into a stupid cycle. I know you get it.
Second, I’ve been lazy at logging my food. I get busy and don’t take the time to do. So since it’s not written down, I’m eating more crap than I should. Again, no bueno. I don’t want to blow all the work I’ve already done but can’t seem to shake this sense of lethargy and crappy attitude.
Does that happen to anyone else when the weather changes? This is a first for me, although I’ve never worked on getting healthy and losing weight before. I tried reminding myself that this is a journey and I get to pick where I go.
Am I getting complacent because I’ve lost 20 pounds and now don’t think I need to do the work? If I don’t put in the effort, it’s all going to come back. Maybe I just needed to write it down to remind myself?
I keeping trying to pinpoint what’s making me feel so blah, but haven’t found it yet. Maybe it’s time for a therapy tune up. Sometimes having someone to talk it out with really helps you get your mind sorted.
So this morning, I got up, pushed play and made an appointment with my therapist. If I don’t do something, I’ll fall back into my old ways and before you know it, the 20 pounds will be back with a few extra to boot.
What do you do to stay motivated? How do you break out of a slump??
