I woke up this morning and my first thought was “It’s Monday already?” It seems like just yesterday I was writing my Monday post, and trying to set my goals for the week. How fast a week goes – especially with work, kids and everything in between.
What I’ve noticed is that I set these GREAT goals for the week – I have a meal plan in place, I have my work out’s handed to me thru the awesome Bob Harper site, yet by Tuesday I’m already struggling to keep up with it. My mind gives up before my body even tells me it has!
It’s not that I’m new to this weight loss thing – I’ve struggled with it before, my entire life in fact. But in the past I was successful. So what is the difference?
I have allowed absolutely anything and everything take precedent over my work out and weight loss goals. I lost my mojo…, how and why???
Motivation is defined as:
- The reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.
- The general desire or willingness of someone to do something.
As I started to look deeper into what motivation really means, I realized that I had lost my desire,
to get back on track. Am I scared? Do I really have what it takes? Am I staying positive? Am I speaking positively?I was talking
myself down soo much (I can’t do this, I don’t have time, and so on..) that I had literally convinced myself that I wasn’t worth it , that I couldn’t do it.
A friend of mine recently asked me to tell her 3 things I LOVE about myself. I thought, and thought, and I honestly had a hard time coming up with anything. I didn’t feel that any part of me (physically or mentally) was soo overly wonderful that I could even mention it. I had spoken so much doubt and negative thoughts to myself that I was literally starting to believe them.
So I have decided that I WILL change that. I will THINK and SPEAK positively about myself, and others.
Tell me something you love about yourself!!
