So, I took that step this morning onto the scale. My attempt to get back on track. The results of that step were not as bad as I had expected which in itself was a little motivating! I made a commitment last night to jump on the elliptical this morning and I kept my word! I will not call it the strongest workout I have ever done but it all starts with that single step.
Tomorrow is another day…we have miles to go, one step at a time!
I need a push, a jolt of sorts to get moving. Recently I seem to have an overall blah attitude. I seem to lack motivation. I did a quick google search of the word “motivation” and that indeed confirmed that I lack it!
- The reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.
- The general desire or willingness of someone to do something.
Today I was productive, changed sheets, did laundry and took the vacuum apart and cleaned it up. Very exciting! During the week I did the shopping and other needed activities around the house. Everyone got to practice and lessons and everyone had meals provided daily. Outside of the normal necessary things, I did nothing. Not only did I not workout, I could not stop eating these tasty jalapeno potato chips that were on sale. That makes for a bad combination. I am very proud of the 40 pounds that I lost and can not allow myself to slide backward.
So my head tells me a change needs to be made. Now to get my body to get on board! I need to get focused! No more chips, I can not be trusted if they are in the house ;-). I believe the weather has a big roll to play in my mood, grey cold and dreary. A nice sunny day would be helpful but I can not make excuses. Tomorrow I will start with a small step, one onto the scale. From there I commit to time on the elliptical machine. After that, well let’s just take it slow :-).
