Motivation...oh where can you be?!

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Let me start by saying that it's nice to be back after months away and seeing all of my SP friends doing so well! I've missed you!

Now for the blah...this has been a rough year for me on so many levels. I don't want to get into the nitty-gritty of things through a public blog, but lets just say it's been tough.

I have let myself fall back into poor eating habits and my exercise has been the equivalent of walking to run errands and beach-combing. I've been trying to distract myself from my issues by focusing my energy on my daughter, school and work.

I know that if I felt better about myself my issues might not seem quite so overwhelming, but like my title states, the motivation is nowhere to be found. I have good intentions on some days and I start making plans like a workout schedule and prepping for a cleanse but the first sight of sugar and all those plans go flyin' right out the window.

We packed up and moved from our "cave" to a bright house just two blocks from the beach. I hoped that this fresh place would also give me a fresh kick in the pants. Unfortunately, that has yet to happen. I know that most of that kick has got to come from myself.

I need to recommit to the healthy lifestyle I feel passionate about. Staying connected with others that are motivated will help, maybe some of the motivation will rub off. I'll be back soon with an update.

Wishing you all the best!

    I can totally relate to what stress does to my motivation! I'm trying right now to keep it from getting ahead as well! We can do it! In the past it has taken me alot of honesty about my eating and exercise habits to keep from denial and communicating with fellow sparkers! We can do this!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
