Motivation Mojo

Sunday, September 04, 2011

So, thus far I've lost 60 lbs since March 8, 2011. Recently, within the past 3 weeks I just couldn't find my motivation. I've been kinda scared that I may never find it again. I've done searches online, in Spark, in magazines, books, tv, DVD's etc to jump start myself again. Nothing for the last 3 weeks. Thankfully today as I was reading Popular Blogs on Spark I ran across a blog by Goddessellie07 - "What can you do in 1,095 days? My story, Advice, and (lots of ) pictures..."
If you've slowed down in your motivation, check out her story. She includes 3 yrs worth of details that are very helpful.
I found 2 other possible tools to help while looking through "Secrets" in Spark. Two suggestions I will try are :
1. Use a calendar to mark days you exercise. Use markers, highlighters, crayons etc to achieve very colorful results and be sure you exercise everyday.
2. Make a poster to motivate you - use pics and words to show things you want (rewards), goals, etc.
I don't remember who suggested these things in Secrets, but am very grateful to them.
So now I've got to put my new MOJO to work. Wish me luck!

    I think 60 pounds is quite an accomplishment, I just want to get that out there right away.

    I understand about losing your mojo. I do that with cooking/eating. I just get tired of the whole meal planning/cooking/eating thing. Nothing even sounds good to me at that point. So I understand. Just know your mojo always comes back. Don't know where it sneaks off to, maybe taking a vacation (you know, that trip around the world we would all love to take) or on a business trip. Who knows, who cares...what's important is it always comes back.

    What to do while it's temporarily unavailable? Don't go backwards. Hold steady.

    You can do this. Just grab hold of the side of the boat and let us carry you for a while if you have to. But DON'T let go.
