Yesterday, as I was laying in bed not wanting to get up because well... Duh I was exhausted! I was thinking of all the things I was going to do. Laundry needed to be put away more laundry needed to be folded and put away and more laundry needed to be washed and dried. Rooms needed to be straightened up and for sure with out a doubt grocery shopping needed to be done. But notice in there I never once said exercising needed to be done. So I had though I can wait till later to shred it out, it doesn't need to be done right away. I was going to be putting it off till later and honestly if I was putting it off it probably would not have been done at all. Finally I thought to myself, stop being stupid get your arse dressed in your work out clothes and do your damn exercises! Then I started to think what is my motivation, what is everyone else's motivation? Why do we make excuses for not doing our exercises? Why do we make excuses for not eating right? I mean really if you make the choice to exercise and eat right and loose weight, why are you making excuses to not get this shit done?
As you can see I get hard on myself sometimes. But for good reason. I have attempted weight loss so many time and then I gave up, I let myself slack and fail. I had come to the realization that I was going to always be fat and there was nothing I could do about it, because every time there was an attempt to loose weight I failed miserably. Then I don't know I guess you can say something clicked or maybe it was because Holly Rigsby from Fit Yummy Mummy contacted me and offered me and a program that would work to help loose weight and I only needed to dedicate 15 minutes a day to do it. So I decided you know I will give this a try, whats there to loose. The first couple days were really hard since it had been so long since I had even attempted to exercise. But I kept at it.. I got discouraged after about 2 weeks because I wasn't having any weight loss, but the I was having inch loss. Then I realized I wasn't eating right I was still eating horribly like I had before. But once I started eating right the weight started to come off. I kept at it and even on the days were I was starving and ate to much or days that I didn't have weight loss I kept at it. And well if you have been following my blog then you know that I have had success, and while I have hit a plateau and struggling right now (mostly okay totally because of my eating habits). I am sticking with it because I know I can do this I've come this far!
So what keeps you motivated? What keeps you going?
Have an Oh So Wonderful Day!
