i’m having the hardest time staying focused on my health goals lately. i know what i want and how to get there, but staying on the path to those goals has been a challenge. and with the holidays coming up, i definitely want to get it under control now.
i try to stick to a schedule and i’ll do well for the first few days of the week, but then i get tired…and the excuses come pouring out of me. by thursday, i all but give up. then i start fresh on monday full steam ahead. but the same thing keeps happening…
i see it. i’m not oblivious to the fact that i’m making mistakes and giving up. i’m not surprised that my clothes are fitting tighter. i’m not shocked when i see pictures of myself and notice the changes.
i feel like i’ve lost my motivation again. in a lot of ways, things are going well for me. school is great. i’m busy but loving it. i’m over my cold and feeling physically better. i have time to devote to meal planning and exercise. i’m just not doing it like i should.
so i’m just going to take it week by week. i’m going to plan a few days of swimming (and actually show up) and workout for at least thirty minutes a day on the other days. this week, i’m going to shoot for working out 5 days. i’m going to watch my portions and make healthy choices. it’s not hard to do. i just have to do it.
