I feel i have lost my way lately. With this blog, healthy eating and life in general. I haven’t been watching what i eat or working out. I’ve put on a whole stone from when i feel i was ‘happy’ with my body. It’s making me feel down because i don’t feel happy in my own skin. I don’t feel attractive, i don’t feel like going out and i don’t really have an excitement for life. Now don’t get me wrong, i know i’m not huge. But i’m not happy either and that’s what bothers me more than what my number on the scales is.
Janetha posted an amazing post the other day, and you just have to read that to see what i’m trying to say about slacking.
I have no motivation to workout or eat healthy really. I’m feeling like everything’s a chore and i’m way too tired to even care. It’s annoying me (and the bf) because i just feel so down all the time and don’t want to do anything. I need to snap out of it and get some energy back!!
Here’s what i think is contributing to my lack of motivation and energy:
-Not having a work life balance. I work long hours and i’m often tired so on my days off, i just want to rest and not do anything.
-I don’t get much fresh air. I drive and get the bus to work then i’m in a hot spa all day and then i got home, cook and go to bed.
-I’m eating the wrong type of foods and too much of it. My general meals are ok but snacks and bad!
-I think of a workout as a chore, no to de-sress and me time. I feel rushed to get a workout in so i don’t bother.
-I’d rather stay in bed and cuddle than get up early to workout.
So i’m trying to change these things. I’m starting to change the way i think and feel. Here was breakfast this morning;
2x weetabix, a handful of clusters, soya milk, cinnamon and soya yogurt. Also a mug of coffee unpictured.
I then took the dogs out for a few minutes and took some deep breaths of fresh air!
Today i’m going to focus on being happier 🙂
Any tips for motivation? How do you get out when you’re stuck in a rut?
