Good morning! This post comes to you at the bright and early hour of 6:24 am. Sad story--I'm already at work. This has been my life story for the past two weeks. Here's something you all should know about me: I am NOT a morning person. I would sleep till 9 or 10 everyday if you'd let me! So if this post is all over the place, it's because I'm freakishly tired. :)
I've come to a stalled place in my progress with working out and losing weight. My motivation is gone. I've fallen into bad habits. I've stopped tracking calories, and even worse I am overeating and I know it and I don't care enough to stop. This is bad, people. Very bad indeed.
It's time to reevaluate my priorities. I need to find a way to kick my butt in gear and get excited again. Coming up with a list of challenges with set completion dates has helped me in the past. I think that's the best solution for me now. I've been discussing with hubster the possibility of running one race per month like Ann from Twelve in Twelve did. I really like the idea. Races keep me motivated and on track. I'm going to find a bunch of races I want to do and update you on them soon. January's race is already complete--yay Ragnar!
Another idea that I would like to incorporate is a reward system. My best friend (you will remember her from my many hiking pictures from last summer) has an awesome family and her sister gave her a bunch of little presents for Christmas. The catch was that she could only open them once she achieved some goals that she would set for herself. It's a great way to motivate! I just need hubster to buy me some awesome stuff that I want really bad. Or go buy the stuff myself and wrap it up and torment myself with my desire to open them RIGHT NOW. :) That should do the trick...
In any case, I'm going to take it a week at a time. Anyone can be perfect at something for a week. I would like to be perfect this week at working out and tracking calories. I didn't track calories yesterday, so I'll have to start today. Here's to a great week!
