Feeling very unmotivated

It really is tough to get back in the saddle when you haven't done something in a while. For me, a while can be as short as two weeks. I haven't been motivated to go to the gym and work out.

There.

I said it.

At 5:00pm, I would much rather turn left at the traffic light than head straight and go home. One might suggest earlier rising. Not a very good for an insomniac like me. Getting a good night's rest is catch as catch can for me. Melatonin is my friend, but even it lets me down sometimes.

I'm fully recovered from the jet lag of traveling so there's no risk of me toppling over while doing a capoeira maneuver or pulling a muscle lifting 20 lbs. of bar bell. No risk at all. So I'm thinking, I'm not feeling the Body Combat or the Body Pump. When you do something for so long (over a year), even when they change up the moves every few months, it gets to be a tedious task.

At the same time, the motivation to eat better hasn't quite made the cut either. I know I need to take control. I need to own it. I need... I need... I need... Gosh, I sound selfish.

Next week Wednesday is Ash Wednesday. Like the cradle Catholic that I am, I plan on sacrificing...putting the kibosh some self-indulgent behaviors during Lent. It's 40 days. I can do 40 days. I just need to set some goals. In those goals will have to be some removal of certain things and adding in other certain things. Guess I better start eating those eleventeen million gazillion jelly belly jelly beans I bought, huh?!?!? Kidding. I'll save that for Easter Sunday!

Maybe I should crack open that Jillian Michaels wii thing I bought while in DC...

I know how you feel. I woke up early to work out and man, I really wanted to sleep in. I just keep thinking that at the end of my (hopefully) long life, I will be glad that I woke up and went to the gym all those mornings. I also have a HUGE sweet tooth, but I try to limit what foods I bring in the house so that I'm not tempted. Good luck with your Lenten goals!

Its finally warm enough to start running here in Ky again so I have no excuse and so far I havent made any. I cant work out in a gym though it is very tedious

I've been very unmotivated, too. I hate my bike. It hates me. Wish Jillian would come kick me in my behind. LOL Good luck! I wish you success!

I keep passing my treadmill on the way upstairs. What I need to do is get ON it! Wishing you the best and hoping I can do the same!
