So, What's on My Mind?

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Well our weekend challenge calls for a task for blogging about “What’s on your Mind”.

So today, with the weather being much nicer, I strapped on my shoes emoticon and I went out for a walk emoticon to ponder my thoughts and to work on my stress level. Work is what is eating at me as of late so hoped it would be a double whammy of sorts.

This is my third round of BLC and I have to admit I feel like I’m a drone. I’m going through the motions but my heart isn’t in it. I am slowly losing but I think it is because of some medication I’m currently on that is suppressing my appetite more than anything else. My exercise minutes are lower but I do continue to do the daily GOYB’s and TNT’s, LCW’s and my own favorite toning exercises. But the steps are dismal. The treadmill is definitely more like the ‘dreadmill’ these days. The alarm goes off, I want to cover my head and there are days I do. I even struggle to log my exercise minutes and food and I know it helps, it works, it keeps the motivation so why do I struggle with it? emoticon

I’m not sure how to change this mindset. I’m not sure if the other stresses are effecting me as well. I continue to be a work in progress. I guess I continue one day at a time. Baby steps and try to be kinder to myself.

I’m open for suggestions as well. Thanks for letting me vent.

    I think this is the hardest time of year. I've certainly been struggling. We'll get through this one day at a time. Hopefully more daylight each evening will help.

    I predict the change to good weather will improve your motivation a lot and all will be set to rights for you

    I've been struggling with motivation too. Up until recently I was so good at tracking fitness minutes (I've been getting some but not as much as before and not as many as I should) and even logging in to SP. Maybe it's the season ... I guess we just keep on keeping on.

    Spring is around the corner. It should help you get your stride back. Yesterday was a wonderful day for a walk. I took advantage of it.

    I echo what Stillwater and Liz has said, and maybe you're trying to fit too much in.
    Review your workouts maybe and don't be so hard on yourself hun.
    Spring is coming and you can get out and walk more in sunshine- sure to lift you.

    If you do suffer from SAD I strongly recommend wrapping up and going for even a short daily stroll, it's been my saviour this winter. Take care emoticon emoticon

    Maybe a touch of SAD? This is the worst time of year- I hope when you can get out into a bit of sun that will help.
    Do you take any time off at spring break?

    Many people are blogging the same thing you are. Perhaps it's just that everyone is so over this winter? I think when the weather gets nicer, it will be easier to get out and move? I'm hoping so anyway............I recently went through the same thing and had to ask myself a serious question........"What am I hoping to gain out of BLC?" I want the healthier lifestyle but it isn't going to happen by itself.........so, I kicked myself a few times, and went and joined the gym......Hoping that gets my own mojo going!

    Hang in there! Spring has to be around the corner somewhere!

    I would never guess you were struggling.
    You always seem so upbeat to me. Mybe it is the health problems, etc., and life in general.
    Jus take it one day at a time,and you will get there. I m a big fanof your's.

    Oh I struggle with motivation too. So tough. I've read in a couple other blogs that "fake till ya make it" works for some. It's worth a try. Go through the motions until the pay off starts to motivate you to do more. emoticon
