Motivation?

Friday, October 05, 2012

So this week is kinda kicking my butt! I know this is about to be TMI but whatever thats what blogging is all about. So I started my period and I was 2 weeks late so its been a crazy one, and the cramping has been killing my mood, my energy and my motivation. The last two days have been sooooo hard for me to get up and work out. I almost said forget it today but I looked at my husband and said babe I need to work out, but I have no motivation can I get some from you, he said get up lets do it together. Thank god for that man, he is totally my pillar when I need him to be. So instead of skipping today I ended up doing 20 mins of cardio kickboxing and 10 mins of strength/core, I feel better for doing it but cant believe how close I came to just giving up. Plus I totally been wanting to binge on some horrible food but I keep thinking to myself thats not who I want to be thats not the lifestyle I want to live. I have given up lots of things in my life that are harder for some people to do, ex is cigarettes. I have been trying to view my approach at unhealthy eating like the other bad things I have done to my body!
I have no idea how many people acutally look at my blog or even read them here or there, but please if you do tell me what motivates you when the day is going bad and you just feel like you dont have it in you to do anything! Looking at my daughter today telling me how pretty and awesome I am helped me get through the day ( she is 2 so its really cute when she says it ) emoticon

    Sometimes it is sooooo hard but if you can push yourself to move for at least 10 minutes you KNOW you will feel better. And sometimes that 10 minutes turns into longer. You have an amazing husband and you are an amazing person too. Hang in there...you CAN do it!

    I completely agree about that time of the month cravings and sluggish crampy feeling!!What motivates me is 1 you actually burn more calories on your period because your metabolism is higher so I can't wait to get on the scale at the end of that horrible week and 2 I just keep telling myself "IT'S JUST FOOD, IT'S NOT WORTH MY LIFE!!!" Keep up the great work!!Awesome Hubby too!!
