"Feeling unmotivated is what happens when you're not really making conscious choices at all -- you're just responding mindlessly to various triggers in your environment, or operating on autopilot based on old habits and conditioned behavior." Coach Dean Anderson -- Sparkpeople.com
This describes the base of my struggle. Triggers, old habits and conditioned behavior ... especially my struggle to stick with MY plan in the face of others' "plans" (their "plans" are more fun, less demanding, taste better, don't involve sweat & sore muscles or 2 showers/day, etc.) BUT following my plan is awesome: smaller bod, better attitude, pride in my self-discipline, hopes for a longer, healthier life. A no-brainer! So why is it such a struggle?
