Oh Motivation, where are you?!?!

Saturday, April 14, 2012

Motivation, where are you?? I need you. I can't do this without you. I'm not strong enough if you are not next to me on this journey.
I seem to have misplaced you along the way after being sick for a few weeks and although I have tried looking for you everywhere I haven't had any luck. Perhaps I should take out the good ol' pictures I dislike seeing so much and then I will find you? I need to find you, because I do not want to give up. I have worked too hard to get to where I am at today. I have so much to live for, and I am determined to find you Motivation, where ever it is you are berried or hidden at. Just wait and see..I'm coming for you.

    You're gonna do it, girl ...you know you will.

    I have found a great source of motivation comes from the SP ticker. I know a lot of people with a lot of weight to lose prefer making the ticker 10 or 20 pounds at a time so they won't feel overwhelmed. But I have 90 pounds to lose and now that mine is set from 213-123 rather than a little at a time it seems even more motivating. When I can see those numbers right there on my computer it makes me really want to keep going.

    You've got this.

    You have to remind yourself of your goals and what reaching them means to you. Sometimes it's difficult, but if you work toward reaching your goals even when you aren't feeling to motivated, you won't regret it. :)

    I wrote a long blog about motivation a while ago, but here's my take ... Motivation is fickle. Motivation comes and goes like a feather in the wind. But what you can do is dedicate yourself to your goals. Treat them like work, if you have to. It's not as fun, but not every step of this journey is going to be fun, nor should it be. Sometimes it sucks and it's miserable and we want to give up.

    Some days, I don't want to go work because I'm just not feeling motivated. But I have to go, because the consequences are too dire. Not making enough money that paycheck, getting in trouble with my boss, looking unreliable to my coworkers. None of those things are worth not going to work just because I'm not motivated. So I go anyway.

    I make plans, I tell people of my commitment, I ask people to hold me to it - that when the motivation is gone, there's tangible consequences. I'm not feeling motivated to work out today, but I told my roommate I would, so he's harassing me til I get it all done.

    Make your own "motivation." I know you can do this!
