I haven't been highly motivated lately. Don't know why, but this is not unusual for me. Fact is, it happens periodically and I'm always a little puzzled. I really think I spend too much time pondering the "why" (which just distracts me from getting going again), instead of doing something. ANYTHING! It's like the oft-paraphrased Newton's Law - A body at rest tends to stay at rest. A body in motion tends to stay in motion.
This action (or lack thereof) also spawns what I call the "whiny babies" who constantly whine "I don't want to." Generally, I watch hours of TV or surf the web. I could exercise, clean house, get out of the house, call someone, go to the driving range, swing a club in the yard...the list is pretty endless. Yet, there is no motion. Body at rest...
I have discovered that if I will MAKE myself do some small thing, suddenly I'm in motion and I do the next small thing and the next and then the bigger thing.
My weight loss has stalled. Why? Because I'm doing NOTHING. Not drinking water, not exercising, not watching what I eat. So, I get the whiny babies and do more NOTHING. LOL It's pretty laughable. I'm like Farmer's Insurance, at 64-years-old, "I've seen a thing or two." Therefore, I know how to get rid of the NOTHINGS. Do SOMETHING.
Thanks for listening to the whiny baby. I'm thinking about doing something. That's the first step, so long as I don't get stalled there.
