Today, I read this great post over at Steady Mom about self-discipline and it described how I feel perfectly! My struggle isn’t so much about making dinner as much as it is about my workouts.
I. Just. Don’t. Want. To!
I often get to this point. I am sailing high for months on my workouts, getting them in 6 days of the week. I like to take a day rest in order to let my body recover. And then it happens.
I get tired of the mundane. I get tired of having to work so hard to get the weight off and keep it off. I find myself in a pity party due to the fact that I am not like most people who can workout for 20-30 minutes and get results. I have to workout for a minimum of 45 minutes or it does nothing.
Stupid glucose intolerance.
I just want to eat sweets again. I get so bossed around by a silly brownie!
And then when I let up just a little bit, like I did this last week, not giving my all, the number on the scale goes up. One little let up and I gain a pound.
And telling myself that it doesn’t matter doesn’t work. I pay my $1 dues to my husband and try to find the want to to go on.
That is why I loved the post from Steady Mom. She gives some awesome tips on how to build your self-discipline muscle. And my favorite is:
Do It Anyway!
That isn’t how she said it exactly but that is how I hear myself talking. Just do it anyway.
So, today at 4:00pm CST, I will be heading into my personal training group and giving my all. If you think about me, say a little prayer for increased motivation. I want to be here for my kids, and I don’t want anymore set backs.
The scale this week:
How have you been on your journey? Facing any setbacks this week?
