Needless to say, my weight loss has taken a hiatus and I'm stuck staring at the same damn number on the scale. Thankfully I'm getting my sugar binging under control and my eating has been a LOT better than it was. If i hadn't then I probably would have started gaining by now. My motivation has been so lacking that I've even googled "motivation" to see if I can find some on the internet. I didn't but I did find some advice from a fellow blogger, Joel Runyon. He says,
I think this was more frustrating for me because that's exactly what I did. I started with a huge bang and dragged my entire family with me. I was determined to get things done and I was doing it! But still, somewhere along the line my motivation went awol and I'm standing here floundering, not getting anything done. After reading Joel's post I realized that I needed to just do it and keep doing it until it's habit."Motivation is overrated. Get disciplined instead. In short: motivation is fleeting. Those people who who depend on motivation consistently start out with a big bang and fail as soon as something gets hard. As soon as the motivation dries up, they quit. The people who accomplish things get disciplined."
My resolve for the month of September is to get over myself and just do it. I don't want to go to bed at night unless I know that I did at least one workout that day, whether it was running, burpies, or throwing weights around my front yard. I just need to do something everyday. Luckily I have great trainers that recognized my struggle and are putting steps in place to make sure I succeed. Ultimately though, it's up to me and only me. If I want the results I have to put in the work.
