Losing steam...

Help me, I'm losing steam!

I have been really struggling to stay motivated. I went to the gym today and on Wednesday, but it was like pulling teeth to get my arse out the door. I was practically dragging myself there against my own will. haha

I only have one week left of bootcamp and I've gained a few pounds in the 10 day hiatus I took. It snowballed from missing one class to missing a whole week or more of tracking and exercising. It's amazing how easy it is to just skip once, skip twice, and then next thing you know you haven't been to gym in nearly two weeks!

I did go to my last few classes, and I won't be missing any more, but I'm struggling to get back to tracking and drinking water, and ultimately CARING about weight loss.

I think a good week back on plan may cure this motivation lull, but we'll see. I have a really busy week coming up with practicum and whatnot, but that will help me plan and journal, because I have to be packing lunches the night before.


At least I did a killer spin & weights class tonight, to counteract the two big vegan cookies I ate today :P


  1. Hang in there P.J. Go back and read your posts when you were trying to decide if you should join this bootcamp. You wanted it soooooo bad. I think re-reading those posts and reading your feelings about the sucess you have had since might give you the motivation you are looking for.

    This is the final push.... Go kick some ass!

  2. You're right!!! I was thinking that this morning while I was in the shower. I have been reading them this morning at work, and I am inspired to give that final week all I've got :)


  3. You are a star. Now show 'em what you got!

  4. Action before motivation.

    Motivation is fickle, the weather, the amount of sleep, hormones, dealing with work, family, traffic, all that stuff affects my motivation.

    It is cliched but just do it. Take action, move, plan, drink that water.

    The motivation will come back :)
