Motivation seems to be a missing element in this journey. Right now for me it's totally missing. I get totally disgusted with myself. I cringe at where I'm at. I see something that inspires me. I gather up my desires. It is all good. I'm gung ho to roll with this. I start. I hold it together for a few days, maybe even a week or two. And then I totally fall apart. I spiral into a woman that spins wildly out of control. There isn't one set trigger that causes me to plumment from my healthy choices. Sometimes it's a weekend off/away. Sometimes it's just life that keeps me eating crazily. Sometimes it's my self worth and the fact that food is my friend...my go to when I'm feeling down. It's like I'm being bombarded on all sides. Voices are screaming at me to "eat eat eat" and I cave. The cake tasted good. The ice cream tasted good. Even if something didn't taste good I still chowed it down like a starving child. It sickens me to think about what I'm doing to myself. It sickens me to see my lack of motivation. I lack the motivation to get up off the couch and start running. I lack the motivation to pull my bike out and ride it. I lack motivation. Without this motivation I spin in circles.
I want to end this mad plummet. I want to be thin and happy. Just this week I've stumbled across a few blogs and posts and whatnot of people that have reached goal or are at least at a place where they are happy with their weight. They are trained to run marathons. They are competing in Triathlons. They are absolutely awe inspiring because they went from overweight couch potato and have transformed themselves into women that are gorgeous. Their bodies have responded so well to their activities...they are svelte and thin (yeah, I know they still have their body issues and some parts of their bodies may never be perfect...but seriously!). They are active and put their exercise first. And most importantly, when you see pictures of them......you can see the inner peace and happiness emmanating from their eyes. It's glaringly obvious. I chose those two to link. However, there are more out there. I see a spark of life that is there. I had that spark when I lost my weight. I've lost that spark again as I've regained. I'm not happy......I WANT that sparkle back!!!!!!
My motivator this week is that sparkle!!!!!!!
