Warning! Bad mood!

I'm trying so hard not to be negative anymore. It isn't a good headspace to be in and frankly who wants to read a blog filled with complaining.

That being said, I am in a real funk the last few days. I haven't felt like posting, exercising or caring what I've shoved in my mouth. It's like having one day (Friday) that was out of my control has completely derailed me.

Why do I do this to myself? I want to loose this weight. I think only you ladies (and a few gents) can understand how much I want to get this weight off. I just loose the motivation for a few days and I feel like I'll never get back on track. I know that that isn't true, because I do get back on the wagon again. I guess I just feel blah.

Right now I'm trying to decide whether or not to get on the treadmill this morning. I normally don't walk on Tuesdays because I have yoga. But I've done so little in the way of exercise this week that maybe I should double up. I'll have to have some brekkie first and then make my decision.


  1. Hi
    I too feel lacklustre and not wanting to exercise or even MOVE!
    Hoping the inauguration today will inspire me !!That is exciting-can't wait.
    Not to be rude but "losing" weight and "lose" has one O,not two! Sorry to be annoying!
    All the best !!!

  2. It might be simply a bad case of the January Blahs ! The holidays are over, winter is in full swing and if feels like years till spring. The weather keeps us inside a lot, there are colds and just plain sameness. It might help to find some kind of mini thing to look forward to, point your focus towards and let the momentum motivate you. Valentines day can a good one- if not the whole love focus , then perhaps a heart healthy thing. It might do the trick .

  3. I've so been going through the same thing. But each day is a new day, we just keep on trucking and keep doing our best. Eventually you'll turn a corner if you do.

  4. :) get on the treadmill, you'll feel better.

    today I'm wishing I had a treadmill here, so I could watch the proceedings in Washington AND be getting in some cardio.

  5. Anonymous: Please feel free to correct my spelling any time you like. Lose is one of those words I'm never sure if I've got right. Incorrect spelling and grammar are my pet peeves too!

    ISF: You are absolutely right about the January blahs. This is a notoriously bad month for me. I'm going to figure out a short term "treat" to look forward to. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Linda: Thanks for your support. You are awesome and it is so true that sometimes you just have to keep plowing through!

    Kate: I hope things start going better for you soon. Thank you so much for your words of support. I didn't get on the treadmill, but I did go for a job interview. Just another way to get out of this funk. Get proactive to improve my situation!!

    Thank you ladies all for your wonderful words of encouragement! You have helped more than you can know!

  6. I am in the same funky mood. I hate how I sabotage myself. Being negative is honestly embedded in me.
    Honestly we can do it. It's just freaking hard.
    We will get there. Even it if takes longer then planned.
    Here's to us being awesome one day soon!
