I’m having a small lack of motivation going on. In the last three days, I skipped two workouts and gained 1.5 pounds. I’m letting personal issues weigh me down and take my focus off something I value highly, my health. For me this could lead to a vicious cycle. When I don’t live my life according to my values, my self-esteem lowers. –> Low self-esteem lowers my motivation. –> And then I am less likely to live according to my values. –> There’s the cycle.
The key for me is to remember what I value and to live accordingly. This morning, I walked on the treadmill for 50 minutes and logged my breakfast. My plan is to log everything I eat today and for the upcoming days. I’m back on track for my fitness plan (couch to 5k) by switching today’s rest day with yesterday’s missed workout.
Rough spot endured and accepted. Focus. Smooth sailing right now. Accepted.
