Motivation

Motivation. It’s a slippery little sucker. One minute it’s there and you’re bouncing through the world on a mission, the next it’s gone and you’re slumped on the couch stuffing your face with dark chocolate, unable to even pick up your knitting needles.

This is pretty much i.e. an accurate description of, what my life has been like lately. I have barely the energy to get myself out of bed, let alone jump into all those goals I set myself at the start of the year.

My eating has gone down the tubes despite my taking the plunge and signing up for a 6-month contract with Weight Watchers. I now weigh more now than my weigh-in at my first meeting.

My knit from stash and not purchase new yarn goal has gone by the wayside also, although not to the same extent as my poor eating habits.

I have not done any gardening since my last post on it. I have not planted any food even though I have some seeds waiting and some potting mix that has not even been put into the planter boxes.

My house is a pig-sty. With probably more stuff in it than when I wrote the post on a simplified household.

Cross stitch? Sewing? What even are these?

I have decided though, that despite all the above negatives I will be positive. Instead of focusing on what I have not done, I am looking towards what I want to achieve and how I can get there. Here’s to future posts about my accomplishments rather than my failures.

How do you keep motivation flowing?

    Try to keep positive & look at achievements. After all the long terms at school my house is mess too. As for weight watchers it can work, but in my case I had to cut much out it was unsustainable , as my diet is fairly low fat & I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth. If your heading into spring & summer it will soon be salad & gardening time. You will feel better, I normally do. Good luck.

      Hey there and thanks for getting in touch! Yes, positivity is where I’m choosing to spend my energy and I’ve just cleaned my house (around the clutter!) so that’s a step in the right direction! As for Weight Watchers I mostly eat what they call filling and healthy foods so so long as I’m not eating emotionally, I’m ok. 🙂 It’s actually heading into winter as I’m in Australia but I love winter. The cooler temperatures make it far more comfortable for doing things! 🙂 Thanks you for your advice and well wishes. J x
