It’s amazing how difficult it actually is to get back in the swing of things with blogging after taking so many months off. I’m kicking myself now for doing that. It doesn’t matter how many times I write it down, or how many alarms I set on my phone to set time aside to write. Getting my Groove back hasn’t been so groovy, man. You would think it would be easy! But, it hasn’t been. Not for lack of want to. The desire and want to is there. Somewhere my Motivation hasn’t caught up to the other yet.
C’mon motivation! You’re holding up progress!
Got to the gym this week … once. See, can’t even get my butt to the gym! However, I did walk 4 out of 5 mornings, just not at the gym. Still, have the weekend to go as well. It does help that my insurance will award points for exercise routines counted via an app toward gift cards, merchandise, and gadgets. I’m currently working toward a Fitbit. Have wanted one of those silly things since they came out. I like working for points toward a goal. Gives me something to tangibly work toward and to be able to visibly see my points go up after my routine is awesome.
Anyone else with depression will know that self motivating can be so hard some days because of pain, insecurities, and feeling hopeless. Sometimes the blame can be pointed to the lack of all those feel-good chemicals in the brain not going where they are supposed to. This is where medication can help and get those chemicals traveling in the right directions. Because finding the right medication may just put a whole new light on things. Making it easier to motivate.
Or, you could be like me and flip-flop from no energy, no motivation one day to waking up super motivated, filled with an overload of energy that you just can’t seem to sit still for 2 seconds. These are the days I genuinely feel like a force of nature.
I just wish that everything I touched didn’t look like a tornado flew through. So much runs through my mind at one time, I wonder if I’m coming or going. This is when I make To-Do lists. I am a believer in them for my personal benefit. I also journal just about everything on these days. Simply to get it onto paper and out of my head.
Well, I’m not finding my motivation today. I’ll just do what I can a little at a time. Hope you’ve found your motivation today.
