I tend to have “motivation swings”.  Much like mood swings, these go up and down and sometimes sideways.  I tend to get really excited about something and have tons of motivation and then when it comes to seeing things through, motivation goes out the window!  I don’t know why this happens.  I think sometimes it’s the amount of time it’ll take.  Sometimes it’s my procrastination.  Sometimes I’m down right lazy.  But it’s time to get movin’ and stay motivated.

I recently found out I have PCOS – poly-cystic ovary syndrome.  It helps explain the weight gain over the last year and maybe the depression which keeps lingering.  It’s a hormone imbalance.  By losing weight and making life style changes, I should get back to normal.  It’s the motivation I need to kick my butt into gear.  And when I’m starting to feel better about myself, I know motivation to do other things will kick in.

This lack of motivation has also hindered the list I posted a while ago.  I’ve done only a few things from it.  But it’s time to get my butt in gear, so here we go!

How do you get and stay motivated?  


One Response to “Motivation”

    I can’t wait to read peoples responses, ’cause I think that MOST people struggle with this! I know I do! I know that it takes about 40 times of doing something consistently to make it a habit, but usually my motivation dies around 15-25 times of doing it… Then I fall out of practice, then after a while I beat myself up for not being able to do it, and I start all over! IT SUCKS!! I am trying to be realistic with goals and making checklists that are pretty! That helps some, but not completely…
