i need some serious motivation. to stick. for a long time. where in the world do i find it?
i’ve played sports (mostly lacrosse) my entire life and have always been part of a team. working out never felt like working out when it was doing something i loved. now that i’m (tear) no longer officially part of a team i need to find something else i love. ASAP. because this whole, “i’m just going to go work out because i need to” thing isn’t working for me. i’ll get into a little groove for maybe 3/4 days max, and then i lose all hope. AHHHHH.
disclaimer: i’m not complaining about my body type or calling myself fat. i’ve been pretty blessed with good genes and a quick metabolism my whole life. yet, when you’ve worked out your whole life and suddenly that comes crashing violently into a brick wall… you can tell.
i’ve been trying to eat healthy and do a relatively decent job, yet when you’re broke as a joke you gotta do what you gotta do. fresh fruits and veggies are EXPENSIVE! can’t wait for my first big girl paycheck so i don’t feel so pathetic! 🙂
i really like pinterest and i see all those extremely fit, tan girls in their skimpy spandex and for me, that’s not as realistic as i’d like it to be. sometimes (when i’m having a super skinny day) i feel like i could be those girls. then sometimes, (when i’m eating popcorn for dinner) i realize i may be the furthest thing from being them. ha. it’s a vicious cycle.
this is where i’m calling to all of you people. help a sister out. i need motivation. of any kind. a few words, a favorite workout, a new recipe to try. seriously ANYTHING will help at this point. i’m begging. i bought this book at costco today to try and jumpstart some good habits. i’ll let you know if there are any worth sharing!
