Who Stole My Motivation?

I need to lose around 6-8 pounds. It seems like a simple enough and it should be even easier to maintain, but I don’t know what the hell is wrong with me! I know this is going to sound like an excuse and I am well aware of what excuses are…but I digress… lately I have been experiencing a serious pain in my left leg. It varies from tingly to sharp from my hip to foot and my right knee feels as if it wants to pop at any minute if I bend it for any period of time… even driving for longer than an hour has become an issue. I am now patiently awaiting a referral from my primary care physician to see a specialist so I can figure out what the heck is going on and more importantly what can be done so I can at least attempt to be active.

Before I started having issues with my leg and knee I was aware of my sedentary lifestyle and as much as I felt that I should change it for some reason I just could not. After my son was born I started working out, but it only lasted a few days. Most recently the hubs and I started P90x and that lasted about a day for me…the hubs started working out in the morning before work so I no longer had a buddy. I’ve often heard that if you can do something for 2 weeks it will become a habit, but I have NO idea how to get myself to the 2 week mark! Shoot if I can make it 1 full week that would be an accomplishment for me.

  1. It takes a lot of mental motivation to stay on it. I go through phases of working out and get my lazy kicks, but I always get back into the mode to do something. Have you tried non-traditional workout methods, like belly dancing/pole dancing?
