WW: Motivation

Motivation is a funny thing.  Sometimes I'm full of it (motivation that is) and sometimes it is no where to be found, which is where my Weight Watchers motivation currently is.  At first I stressed out about it.  I know I'd like to lose a few pounds, so why am I refusing to count points and stay on plan?  I really don't have an answer.  But for the first time, I told myself that is okay.  Better to try to limit eating out and eat more healthy in general than halfheartedly diet to only become more disappointed that the weight isn't coming off like it should, right? 

The good news is that my motivation isn't completely gone in all aspects.  I have still been running the C25K program after taking a few days break for a mega blister.  And that is making me happy.  I like pushing myself on the runs and knowing that I've completed another hard workout.  To be honest, there have been days that I "should" have ran per the schedule and I just didn't feel like it.  So I didn't.  And it was great to have a night to myself to go to bed early or spend time with my girls! 

I am motivated to get all of our projects done and over with.  This might mainly be fueled by the urge to stop living in a construction zone more than the actual completion of the project.  But you have to take what you can get.   

Hopefully, I will motivated to get back to Weight Watchers one day, preferably soon.  But I think it is a "win" this week to go with what feels right and not worry so much on what I'm not doing.  Enjoying what I have chosen to do is enough.
