Finding Motivation Is Hard Sometimes!

This is what I see as I look out my slide n glass door by my treadmill each morning that I workout. Looking at these pretty yellow flowers never fails to cheer me up. I can't wait to be back outside doing my run/walk program in my favorite park which is behind my house. Lately its been to cool for me to be outside trying to run/walk I have asthma so I have to be careful working out outside in the winter. Any way I thought I would share a little sunshine with my readers.

Its been one of those weeks with my workouts where I have felt very unmotivated in fact I may just finish this week out with only 4 cardio workouts. I did my weight workout routine twice and worked on my abs (my least favorite area of my body) twice. After working out for 13 years now sometimes its still a struggle that never completely goes away.

I'm frustrated at how slow my body loses weight. Right now its going between 164- 164.5 depending on the day of the week ugh! I think its much harder to lose just a few pounds than a bunch of weight at least in the beginning. I start out each day keeping my food diary and then forget it after such thing as perfect record keeping at least for me.

Got sad news today that one of my elderly neighbors died overnight not unexpected but still say you know?

Hopefully my next workout will be better than my last and next week will be a great one!


  1. Sorry to hear about your neighbor :(

  2. Love that you put those pretty little flowers where you can walk and see them.

    Perfect isn't real. Keep it real!

  3. I'm sorry about your neighbor! I hope everything is ok with them.
    And yes... I can't wait for the weather to warm up too! Working out inside is just not the same
