It’s day 21 of the challenge. I have to be honest, I have been SERIOUSLY slacking the last several days. I wasn’t at all sore, but my legs were so tired, it felt like they were cooked noodles & just to walk felt like I was trying to move through waist deep sand. I could not find it in me to complete the tasks. I did do a little each day, but it was very little.
However, I AM committed! I’m not going to beat myself up for having to rest and now that I have I am getting right back on that pony and finishing strong. In fact, a few members of the group want to continue to work towards making fitness a habit, so we will be starting Couch to 5k after this challenge is complete (in addition to whatever the group’s new challenge may be). And so it will continue.
Today I came across a quote attributed to Whitney Thorne- “And I don’t like to do things that threaten my ability to be strong, and to look strong.” It actually made me quite sad to read that, but did boost my motivation. That’s not the mindset I want for myself, after all.
How do you deal with the loss of motivation?
