The Wane of it

Posted on: July 7, 2012

The motivation is waning…I can feel it.  I can tell.  The alarm doesn’t make me want to jump out of bed in the morning.  I’m staying up way too late.  I’m letting my kids stay up way too late.  I know that no matter what time I put them in bed they are still going to be up at 8am, so why do I let them stay up too late…because it’s summer and that’s what you do in the summer time.  Stay up late.  But them not going to bed until 10:30 or 11 means I don’t get to go to bed until 12ish.  That is just too late if I want to get up at 6:30.  I need to be going to bed at 10:30, and I’m pretty sure that’s not going to happen.

So, how do I make it happen?  By the end of the day I am wishing I’d gotten up and got moving early.  I’m also noticing that when I sleep later my eating is messed up and then I’m hungry late because I haven’t eaten enough during the day.  I’ve still been okay on the snacking, but it is getting harder again.

I need to change it.  I need to get back to a bedtime that lets me get enough sleep for me and still lets me get up early enough to get my workout in.  Slow results lead to loss of interest for me, and I’m there.  With the calorie counting and no outward physical results (ie: I’m still wearing the same size and it doesn’t feel that different) I don’t feel like doing this anymore. 

Tomorrow will be better…since it is Sunday I don’t have a choice to sleep in because we have church.  I will make the best effort to get up and run.  I will make my best effort to start my day before 10am.  I will.
