Motivation: It's not that I'm lazy, it's just that I don't care.source

Hi all!  As part of my Mamavation campaign, I’ll be posting videos every Monday for your pleasure!  Today’s topic: motivation.  How do you get it, how do you keep it, what do you do when you lose it?  [In case you’re curious, I’m sitting on the floor and my daughter is in her crib, which is why I am looking up at her…  :)]

So that’s my question to you today!  Something else I was thinking of as I sweated my way through Shred level 1 & 2 today…  do you ever feel angry or frustrated by getting healthy?  Do you ever, in the midst of a particularly challenging workout or bad day, feel deeply irritated by how hard you have to work?  I do.  Sometimes, in the middle of a workout or the end of a hard day, I get a little angry.  It bugs me that I have to work SO HARD to see results… but then it’s worth it, and really… doesn’t everyone have to work hard?  Are there really people out there who are just healthy, with no effort?  I doubt it.

This vlogging thing is kind of fun!

  2. Oh loved the video! So awesome! I used to dread working out and would lose motivation too. But now that I have found something I LOVE (running) I get frustrated when I can’t do it! I loathe rest days and am bummed about having to travel to the States where I know I will feel jet lagged for a few days and am worried how it will affect “my training” lol. This time around weight loss wise EVERYTHING is different. I eat better foods, I track every calorie and I found an exercise that’s rewarding and fun. It makes losing weight so much easier (I’ve dropped 20 pounds in just 3 months) and it actually didn’t feel hard for once. It’s weird. I thought I had to be frustrated, restricted and deprived to get results and it’s totally the opposite of that. I feel like it’s a dream or something.
