This week has been extremely difficult. I was mentally and physically prepared for making changes in my life, and motivated to use the Wii for my workouts. What I didn’t expect was that my daughter was not on board with any life changes I needed to make. This whole week has been nothing but sleepless nights, and waking up in the middle of the night with a screaming child. The cry it out method may work to get the point across to her, but it does nothing for my sanity. I feel like the ultimate basket case.
For the most part my diet hasn’t suffered, except for the IV fluids of coffee I have ingested. I have maintained eating well, and not over eating during meals. I have slacked on my exercising, because I am so exhausted every day. And instead of making the exhaustion worse for both Jon and I, I have chosen to go to bed or sleep in instead of working out.
I imagine I can’t get down on myself to much for the extraneous circumstances, but I can’t help but feel like I have no motivation now. Outside of all the advice about sleeping children I have gotten, I really haven’t had a lot of support. My overworked husband has been at his wits-end with fatigue, and can’t muster up much encouragement either. So, I’m asking for all of you to tell me when was the last time you didn’t give up? When did you motivate yourself, and pulled yourself up out of the funk? I need the inspirational stories more now then ever.
