Struggling With Consistancy

I'm motivated, and then I'm not.


With the New Boy around, I really struggle with breaking away from the couch to spend an hour or 2 alone with the greenbelt. My weight is up 4 pounds since this last summer. It's not a lot, but hard enough for me to get rid of when its there.

I want to do the 50K I did last year, again this year. But with the training plan I have going on above, it would really hurt if I did attempt it. I want to really win and place in more races in 2014. I can't really do that if I struggle with being consistent in my workouts.

Good news is my work schedule has been switched around and has been just perfect for working out after work. I feel silly when I have the whole gym to myself, and I don't do some form of lifting for at least a half hour to an hour after.

From my IG
Monday, I ran around the indoor track for almost an hour. The 2 weeks previously, I spent a couple hours total doing supersets for my upper body and rowing on the rowing machine.

I want to swim in the pool but being in a swim suit with people around - so scary! Plus my swimming ability is so weak. I don't know if I can do anything other then float/backstroke. Although, I did get brave and get in the hot tub for a few minutes.

I also took a post-run selfie with my swimsuit on.

Not totally happy
Actually, I took 2 and that pic above is the 2nd one. I will not post the 1st one on this blog - ok I lie. I will. It is what I am using for motivation to be more consistent with my workouts! 

We are not going to have this any bigger on the blog but I look at it often on my phone!
My Athleta suit used to be tighter a year ago. Now, it fits a little baggy.  But my thighs seem a little more flabby then what they were last year. I don't know if it is healthy to use current unflattering pics of myself as motivation to workout and be more consistent with my running?

But I am. I am my own motivation.

What do you do for motivation? Swimsuit selfies? Healthy motivation or no?

  1. I think it's a good idea. Just don't focus on how "bad" you were. I think you look great!

  2. Awe you look good! I still haven't gotten a swimsuit. Everyone tells me Athleta is the place to go but I had a suit from there many moons ago and the bra pad things would migrate and fold. Drove me nuts. Do you have a race coming up? That's always what keeps me running.

  3. I'm with ya on the consistency struggle! I had a great run streak going, then tanked it. Hoping to get back out tomorrow.

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
