Do you ever have one of those days where you have zero motivation to do anything? Yesterday was one of those days for me. I worked an hour later than normal, which throws me off to begin with. After two days of beautiful weather, yesterday was cold, dark, and windy. I got home from work, made dinner, and then plopped on the couch for the rest of the night. I had zero motivation to do anything. There were dishes to take care of, laundry to put away, and a workout to be done. But I didn't do any of it.
I don't like days where I'm unmotivated. I feel like I wasted my day. I blamed it on the weather, but I know that I only have myself to blame for my lack of motivation. I joined the #1800MinuteChallenge which started yesterday and I did nothing towards it. That lack of motivation ends today. I always feel so much better after I work out, so I'm committing to doing it every day. Whether it's a walk with my husband and dog, a workout with my Jillian Michaels DVD, or a run (I do have a 5k in May I need to train for), I'm going to do something everyday.
Also, this month's Intentional Life Project topic is Time Management. I'll have a full post dedicated to this next week, but what I'm going to do is get up 20-30 minute earlier than normal every morning. I'm much more motivated in the morning than when I get home from work, so I'm hoping to get a couple things done in the mornings before work. Whether it's emptying or reloading the dishwasher, taking care of laundry, writing a blog post, etc. I think that extra time will make me feel better when I get home and don't have things waiting for me to get done.
What do you do to stay motivated?
