Flailing Fighting Fit My Life 27 JAN 2008

SaladAaargh!! I can’t believe how unmotivated I am towards my health these last couple of months. I am finally sitting on the dreaded 100kg mark and am doing absolutely nothing about it whatsoever. I don’t understand it. I never used to have to try and motivate myself to go out and get some exercise – hell, there was a time when I was doing something extremely energetic seven days a week! And now I struggle to even get two sessions in!

Seriously, I don’t know what is going on with me. I’m overweight, I can feel my body is full of toxins and whatnot, making me sluggish and irritable, and yet I seem completely devoid of all willpower and a lack of desire to turnaround my situation. Just what the heck is going on here? Am I really getting that old that I don’t care and don’t feel like it already?!?

My knee is finally pretty good for most normal actions at last, so I can’t really use that as an excuse anymore. I have the time during the week, heck, I even have equipment in my very flat. So how come I am not motivated to do anything?

Damn, this is very frustrating. The only way I seem to be able to go to gym is if I go specifically to attend a class like Katabox for instance. It is only in these classes that I feel obliged to spend an hour at gym – if I weren’t in that class situation I would more than likely be in and out in ten minutes – and probably on my way to getting snacks.

Terrible. If I don’t do something now it might very well become too late to do anything at all! *sigh*, pass me another carrot stick please’ :(

And it isn’t helping that Chantelle and my proposed plan of action – Operation Let’s Get Fit – seems to have pretty much nosedived even before we began! Clearly we need to find something to blame other than ourselves and quickly! ;)
