Get up and try again

Happy Monday! So today is THE day. The day that I am supposed to be back on track with everything. My hair is supposed to be at a 100%. I should be sporting a face full of make-up. I should be on my A game at work. I was supposed to have a great breakfast. I was supposed to have a great healthy lunch (well this actually did happen), and I am supposed to go workout after work. Now. Ask me how many of those things I actually did accomplish. One. So far. One.

My typical self would just totally throw the towel in and say, bye. I will start again next week. Frist of all, let me tell you, I am a perfectionist and not just any perfectionist. I am the type that if I do not do exactly as I told myself that I would do, I just give up. I throw a big pity party and say to you know what with it. Oh yeah, and I tell myself that I suck. At everything. At life. But not today. Today, I am telling myself, tomorrow is another day. Get up and try again. Okay so to be fair, the day is not over yet so I can still accomplish a lot more but I have way too much going on today. It is my mom’s and my niece’s birthday. So most of my evening will be spent at a restaurant, celebrating. And eating cake. Oh. God. Please. Help. Me.

I want to be one of those girls that just seem to have it all together, you know? The ones that have a full face of makeup all the time. Their hair never looks rough. Oh and they jog, eat good, do everything just right. Or at least it seems that way. Where is my motivation to do all of that. Where?! Sometimes I wish there was just a simple solution. Can someone please invent a simple solution. Just kidding. I know that in order to see results, you have to put in the work. So that is what I need to figure out within the next couple of days. Something to get me moving. My motivation. What will it be? So tomorrow I will drag myself to the gym. I will drag myself to the gym at least three times this week. There. It is on paper now. It is in front of everyone to see. I am committed for this week.

Readers, if you are like me. You are probably more common than what you think. A lot of us battle with so many things. I know people say, well if you aren’t doing it then how do you expect results. Or they call us lazy. But sometimes it is not that. Sometimes there are underlying issues. Congrats to all of those who have battled those issues and won! That is awesome. But some of us are still out here battling and sometimes we lose way too many times that we just give up or we tell ourselves that no matter how hard we try, it will never happen. I am here to tell you that you can do this! Whatever you are having trouble starting, you will eventually get there. Small steps. That is what is important. Start somewhere. Do something about it. That is the first step.

Today I ate a healthy lunch. Yay me! Tomorrow I will do the same thing but add a physical activity for 30 minutes. Tomorrow I will fix my hair. But first of all, I will get a good nights rest. Because I need it. Thank you for stopping by! Have a happy Monday!
