The Problem with Motivation

Is that to get things done, you actually have to have some.

And where do you get this motivation? I have no earthly idea. Some are born with it and sometimes it comes to me in the form of a sugar free red bull (yes, I know they are horrible for you)

Well today I find myself with absolutely no motivation. I don't want to go grocery shopping (even though I desperately need to), clean the apartment (again needs to be), or go to the gym (I went yesterday--does that count?) Maybe I'm getting sick. Who knows. All I know is that my New Year's Resolutions are not getting done and you can kiss the Future Goals goodbye as well.

I envy those who can keep their apartment clean, go to the gym 3-5x a week, and eat healthy for more than one week. Some might say I don't want it bad enough. Well, please tell me how to want it bad enough. Any pointers?

I want to be skinny/healthy and a neat person, but I'd much rather put life on hold and soak in a bubble bath, eat pizza, and watch a movie than clean, go to the gym, and/or eat healthy (most days anyways--today being one of them) If only that were actually possible--I'd get caught up on sleep, bills, and the never ending to do list.

I guess I'll just have to fake it till I make it

  1. I envy anyone who has their shit together. Aka not me. Also the crazies that go to the gym 5 days a week? Pretty sure THEY ARE NOT HUMAN.

  2. Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I really love your blog! If you happened to get the inspiration for the name from the movie " Because I said so" then I think we should be friends lol. By the way I feel the same way that you do. Sometimes it is tough to stay motivated and to find the time. What helps me is to get an early start. The more I get done in the morning the more productive the day tends to be.

    1. Hey thanks girl! I actually did get the name from the movie--it's one of my absolute faves and I know pretty much all the words--I guess we are bffs now!
