Humbled Females: new forum reply to Not today…

New reply from OdinsFlower

<p>Ultimately the health benefits of such a change have always been what drives me,.</p>
<p>So if a diet would make my body work more optimally and my owner doesn't buy (insert what Im not allowed here), for a couple months and I "push through" on the exercise or food part often enough I'll do it even when I'm tired because I remember whatever health benefit it had for me in particular.</p>
<p>I'll "fixate" on the positive image of "the hike bringing me moments of mental clarity in life/ and peace of mind" and "that its cathartic".</p>
<p>That "the diet really helped me with x things and is helping my body work better so I can have more energy and less of x issue".</p>
<p>Basically I choose to redirect my focus when it matters, even though I feel the change just as anyone would when adapting it takes only two weeks to "make a habit"(generally) and 3mths to change the most stubborn and large, body dependence(food wise).</p>
<p>It also helps to think of things not in terms of "what you removed from life" for some habits but what you replaced those things with.</p>

Not today…

<p>Do you have methods that you use for moments you just really really really don’t feel like doing things?</p>
<p>I seem to at times hit a wall. Everything goes along fine and I get into a good routine, and suddenly wake up one day and don’t feel like exercising (for example). I will push through it but the next day it is there again and again and again… feeling like it’s laying in wait for the first “reason” or sign of opportunity and bam! the moment my mind finds a “legitimate” reason as to why I “should” skip exercising that day, I do. The problem doesn’t end there though. It just snowballs from there until suddenly a week has passed and I haven’t done any exercise.</p>
<p>the exercise is just an example… it’s more the mindset around it all that I’m hoping to get some help with gaining clarity on please.</p>
