ive got no idea how many times i have been on here going yes, i need more motivation. i was doing really well with my last set of goals, but then i had a weekend away and realised how much fun eating, drinking and not exercising really is!!
well im back, there is a desire in my mind to do this, and a need in my body to do this. im just struggling to work out how. im fine if i have a routine that works for me, but my lifestyle at the moment gives me absolutely no routine what so ever.
im a nursing student and am having many weeks of placement and exams at the moment, so not quite sure how to go about this.
i havent even gotten on the scales yet, i dont really want to.
i no what i need to do, and why i need to do it, just not quite sure how to do it.
so here it is:
i need to remember that just because im bored doesnt mean eating is a hobby (i dont eat when im sad - i eat much less when im down, just eat when im bored)
i need to remember that just because something in my tummy niggles doesnt mean i NEED to eat
just because its 10am or 3pm doesnt mean i need to eat
need to remember that helping myself now will help myself in the future
my physical problems wont just go away - back pain
apparently an arrhythmia (not diagnosed yet but playing with an ECG machine on placement may have been a good idea - must go to the dr bout this one
had anaemia and vit. d deficiency but i think theyve been resolved (altho iron levels need to be kept up)
well thats what i can come up with at the moment - im under the impression that if im physically healthy then my mental health will be either in a much better place, or at least easier to cope with.
im also having surgery in january, just for my wisdom teeth, but do i really want to get on the scales and be ashamed? and id like to be fit and healthy so i recover quickly. i used to be very fit and healthy, but then i moved out of home and lost routine. i need to learn to live without routine, im going to be a nurse so there will be no routine.
at the moment i see my optimum weight is 77kg
and im (hopefully) going to start steve monagetti's run for the kids training program, it starts easy but gets harder. i also plan on doing some swimming to help my knees and back.
i think im going to see a dr about this and see how that goes, also might have a crack at a nutritionist? i usually am up there with nutrition but im just not at the moment, and not sure where to start.
im also thinking bout having a semi-regular massage or something to keep me feeling nice and relaxed and pain free.
what i really need tho is some hints/tips/motivation. i think it sounds like ive got it altogether, but it doesnt feel like i do, i guess im just finding it hard when i have so much work on my plate, but thats life i guess.
anywho, thanks for reading this, i think i need to go do some soul searching
