Trouble with motivation

on May 20, 2013

I don’t know what’s wrong lately, but I’m struggling. I’m having a lot of trouble staying motivated. I don’t seem to have enough drive. All I want to do is eat or sleep. I don’t know what it is. I haven’t been to the gym for several days now — I took Thursday off for my mom’s birthday, I couldn’t push myself to go Friday or all weekend, and today is a holiday so buses aren’t running. I don’t know where my motivation and drive has gone, but I wish it would come back.

I thought I had this self-motivation thing under control, but I guess I was wrong. I had gotten pretty good at pushing myself. Or so I thought. Suddenly I can’t seem to make myself do what I need to do. And I don’t know why.

I don’t want to give up. I want to keep going. I need to keep going. So what’s the problem?? Why am I having so much trouble?

Maybe tomorrow will be a better day. Maybe tomorrow I will feel better when I wake up. Maybe tomorrow I will be ready to go when my alarm goes off. Maybe tomorrow I will be excited when I get to the gym. Maybe tomorrow I won’t have a problem pushing myself. Maybe.

    Sometimes that happens, but it won’t be permanent. You said this has been going on for a few days, right? Are you stressed or feeling depressed? Maybe you just need a bit of a break and then you’ll get right back to it.
