Stay-at-home day... I don't remember

We talked weeks ago about making a schedule so this weird time we’re in doesn’t throw us off too much. Have you been sticking to it? I haven’t. I didn’t even create one.

I have been waking up every day about 6 am (give or take 15 minutes) because that’s when my dog, Henry, wants to wake up. I haven’t needed an alarm. We eat breakfast, then I goof off on my phone until 8am when it’s time for me to sign in to my work computer and work. That’s what I do until noon or one, whenever I’m allowed to take lunch. Some days I eat lunch before so I can take a nap during that hour, some days I eat then. After my hour break, I’m back at work until 5 or 6 depending on the day.

After work I may go for a walk, I may make dinner, I may lay in bed watching tv until I fall asleep. I workout about once a week. I have no motivation, all of my days blend into one.

The truth is no one is going to fix that but me. And I’ve been rolling that around for days, how do I fix that?

I have goals that I want to accomplish:

  • Healthy pregnancy
  • Better athlete
  • Long term health

But those are really easy to ignore when I feel stuck.

Motivation isn’t really important here, though, is it? Motivation is always what gets you started, not what gets you across the finish line.

Instead I’m going to revist a quote I posted on our social media back in December:

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
Motivation is overrated.
Discipline is far more powerful and reliable over the long haul.
To be truly successful, you must be disciplined enough to grind even on those days when you don’t want to do anything.
That’s often what separates winners and losers.” - Ross Enamait

So it’s time to dig deep, motivation will not carry me, but as most of you know, I’m quite the stubborn individual. It’s time for determination and discipline to take over.

I’m going to set a schedule, outline my goals, and stay the course so I can achieve them.

Are you working toward your goals or are they being derailed with the current climate? Let me help you get back on track! Share your goals with me and let’s outline a plan of attack.
